Sunset at Lake Powell

So, I guess that since I have a little bit of time I should play catch up on our summer adventures. Every year we are invite by the Smith/Pratt family to attend their annual family Lake Powell trip. I must say, this trip always makes me a bit nervous-lots of water, little boys etc., but Scott loves this trip, it is the highlight of his year. So, Scott was very excited to go this year, and by the time we get there I am always happy to be there too. We just love the Smith/Pratt family and enjoy spending the warm summer days with them at the Lake!

As you can tell by the photos there is many an hour dedicated to the water-swimming, boating, waterskiing/wakeboarding, canoeing etc. We also hiked a bit which was fun. My boys absolutely loved riding the sea doo. In fact ever time Evan saw the sea doo he would point to it and make some sound (it has been too long for me to remember what he would "say"), but he loved the sea doo. In fact all four of us took it out and we let each boy have a turn driving and pushing the throttle and Evan just cracked up when he was in control.

You can't go wrong with such a beautiful location.
