My family's favorite vacation is on a houseboat. We spent the last 4 summers at Trinity Lake in California, but since we are all Utah residents we decided to try out Lake Powell. These two lakes couldn't be more different, but both have their perks. We didn't get the glass water this year at Lake Powell, but we had beaches and Utah arches and bonfires!
Either way, being on a boat is one of my favorite places to be. My family always makes such great memories with each other on the boat. There were 4 toddlers under the age of 3, yet we all made it out alive! ;) All in all, it was a success and we all had such a great time!
And now for the photo overload...
The twins had their first bonfire. It was successful, except the twins did not get to touch the fire like they wanted.
My brother Jace and his wife Bella are a favorite amongst the kids. I mean, do you blame them?
This picture cracks me up. Clara has been terrified of men for a while. By the middle of the week Clara finally let Jace hold her and stayed "content" long enough for this picture, but that scowl!! Ha! However, by the end of the week she was flirting and smiling up a storm with him. Too bad they have now moved to Seattle. :( tears from us all.
Max and his cousin Chandler having the time of their lives in the sand.
The best captain there ever was.
We "hiked" to Rainbow Bridge one day. It was amazing! Utah is rad.
Clara discovered cheetos.
Max and his older cousin, Grayson. Buddies already!
The boat has this amazing ability to put babies to sleep.
The scenery is pretty hard to beat.
Max was obsessed with the ramp that led in and out of the front door. That ramp and a few trucks occupied him for hours. I need a ramp in my house STAT.
Clara's the only granddaughter on my side of the family (for now at least). Lucky girl!
"twinlove" hits again!
Take me back, please?!
And this was our sunset on the last night.
Thanks Lake Powell for an awesome week. We will be back!
