How awesome was it that we got to go to bear lake and then the next week head to lake Powell and stay on a house boat for 4 days!!!!! Man it was awesome, what a great way for me to experience lake Powell for the first time!! The drive isn't my favorite, but it was a small price to pay for a week of awesomeness. The house boat was awesome, and a lot bigger than id thought it'd be, it had an awesome slide off the back too which was fun! The first night there we all slept inside, and honestly no one slept because it was SO hot!!!! So the second night we all brought our mattresses and bedding upstairs and slept on the top deck, man was that the best night sleep i had there! and ppl brought fireworks and they were honestly stadium of fire worthy fireworks they were awesome. we did that the last night but a huge thunder lightning storm decided to stop by at 2 in the morning, it wouldnt have been too bad but being in a cove the thunder bounced off the cliffs and made it 100 times louder, so we all ran downstairs and slept in the living room area. :)Me and Travis went with a family friend of his, the Willis family, kinda like an adopted family you could say. They had everything, the sports boat, tubes, wake boards, ski's, the one ski, and knee boards! it was a blast. they even rented a wave runner for everyone to play with! Ya i must say it was a pretty sweet vacation. I'd been boating before on different lakes, so I've tried tubing and TRIED wake boarding, not ever really succeeding. So this time i tried the knee boards and they were my favorite, because they weren't TOO hard that i couldn't do it, so i felt like i was accomplishing something when i was able to master getting up on my knees on them. :) But man i must say never have i gotten a better work out on my upper body then when i went tubing that week. Man were we all sore the next day. With the tubes we were having a war, Boys vs. Girls. there were 3 guys and 2 girls. While during this battle Travis leapfrogged from the middle position onto our tube and pulled me off the tube with him!!! it was so much fun. Oh we also went cliff jumping, another first for me!! that was scary i tell ya.Trav loved it he is an adrenaline junky for sure.then on the last day out there we went and saw Rainbow Bridge which was beautiful!! Here are a few pics i took, i didn't take much cuz hello we were at lake Powell surrounded by water. :) i have to tell ya though, even after being home for 3 days trav and i still feel like we're rocking on a boat. crazy.
