Lake Powell

I will occasionally view blogs of my friends and see that they are "following" this blog and I am so embarrassed that we haven't posted in 10 months that I decided it is about time. So, I thought I would share my Lake Powell trip with everyone just so I didn't have to look at how long it has been since either one of us decided to post something.

My lovely roommate invited all the rest of us roommates to my favorite place on earth this summer for a much needed break from reality. I had a wonderful time, and here is the proof.

We randomly found this giant piece of Styrofoam out in the Lake and decided to tow it back to the houseboat and play on it for days. Who knew that something so simple could cause us so much joy. We decided to use it like a giant log and see if we could roll it and stay on...

Needless to say, it was unsuccessful, but extremely fun. We also had a little something that we like to call pleasure island and it looked a little like this.
Whoever came up with this idea is a genius because we just floated around without a care in the world... until we realized we were floating further and further away from the houseboat and I had to jump out and tow us back, luckily I'm like a mermaid. No Problem.

When we weren't playing behind the houseboat, we were being towed by a boat in this fashion.
You don't need to tell me how attractive I look, I'm very aware. If you liked this picture, I can't wait to show you the next one. Please carefully note the expression on my face, have you ever seen someone having that good of a time?
The trip would not be complete without a little of this. We had to do it at least once.
I know I look like an idiot, it's fine.

All in all it was a wonderful vacation and I can't wait to get a houseboat with Richard and then both of our families can vacation there together.

I love you Lake Powell.
