...five thousand words







UPDATE (9/24):

people are asking questions/want details, so i guess i can't get away with just pictures. part of the reason i tried (to get away with just pictures) is because it wasn't the most fun trip i've ever been on. all the other married people on the trip had their spouses with them (steve and nash stayed home). so i had two options: third wheel the marrieds or hang out with the single guys. both awkward at times. but you can't beat the scenery-amazing. we put in at antelope point (five star, i tell ya!). it was full service from the time we pulled up in our trucks to the point where we drove out of the parking lot. the houseboats (we had two) were p.i.m.p. and i scored my own room which was a really great perk to keep me out of even more awkward situations. plus i get really grumpy when i don't get sleep and then have to hang out with people i barely know!

i was helping out with all the meals, so a lot of time was spent cooking and cleaning, but i did manage to do a little jet-skiing and boating/wakeboarding. i should say i tried to do a little wakeboarding. i was not blessed with coordination, i'll tell you that much. i managed to get up but then i was like a wet noodle. so embarrassing, but it was fun nonetheless. the best part: coming home to nash (steve surprised me by putting him in a cute outfit for once and styling his hair into a cute lil fauxhawk). And of course there was stevie bevie, who, after hanging around a bunch of inbred technicians who i swear were trying to mentally undress me was like a godsend (and i could feel comfortable knowing that at least he is allowed to try to picture me with my clothes off).

I think Powell is probably the coolest place in Utah, hands down...and that's saying something since we have places like Goblin Valley and Zions. Those pictures made me salivate and yearn to return. Where'd you put in? Bullfrog or Wahweap? Did you camp or did you have a houseboat? Man, I miss that place...

Dude - I didn't know that you went without your husband! Sad. You'll have to take him next time, but I'm sure you already knew that. Oh, I also tried wakeboarding with very little success. Try wakesurfing - way easier and tons more fun, says me!

How beautiful! I am jealous as I haven't been to Lake Powell since the trip we went on right after bevie got home from his mish. I love it there. Sorry you couldn't enjoy it with your hubbie but at least you got a vacation from your cute boy.
