There's two types of parents, those who enjoy their time with their children, and those that are constantly patching holes in the "bubble of life" that they keep their children in.
Funny thing is...as the bubble children get older, there will probably be a huge source of resentment toward that bubble! I think we all know how the end result generally turns out! (Bubbles pop!)
Every single parent here wishes no harm to any child, but, there are things in life that stand out in all of our minds that as children which has influenced/ molded us into what we do with ourselves today, I dont think a fascination with bubbles and or plastic is really what I want for my kid, the excitement of life and an Eyes wide oped view of life is more of what I want for mine! I dont think the video of Blunder's Slow ass GW :)sphss was out of control, but who am I to Judge his driving skills, I did notice though that when he was turning, he held either the seat, jacket or his daughters hair (Hope not the hair! haha).
These are just my thoughts, nope, im not a perfect parent, but every day I become a better one.
Enjoy!

Hell! I remember once up at Kings River. I must have been 8 or 9 years old...

My Dad had me cruz by the shore where we were camped. I was driving the boat, barely able to reach the gas pedal myself. He was in the passenger seat holding up his beer to his friends as I wizzed by! I was probably only going 25-30 MPH but it felt like 100!

You never forget those things!! I think it's awesome Blender!

As we get older were able to hold on vividly to less and less memories from when we were kids. Still to this day some of my favorite memories were sitting in my dads lap driving the jet boat. We didn't go on any fancy expensive vacations as kids. whenever we were asked if we wanted to go to Disneyland once or go to the lake several times in a summer we ALWAYS chose the lake. Thats why ( to those who have seen my build post) that I spent as much time, effort, and $$$ to get another jet boat together and make some new happy memories with my own kids. Lake/River kids make happy adults. ALWAYS put safety first, but fun is an easy second to achieve! My first weekend with the new boat and my boys will be in two weeks and I can't wait. Have a fun, safe summer to all. Cheers!
