Lake Powell 2012 (The Unabridged Version)

this is one of my favorite vacations.
and the pictures will explain the rest.


Paddleboarding:
(We rented these, and Tyson's secret mission was to get me to love it so that I would let him buy a board...
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!)




Floating:











These are my favorite floating experiences... 
Get a rope that is tied to the houseboat, and just float as far from the boat as you want...

Sleeping:






Learning to water ski:
(Sorry so many pictures, I am just one proud mama!)







Playing games and eating:
















Jetskiing:
Merrick LOVED the jet skis. He would go with Tyson or I and we would let him drive it.
Heaven.on.earth.






Wakeboarding:
How cool is my husband!

There are no pictures of me wake boarding because while I was wake boarding, I caught an edge, and had a nasty fall resulting in a concussion, a massive headache, lots of throw up, and 14 hrs of sleep...

I blacked out when I hit the water, and if I didn't have my life jacket on, I think I would have drowned...
but that is over, and I am fine...
Luckily!








Fishing:






Tubing, Canoeing, Water Wienie-ing:








Hiking:

Awesome trip! I can't believe how beautiful Lake Powell looks with that red rock. (I grew up in Utah and still have NEVER been to Powell! I need to go!)

The rest sounds awesome, though! :)
