LAKE POWELL

This was are last attempt to keep summer around a little longer. Last weekend we went to Lake Powell with the family {at least most of them}. My dad, mom, Jenicee, Colby, Heather, Hadlee and my little family {the 6 of us} all went. Colby and Heather are great Tour Guides, they always know right where to go.

My kids of course LOVED every minute. All of them are great swimmers and not afraid of the water at all. We teased that Steel is going to be the next Michael Phelps {Ha Ha}. But he really is a good swimmer for how little he is.


We did a little cliff jumping. It took Swayze two tries but then she finally jumped 3 or 4 times. {She doesn't like it when her brother does something she can't}.

Stryker and Hadlee also played non - stop. They really are becoming good friends. But it's definitely a love hate thing.




Of course the kids loved the tube the best. But we also wake boarded {Yes, I wake boarded}, had campfires, ate really good ice cream sandwiches, watched bats and fireworks. And just had a blast!!!


The biggest problem with the whole trip was that it was over too fast... I can't wait for next year, we are definitely staying longer.

Hay I have to say I am proud of the wake boarding thing to - I usually am just a fan of sitting and watching on the boat! Looks fun I want to try and do that next year too!

Gotta love Lake Powell. I'm glad you guys had fun. I'm impressed that you wake board. Last time I tried, I gave up after about the
30th try with no luck. Good job!! :)

Hey you guys! Stapleys' here. Your family is so stinkin' cute and BIG! It's fun to run into people's blogs we haven't seen in a while. We're down in AZ now. And I have to tell you, we've got a Swayze as well. I loved your little Swayze's name so much, and you guys moved, then we moved, so I figured I could get away with it. :) Anyway, hope you're all well. Give that Josh a smooch from Tommy.
