lake powell trip

lake powell 2010

we made our way to one of our most favorite places this past week.
just past page, arizona, lies the most beatiful lake ever.
we have spent many summers here, both jason and I, making good memories.
now we are getting to make new memories with our kids.

-jack went cliff jumping, tried to water ski, tried to tandem wakeboard with his dad, rode the tube with the big kids, slept under the stars on the roof of the houseboat, played monoply with di anna (sort of), sea shell hunted, and roasted marshmallows with his papa.

-ava played in the water, made drip castles in the sand, had dance parties on the roof with aunt kayda, practiced doing hair on aunt dani, took naps with her nana, and enjoyed slow tube rides.

-eden loved riding on the boat and cheered everyone on as they skiid and stuff behind the boat, love throwing sand in the water, stuffed her face with m&ms whenever possible, loved opening and closing the door at the top of the houseboat, and loved all the attention she got from her aunts and her nana.

-jason and i did the usual. skiid, wakeboarded, cliff jumped, tubed until we were literally thrown off, watched late night movies, ate and ate, napped (jason only), and relaxed our butts off.

even at 29 i can still manage a back flip off a cliff.
my incredible father who still skiis like a pro at 63 years young.
dad you're a rockstar!
*some added highlights to this trip were watching the US in the world cup (even though they lost in extra time) and eating my dad's homemade chocolate ice cream. yum.

the end.

Oh gosh, I loooove Lake Powell. You are lucky ducks. And your pictures are so am-a-zing. Especially that first one.

You guys are kinda brave. Mommies who do back flips off cliffs? Gosh Deb, you're like She-Ra. ;) And Jack, being daring enough to jump off? Where'd you get a kid like that? Pretty cool.
