Lake Powell


John and I had the opportunity to go away to Lake Powell this weekend with 3 other couples and NO KIDS! It was such a blast! We stayed on a beautiful house boat that had 4 bedrooms! House boats are SO cool! I never really got why everyone thought Lake Powell was so great but now I get it! Besides being huge the little canyons you can go exploring in your boat are awesome. Our view looked like this:


On Friday afternoon the most wild storm came in right as John and I got there and so we relaxed and watched a movie while the storm blew over. When it did we drove in the boat to dinner. You know life is good when you can drive your boat to dinner! It was super yummy food at a beautiful marina.



The next morning we slept in and then loaded up in the boat at 11:00 and didn't come home until 8:00 that night. We went up the lake about 40 miles to see Rainbow bridge.



It was spectacular! As you can imagine there was a whole lot of this happening!



Thankfully only a little of this :)


Poor John can hardly move today but it was so worth it! He cleared the wake on a wake board for the first time and he was in heaven to be surfing again! As we headed back to the house boat we had another storm move in and it was amazing to watch the way the water ran over and shone on the rocks.


Thankfully it was very brief! At one point we had the moon rising on one side of the lake while there was an  amazing sunset on the other side!


It was one of the best weekends Ive had in along time. Good friends, good music, good food, beautiful scenery, being on the water, and most of all hanging out with my John. Its was so fun to go out and relax and enjoy spending time doing nothing together.


He is truly my best friend and I think he is one of the most fun people to spend time with. I dont know how I got so lucky!

Oh vactaion I will miss you!


Please come back soon!

Fun! One of my friends said that Lake Powell is almost better than Disneyland! I don't know about that,
