Xtreme Teenager

Zach is obsessed with Xtreme sports and right now that happens to be the Winter X games that just ended. Did you see some of the CRAZY things these athletes attempted?? I mean, how do you figure out that you can do a double back flip on a snowmobile? Or how about spin around 3000 times in the air while on skis? Okay I'm exaggerating a little on that one! It is beyond believe what some of these kids are doing. With that being said I have informed Zach that he will NEVER under any circumstances try any of these stupid things!

He's already had one incident while mountain biking with Dave. This is Dave's new obsession, he's even built his own mountain bike. Crazy, I know. Anyway, while mountain biking over in Boulder City Dave calls me, "Um...we're coming home. Zach wiped out." Okay, I'm thinking, is this like a ER visit wipeout or a mommy kiss it better wipeout. It was kind of in between, he had a pretty deep gash. Well here's the first injury of I'm sure many more to come. And this picture is after a week of healing. Boys will be boys! And Dave is banned from taking Zach to the extreme course for a while!

It reminds me of my stupid brothers thinking it would be cool to skateboard while being pulled by a car. Yes, Spencer and Jared tried this one and Spencer had the roadrash all over his face to prove it. I'll have to find pictures, I'm sure I have them somewhere. They also used to jump off the roof into our pool! Are these the worries I have to look forward to for the next 10 years? Calgon take me away!
