Lake Powell...

We arrived home Late last night from Lake Powell!
This is one of our Favorite Vacations, it is always so much work but the kids & Cory have an absolute Blast!
The water level rose 2 feet every day making it alot of work for the Daddy's to Re-Anchor the Houseboat EVERYDAY!! {that is a good thing, i guess}
We went with The Granums, and Lacey & Mc Call. This trip was Definitely for Boston & Chase, "2" 8 year old boys who would Rip {no Joke} at Surfing, Wakeboarding, Jet Skiing, Kneeboarding {boston almost did a 360 } and Tubing!
They were seriously so awesome at all of this, and they did it all behind the boat, which has a good size of a Wake! Jenn, Lacey and Mc Call perfected their skills of Surfing and Wakeboarding as Well, while i enjoyed watching everyone tear it up while sitting on the Boat!

Hayes & Olivia went Tubing and fishing and loved driving the boat. Today Hayes was singing the song "4 Minutes" haha...But i think the highlight of the trip for everyone was watching the little kids "Skinny Dip" while washing up on "Skinny Dip Jet Ski night" hahaha
We also had a lot of Houseboat fun as well, with Yummy Dinners every night and Dessert! The kids { oh i mean Lacey & Mc Call} would Color everyday and we had some Killer Coloring Contests {dads were involved too}! We played Games, PSP's, had BonFires, ate S'mores, watched Movies and enjoyed
Being together with NO Cell Phones!

All The boys minus Crew...Oops!
CHEERS!

Hayes & Liv's {Hayes wore those sunglasses the whole day, it was so funny}

You look adorable Shannon! I can't wait to meet your new baby girl! Your trip to Powell sounds like it was so much fun. Boston and Chase are total STUDS! I love all of your pics, the kids all look so cute, what great memories for all of them. It was so much fun seeing Boston today, Kate was so excited that he was coming. Thank you so much for the Webkinz too, she loved it! Boston is such a sweet kid, it was fun hanging out with him-thank you for letting him come!

Jane said...

first of all, I am so glad you are all home - Myla was just dying without her two buddies in town!

What a perfect trip - the water looks so green and pretty! I love that last picture - classic!

I heard the story about the skinny dipping, hilarious!

You look gorgeous - belly mama!

Trav & Linds said...

How fun! We are headed to Lake Powell in a few weeks, so I'm glad to hear there is lots of water, and it looks so warm! The swim lessons my kids take are private, they are awesome. It is a lady on Palisade Drive. Her name is Pam and her number is 225-5753. (I hope she doesn't mind a little blog publicity.) Congrats on the new little baby too!

Heather said...

WHat a fun trip! I love the family photo and the one of Liv in her dress. Cute kids! Cam and Coop have been asking for a sleepover, so beware!

Ellery said...

If I know you, it probably about killed you to sit and watch, and not be able to wake board yourself. I am not surprised Boston is good at all that stuff, (it's in the genes!) Olivia's suits are to die for! Looks like you guys had a blast (hard not to in Lake Powell).

Nobles Family said...
