Flippin Sweet...

So we got back from our Lake Powell trip late Saturday night- and without a doubt, that trip was one of the best vacations I've ever had. We dropped Madden off at my Aunt Jolene's late Tuesday night. We thought for a long time about bringing him but decided that it would probably be more fun for him, and us, if we just let him hang out with cousins while we were gone.
My whole family was able to go- with the exception of my sister Jesse's husband Alvin- he couldn't miss his police academy training. And this whole trip was made possible because we were invited by the Fish family from joseph city. It's funny how alike our two families are- we like the same things and all of us kids are close to the same age. But ya... the trip was so much fun... each day we wakeboarded, played cards, played on the jet ski's, and just enjoyed each other's company!
Here are some pictures from the trip!
This is the house boat we stayed on. The slide on the back was a lot of fun.

Here is 'Captain Ron'- driving the wakeboard boat:

My two beautiful sisters... and my husband who thinks he is a gangsta:

Me and my sisters after we tried to throw each other off the water trampoline:

Me and David getting ready to go boarding:

Check out my man... what a stud!

Here is Chace- he was freakin awesome for having just learned to board:

Then there is Tara- I'm pretty jealous of her mad skills. I have yet to find something this girl isn't good at:

And this is the cutest thing ever- little Tatum tearing it up! This girl is so adorable.

Me and David just relaxin:

I love my mom and dad!

Kim and Chace:

Jesse and Maryssa:

This is Melese and her husband Chade:

Here's Tara and her husband Nate. (nate if you read this... you need to stop being so uptight). =)

Casey and his wife Debbie. This picture pretty much shows his personlity. He's hilarious:

On Friday night we did a 'variety show'. It consisted of: going to heaven on a table (which was hilarious), Dueling wooden spoons (also hilarious), a few jokes and magic tricks, a little skit by my dad, a couple guitar solos and a spiritual story.
Here is 'Pirate Ron' doing his skit:

Casey and Shelby doing the dueling wooden spoons:

These two were the life of the party:

Overall it was such an awesome trip. I'm so grateful to the Fish's who invited us to go with them! And Lake Powell is so beautiful. I definitely hope that won't be my last trip there.
