It's been HOT! On Friday and Sat, swimming wasn't enough to find relief from this heat!

So I remembered about the Root Beer stand at Vivian Park, and it has always looked sooo refreshing and delicious, and it sounded so good! So I drove my nephews and I up there!

Soooooo hit the spot!

As for me, I wanted to drink out of the top!

Liquid Paradise!

What is it exactly, that makes Lake Powell Paradise? I'll tell you! Better yet show you!
Even Brett, who has crutches, and a cast, couldn't resist! There are no exceptions why someone shouldn't come!

Wake boarding! This is me, so much fun!

Bracken surfing

Ah the tube! I felt like a punching bag! Yet we were laughing our brains out! Not funny to get that hurt!

Hanging on for dear life!

Out of the 600 pictures we took there, this one is my favorite! Every time I look at Bracken's legs I die laughing!! (he's in the middle)

Trav going down the slide they built! And landing in like 2 inches of water!

While testing out the slide, Cory slid off the slide into the tree. Just making sure we got all the kinks out;)

Again, couldn't resist being in on the fun!

See why I love this face?;p

Britt showing everyone up! Girl power!
The sunsets are breathtaking! There's nothing, I'd rather do than be in Powell with great company, great food, great weather, being out in the sun and on the boat, hiking, swimming, cruising, games, music, no cell phone, forgetting about life and worries! My favorite memories are here! Glad we can keep making more!

Lake Mead

Last April, my brother Aaron and his family moved to Henderson, NV. My other brother Curtis and his family live in Vegas and we thought it'd be fun to take an early boating trip to Lake Mead and visit family! So we headed down, in the first part of May. Andrew and Melissa came with us! We took a boat ride over to Hoover Dam. The weather was so nice, it was so fun to sit and enjoy the scenery!

Andrew and Kate

We found some ducks, and thought it'd be fun to feed them. We found out they don't like EZ cheese! Then we left and went on a drive, about 5 or 6 miles away. We stopped to hang out again, and after a while, guess who showed up? That's right! The ducks! They had found us! We were so happy and stunned, so we feed them some more!

Andrew and Melissa

Don't worry! We made sure to stop at the Green Valley Buffet! Oh it was the best! I love to get one of everything and taste them all!
