Taylor skateboarding

One of Taylor's favorite sports is skateboarding. He has been doing it for several years and has gotten to be pretty good. I realized that I am not usually around where he is skating & I didn't have any pictures of him. So I had him go out front and do a few tricks so I could get some pictures. Of course the best tricks came out blurry but here's a few that aren't too bad. Last year he had a wipeout that tore the ATF ligament in his ankle. The podiatrist recommended surgery so he wouldn't be continually reinjuring it. His surgery was the day before Thanksgiving. He was on crutches for 6 weeks and in a walking boot for another month. Taylor says that he's not able to do some of the moves that he could before the surgery but he's continuing to practice to get back to where he was.
