for the past 19 years i have gone to lake powell at least once every summer.
this summer however, we were not able to go with my family and i was deeply saddened. luckily, matt's mission buddy tyler invited us on a trip towards the end of august and my lake powell streak is still going strong.
i was kind of nervous bringing brooks along not only because he was the only kid, but also being 35 weeks pregnant myself. but it was a lovely time.
there were 11 people total and it was so much fun. we all rode down together in a luxury RV. it was perfect because we were all able to get to know each other and hang out on the way down.
we spent the next four days swimming, boating, wake surfing, wake boarding, knee boarding, tubing, playing on wave runners, eating like kings (we basically had a gourmet chef on board), and relaxing times ten.
if you have never been to lake powell i highly suggest it. it's my favorite place on earth, next to disneyland.
brooks took his first tube ride. he was pretty indifferent as his face shows.
also, matt and i celebrated our 2nd anniversary while we were in lake powell. we also celebrated our 1st anniversary in lake powell, so apparently it's becoming tradition. anyway, we had taken a similar kissy picture so we were recreating but matt had brooks in his arms. rather than put brooks down, i told matt to just lower him so he was out of the shot.
we kissed, snapped the picture, and ended up with the best photo bomb of all time.
this picture is priceless :)
it pretty much sums up our little family.
until we meet again, beautiful lake powell.
