Lake Powell 2009

At the beginning of the month we were invited by the Controller of the Little America Hotel's to join his family on a house boat at Lake Powell. The answer was a no brainer except would my family be able to behave themselves so that Fred would still have a job and how was I going to contain Mr. Sean? We had a great time left on Thursday and came back Sunday. Lake Powell is 2 1/2 hours away from our house and it is definitely one of the most beautiful places on earth. I think I've become spoiled because I don't know if I can ever go back now without being on a houseboat. Here are just some of the pictures...

Sean and Maxwell (Maxwell just turned 5 in August, yeah he was twice the size of Sean)

Sarah jumping off of the side.

The full moon coming up as the sun went down.

LOVE the hair!

Celebrated Sydney's 7th Birthday!

Sean's favorite place to be the HotTub (Doesn't it look inviting!)

The Family at Rainbow Bridge, very big and very beautiful!

Do you see the ranger? She is going to tell our group your to close to the bridge, some of the local tribes consider Rainbow Bridge sacred and you're NOT supposed to walk under it.

Meg, Cassie, and the guy we rescued! Sunday coming going back to the marina took us about 5 hours. The wind was awful and the lake had white peak waves (VERY choppy!) The guy was in a kayak and going nowhere, so we had him on aboard, he's from Montreal, I think he was amazed with all of the kids we had!

Sophie on the tube!

White men CAN jump!

L-R: Eric, Cassie, Porter, Bowen, Fred, Sean, Sarah, Meg, Mark, Maxwell, Sophie, Sydney, Elisa

We had a GREAT time and Fred still has a job so I guess we behaved!

WOW I haven't blogged in forever, I guess since my "bad" week. Life is on the upturn and I have a wonderful husband who LOVES me and children who "tolerate" their crazy mother. I'm halfway done with last semester of Pre-requisites and will submit my application for NAU's Dental Hygiene program by Feb. 1, 2010. (Keep me in your prayers that the committee will like my application and accept me!) I will post more when I have the time, just felt like I had to move on from despair and appreciate how LUCKY I am to be alive and have such wonderful supportive people in my life!

PS-My hoodie says LUCKY so I thought that to be an appropriate title for this blog. Not that I just wanted ya'll to look at a wonderful picture of Elisa standing at the top of Lombard street!
