First Wakeboard Comp of the Year

Friday night we headed down to Orlando (we left late... AGAIN!) so that we could make it to OWC for Dean's first Orlando comp and the first comp of the year the next morning. We ended up arriving at our hotel about 11:30... so not too bad.


Sat morning started out a bit rushed... we ended up over sleeping... but made it there before the rider meeting which was promptly at 9am.


We had a friend riding in the contest too... Morgan... we met him when we started the All Wet Sports contest... they live in Tampa (we're actually fixing visit them on one of our vaca's at the end of the month, I can't wait!). Well Morgan's parents (awesome people!) brought they're sweet RV with them so we got to sit in it all day and watch the contest in the AC! :)

Morgan's division was up first.... here some pics of him....






Morgan ended up tying for either fourth or fifth place... can't remember!

Dean rode around 1ish... his run started out strong... but he was a bit thrown off... he was suppose to ride 3rd and well the 2nd guy didn't show so he ended up having to throw all his stuff on the dock and get ready to ride very quickly. Then I hadn't had a chance to make it back down so he ended up wearing his wedding band.... which was one of the problems as well. When he went for one of his spins toward the end of his 1 run it almost slid off his finger so he let go of the rope in order to keep it (smart man!). So then he was so worried about loosing it that he through a trick that he NEVER throws and well fell. So needless to say this contest wasn't a hit for him. Anyways... Here are a couple of pics that I managed to grab.....






Daddy and Zane watching the contest....



After watching the rest of the contest we decided to head back to the hotel and do some swimming. Well we ended up crashing for a few hours... we're still catching up, lol! When we got up we decided to hit up Downtown Disney for some food... T-REX is the magical place we ate. It was really neat. The room we were in had a meter shower every 20 min... the lights would dim and the dinosaurs would go a bit crazy. There were a couple other rooms too... I counted at least 3 others. Here's a few pics....






Zane back at the hotel... wide awake and playing with his new dinosaur. He actually picked it out too.. really! We were walking around trying to figure out what, if we were going to get him anything and he grabbed this dinosaur behind me while we were looking at something else... ok so maybe he's just at that age, lol, but he still picked it out!







Sunday morning Dean went out and got breakfast while I fed Zane and got everything packed up to leave. Once we had ate we decided to hit the pool before leaving since we missed it the night before. Zane's first time in a pool ;) ....
