mccall 2010: the ski… and the wipe-outs


the old man still has it.

until he decided to skip his body across the lake…




don’t worry.  he recovered.  and found his swim suit.


the husband, who has improved immensely since joining the family.  denten wins the prize for skiing the longest.  his quote as he climbed the swim deck the last day, “man, I love that.”


the sister, who always has both the best faces and choice words when entering the ice water.


she wins the prize for being the best skiing sibling, although she claims she skied like a pansy this week.  reason unspecified on this blog at this time.


the brother-in-law, who provided numerous crashes behind the boat.

the other sister, who I used to be better than…


and finally, my son, who made this process as dramatic as his mother used to.  maybe next year, he says…


yes, the goggles were necessary and the negotiations in the water significant.

Ha! "Maybe next year", that is a direct quote from Marky every year when we get out the yellow skis!
