Lake Powell

Our week at Lake Powell was so much fun! Highlights include:

  • No kids = much needed relaxation
  • Reading both the Hunger Games & Catching Fire within the first 4 days, LOVED them!
  • Dance parties on the back of the house party, the Milne girls have got moves.
  • Playing cards again and again and again.
  • THE FOOD! One thing is for sure, we eat well at Lake Powell!
  • Late night movie time. Word of caution: don't put on the subtitles during the pow-wow scene in "The Proposal." Bad.
  • Jarem getting bit on the nipple by a fish, no joke.
  • Spending a week with my favorite person in the world (Nate) & his amazing family, some of my best friends! What a blast!!!!

Sexiest thing in this picture? Nate's feet. :)

There are things worth driving 16 hours in a car with 3 children. Washington, my family. The Wilsons know how to have fun and lots of it.

First we went to my 10 year high school reunion. It was..... interesting. Well, I loved seeing Kirsten, it's been way too long.

We spent a day at Lake Tapp's boating. What a beautiful lake!
This scene brings back some fond memories of my dad carrying all 5 of us kids to bed just like this. I tried to hop on too, but my dad said I'm too big, can you believe the nerve?

A day at Ocean Shores. It was a little chilly, but we had tons of fun flying kites on the beach.

My mom's friend Julie was so kind to invite us all over to let the kids ride her horse. They had so much fun!

A couple of days at the beach close by my parent's house.

A day at the Seattle Children's Museum with my mom.
I always get emotional leaving my family, and this time was no exception. I love my parents so much, they are amazing parents & grandparents!
