Lake Powell 2010

What a great way to start our summer. We had a blast on our trip to Lake Powell. The only change I would make is to make it longer. We have been anticipating this trip since January and now its over and we have wonderful memories. We hope that this will be an annual Dahl family trip. Here are some pictures from our trip. Unfortunately, I dropped my camera half way through our trip so I didn't get some really great pictures like Micah and Payton waterskiing. Boo hoo! But here is what I got...


This was our houseboat in the first spot we stayed at. We moved to another spot with a beach a couple of days later which was so nice. The kids played and we roasted smores and had a fire.

Jared and I took a hike up the clifts and had such a great view as you can see. The cousins minus Tyson and Avery the babies. We had eight kids all together. Lots of little ones.

So glad we had Aunt Tessa to plan and bring lots of activities for the kids to keep them busy. Here are some of the girls decorating their treasure boxes they found out in the rocks. The were pirates the whole time and every day they had about two clues that led them to another activity. The did necklace making, tye dyeing t-shirts and a bunch of other fun stuff that I can't remember at the moment. It was a great way to keep them busy.

Tyson did have a bathing suit on most of the time and then most of the time he was in just a diaper. Grandpa kept putting sand on the boat to occupy him because he is a maniac.

The boys fishing with daddy. They both caught something.

The picture of Micah was the first try and he fell down right away. We tried it the next day and he stayed up and Payton also got up and went for awhile but my camera was broken by then. Julian went both days. My future water skiers. I didn't get Jared wake boarding or wake skating because most of the time I wasn't on the boat. I should have had someone take a picture of me wake boarding to prove that I acutally did. It was so much fun! Can't wait to go again...
