A major highlight of the summer is the trip to Lake Powell with Hub's fam. It's always exciting to see how much stuff we can pack in bags and coolers, actually fit it into our van, then transfer it all onto a boat and then transfer it again to the houseboat and then unpack it all and then do the reverse order in a few days time.
This year Ethan and Mitch got to go down early with the old folks. They got to do some hiking.
Noelle must have picked up some modeling tips from the womb when I used to watch ANTM....
Hub and Syd trying out the water. It was a bit cold for some of the kids. Syd didn't appreciate it. And Hub's arms got super tan by the end of the week in case you're wondering.....
Ike liked to do some fancy jumps off the back of the houseboat. This move was called The Ballerina.
Noelle and cousin Dayton trying to sneak off on a jet ski.
The ever popular tube.
Sometimes the kids just wanted to play in their life jackets on top of the bunk. Go figure.
Boys on the tube.
It's the end of June and we finally made it on a family hike. We are so lucky to live 5 minutes away from some beautiful canyons, lakes and trails.
Hub set the self-timer and didn't quite take his sunglasses off in time.
Told you that Noelle wants to be a super model.
Our little cheeseball kids.
Isn't the scenery lovely? And you can kindof tell that Ethan only picked up two sticks to take home. It's a miracle.
