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.

What is it with floatation devices and sexual innuendos? Pleasure Island…. Horney the… (I can’t even remember what he was?)

I sure love you and love my memories of us at Lake Powell together.

girlfriend. so happy about this blog post you blogger! i have yet to go to lake powell ever in my entire lifetime but i can feel your love and everybody else's and therefore i love it too. loved all those pictures of you! except i feel like maybe you smacked your body against that cliff thing on that last one? maybe it is just the camera angle but i really don't see how you could have made it in to the water safely. and your commentary! i loved it. you need to come boating with us sometime. love you. bye.

"luckily I'm like a mermaid. No Problem." HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Love.

Also, never mind the fact that you do look rather silly on the cliff jumping picture, I was highly concerned that you were going to break your leg by landing on the rock before hitting the water. You must be a magical mermaid to have missed it. I am all the more impressed.
