With the Miles clan we get to go to Lake Powell in May and August every summer. I love it because they are very different trips. In May, we pretty much have the lake to ourselves, but the water is freezing so I always have to give myself a little pep talk to get in the water. In August, however, the water is warm and I am constantly getting in just to cool off from the hot sun. We had a great August trip, but we did get a few of our typical May thunderstorms.
I love how Mikey got his little plastic shovel and went out to help the guys did holes for our anchors. Always the helper.
I loved how every time I tried to get a picture, they would smile for two seconds before more mud was thrown.
Karen & I had this brilliant idea to try double surfing with the two of us. We figured that if we could get up with a little kid on the board with us then we should be able to get up with two adults too... it only worked in theory, but we had a great time failing.
We divide up our meals on vacation. This was mine & Karen's dinner that I think has been one of our best so far. We grilled everything. There was steak & chicken (marinated in my mom's best marinade), grilled pineapple, asparagus, salad, & homemade regular & sweet potato fries with ultimate dipping sauce. Followed up with homemade snicker doodles & chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
Mikey was a little shy with the water at first, but by the end of the trip, we couldn't keep him out. He thought running through the water was really fun.
