Lake Powell and more!

We had a great wk at Lake Powell, how can you not!! This is our 6th yr going. It was colder this yr then any other yr we've been, so we spent less time in the water, but still had a wonderful time! We rode wave runners, hike up to cool indian ruins dated back to the 1200's and went on a day cruise south of Bullfrog. Lincoln (4) got up kneeboarding for the first time and did great! Isabelle was not interested in being pulled behind the boat til the last day when she finally tried kneeboarding and loved it! . Conner mastered kneeboarding and even got up surfing!! I did a little wakeboarding and tried surfing for the first time, which I loved!! My brother inlaws were great at helping me and the kids!! Thanks Scott and Jim!! Steve was wanting to do some surfing, but since his last back surgury, that's a no go. He did love the wave runners and Winston (and all the kids) loved it too! Steve and I slept out under the amazing stars most nights on the top deck of the house boat. It was the perfect vacation from our never ending vacation. It was so nice to not have to ride in our car for a whole wk!
We spent last Sat night at Steve's parents and had a nice visit with them. It was sooo nice to have a real shower after a wk of lake water showers. Sunday evening we had dinner with our good friends Matt & Anna (and Fisher and Mason). Wonderful people that have traveled the world and have the pottery to prove it! Monday, Isabelle was able to go to her old Girl Scout troop and have a sleep over with her best friend Margaret. I had a great time visiting with my very good friends Karen and Tammy. Monday night Steve and I celebrated our 11th anniversary. We had a great dinner dropped in on our friends Tara and Billy (they love that...haha) then spent the night at a B&B. It was sooo nice to have some alone time since we have been with the kiddos 24/7 for the last 5 wks. We are missing date nights. Tuesday we went to pick up Isabelle and had a nice visit with Karen. Tuesday night we had dinner with our friends Patrica & Sam and my kids loved playing with Bracken and Portland again. I'm not sure our little ones (Choncy and Winston)loved it so much as they are in that age where they don't like to share and Winston wanted to take all of Choncy's toys. Isabelle got to sneak in a playdate with another good friend, Becka, that night too. Wed we got up early and headed out to Timp Cave, but when we got up there we found out it was booked up with school groups. So we hung out with Steve's sister June's family. It was a nice visit and we even were blessed with a Matt sighting...LOL! Wed afternoon I was able to have an afternoon at a spa. I have never done that, but it may have to be a new habbit!! It was soooo nice! Today (Thurs) we get our U-haul and start loading up. We plan to leave first thing tomorrow to head back to NC!
Love & Peace!!
