Discover Boating Ambassador - Making Lifelong Memories #MC

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

We have always enjoyed being on the water.  I grew up near a lake, and we actually live on the lake now.  We completely gutted and remodeled this house to make my dream of living on the lake a reality. Below is the first picture I ever took off the dock when we were viewing the house.  My husband and I bought our first ski boat 4 years ago.  We love being able to have it at the dock in our backyard instead of packing everything up every Saturday and heading to a landing to put in.

The first summer was spent remodeling, but last summer(and of course, this summer) we got to enjoy lake living at it's finest.  The kids and I are out swimming off of the dock pretty much daily, but nothing beats being on the boat.  Family comes over pretty much every weekend and we go boating Saturdays and Sundays.  We have all learned to do water sports and are going to get a bigger wakeboarding boat next summer(our group of family and friends keeps growing).  Evan actually learned how to wakeboard already this summer!

Father's Day is this Sunday, and we will definitely be out on the boat and hanging out on the dock.  In honor of Father's Day, this is my daddy riding from the back of our boat about two years ago.  My daddy will never grow up, and I look forward to many more years of making memories on our boats.
This short film, Good Run, is a touching video about a man's life journey by boat.

I haven't been on a boat in years, but I do love going out on the ocean sometimes.

It looks like you all have so much fun. I would be a big old chicken. I have major anxiety issues being out on the water. I am boring!! The program looks like a great one.

Hubby and I sold our boat 3 years ago, and I definitely miss the wakeboarding!

Boats are always great fun, I've gone on a ton of them throughout my life.

Looks like a lot of fun but I try to stay on shore because I'm not a very good swimmer.

Ahhhh I so miss living on the lake and being able to boat whenever we want! Now we have to make a drive for it, and rent a boat...no fun!

I would so love to take my kids waterskiing. I bet my oldest would love it! Those photos are making me think about how we might be able to get him there this summer.

When we lived in California, we looked at purchasing a boat. Here in Iowa, we talked about it but decided we didn't want one. I hate the Mississippi River and that's the most likely place to boat around here.
