DH and I have no children of our own, so we live vicariously through our nieces and nephews (and now, Grand nieces and nephews).



This is our nephew Nick.
This is only his third time wakeboarding, not bad huh?

My husband's family is quite athletic; they participate in all sorts of sports at all levels... what happened to me? Oh yeah, I'm the Auntie with the camera in their faces all of the time

Yeah, I know, it was a photo op...it makes me want to chew nails.
I saw a video of someone else doing a tandem jump and only the instructor was wearing a helmet, so I got curious and googled. It's because it wouldn't be safe for the instructor. And if anyone bumps their head and gets dizzy or temporarily confused / disoriented, it's much safer if it isn't the person who knows what they are doing.

Taxi, my son added the instructor is saved from the drool factor.
