Solon goes skiing...

Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Solon tried his hand at skiing on the trainer ski last year and although I had to bribe him with a trip to the marina to get ice cream with grandpa, he was willing to try it again.  He doesn't mind it but there are so many other more enticing things on his agenda, he only need to do it once :)!
This is the EZ Ski trainer, my dad finds the coolest gadgets for "the crown prince" as my parents call him.  Don't tell Solon there is a new prince in town...
Grandpa and Daddy got him all set up...
A quick photo shoot (I am sure he was gritting between his teeth "Oh mom!")
And in true 4 year old "I have no fear" fashion....he was off...
I think the main idea of the contraption is for them to get comfy holding the rope and being behind a boat by themselves.  To be honest, I think he would have enjoyed a few bumps from the wake...
And he went around and around and down the shoreline after we knew he was okay.  We were proud of him trying a new skill and he was excited to go get his much anticipated ice cream!  Next year he might just be old enough to knee board - oh my!

Here is a video of his "mad skills"!
