Lake Powell 2012

Oh Lake Powell. How I love thee. 
It is one of my favorite places in the whole world. 
The water is not too cold, there is so much to do, and everything about it is beautiful!

We were excited to be able to make it to the annual Lake Powell trip with the Masons this year since we live closer. We met my parents, 2 sisters, one brother-in-law, and another family which all totals 12 people, 1 dog, 2 boats, 1 1/2 cabanas (after one sort-of blew away), 3 tents, a few sunburns, and a whole lot of fun.

That's our little camp on the beach!

                     Wes jumping the wake.                                                                         This is what we did every night to wind down :)

This was a crazy, little, short storm that passed through. We were trying to hurry to the marina to wait it out when we saw someone on a jet-ski waving for help. We turned around to find he had a severely handicapped person in the water and was unable to get him back on board. Without missing a beat, Wes jumped in to help (I was so proud) and we ended up having to load him on the boat because he was unable to get on the jet-ski without tipping it (which did happen). We took him to the dock, then the guy he was with jumped off his jet-ski without tying it up then looked at it with a questioned face as to why it was floating away! So again, Wes jumped in and rescued the jet-ski, but then the guy jumped in the water and met Wes half-way instead of having him take it to the dock... This guy was crazy and obviously didn't know what he was doing out there. But it all turned out and everyone lived! I didn't get pictures because we were busy saving lives.

This is called... are you ready for it? "Hole in the Rock" haha. It's pretty cool! You can drive in there and it's a little cave! The picture on the right is from inside looking out.

And of course, you can't leave Lake Powell without cliff-diving, and everyone found out how wimpy Lindsey is. See everyone else jumping from the top of the rock then see me not even half-way up? Yup, that's where I jumped. Wes was embarrassed that everyone knew what a chicken he is married to.

My sisters double wake-boarded. It was pretty sweet! And tubing is always a blast. Except I was a little wimpy again only because my poor nose was still a little tender from my surfing accident last month. Tubing has always been one of my favorite parts though :) You're never too old to get thrown around on a tube!

Pretty pics
