O’Brien Screamer, Yeah Baby!

Hey now, get your mind out of the gutter, I mean really!  I’m not sure what you think it is; but for me it involved a lake, motor boat, a lot of coercion and a huge flotation device called, The O’Brien Screamer!  And that is exactly what I did, scream! 

It’s not  everyday your best options are to either:

 A.  Hang on to an inflatable tube going 30 miles per hour praying you don’t loose your bathing suit . -OR- 

B.  Give in to the shear exhaustion, let go all the while knowing your fate is to be launched like a human rock skipping across the top of the water for who knows how long. 

I choose option A and am happy to report I once again, lived to tell about it.

This is a piece of cake, go faster!Whatever you do don't let go!Me catching air on the O'Brien ScreamerStop I have had enough!

I actually wasn’t even going to post about this until I saw these pictures and confirmed that I did in fact, catch air!!  How rad is that?   Anyway, my O’Brien Screamer experience may not been a been a planned ‘momME-adventure’, but I hope you will all agree that it definitely qualifies.

    It sounds like a great time!! Your mission won’t be complete until you jump out of an airplane! I’m going to do that before I kick the bucket.

      You know I am so on board with that idea and have wanted to do it forever. To be honest however; I am actually feeling like it is not the most mommy responsible thing to do. Please talk me into it 🙂

      Hi,
      It was on Saratoga Lake in Saratoga Springs, NY. If you have never been, it is an amazing town and the lake is just beautiful!

    Makes me want to get out in a boat… and wakeboard! I haven’t been in years, but I’d love to do it again!
