Lake Powell with the Ford Family

 This was my first time visiting Lake Powell, and I have to say the scenery is pretty awe inspiring. We stayed outside of Bullfrog (about 10 miles) in a mobile home, it was a little cramped, but the location was pretty great for four wheeling. We got the best of both worlds!

Four Wheeling! This boy is growing up to love four wheelers. He giggles and talks when he is on it and does what we call the happy dance. (whenever he is happy is does this funny little shifting of his body back and forth, pretty cute.)
Gibsons on their boat with Cadence and Molly hiding their faces. When do kids start hiding from cameras?

Pretty much wearing a life jacket sucks when you are a baby. Fin was not happy with this arrangement, but he dealt with it and even fell asleep in it a few times.

This was Fin's happy place, he screamed if we took him out of the water, even if he was shivering. He didn't even want to be in his float out deeper, he wanted to be splashing in the lake all by himself. Fin kept rushing straight into the lake until he was too deep and would face plant in the water, be rescued by an adult, and then do it all over again, he was never deterred by the mouth full of water.

Lake Powell is hot! So very hot, you have to be applying sunscreen almost every hour. Some were not so lucky to escape getting sunburned. Here Betty is taking a very proactive stance with the sunscreen. 

The Gibsons had these awesome plastic kayaks and Cadence and Molly loved paddling around in the little cove that we were camped at. Actually the Gibsons camped out on the beach every night and Cadence stayed with them, and stayed an extra two days.

Tubing! So much fun and apparently Cadence is quite the little daredevil (takes after her father that way). She was such an extreme tuber that she became kind of the trip joke what with her bathing suit bottoms flying off all the time. (unfortunately I did not get a picture of her bare bum swimming for her shorts.)

Pete, for some reason, loves to catch lizards and toads and such and here was one of his captives. This lizard was so fast, and had quite impressive markings. I had no idea lizards came in such varieties of colors.
