Lake Powell...finally!

The kids & I were invited by friends of ours to join their family for a trip to Lake Powell this past weekend. The time away was much needed! It was our first time there. (Hopefully Mike will be able to join us next time!) What a sweet family they have, even inviting us to stay in the home of relatives. It was a such a pleasure spending time with them & getting to know more about them & their family. We all had a great time at Lake Powell. It was so fun to see Annie's reactions to her first time in water that wasn't a sink or bathtub. She was apprehensive at first, but eventually really liked it. The boys were thrilled near the end of the time at the lake when 2 mallard ducks came to join us. The next day we took a tour of the Glen Canyon dam. What an amazing feat of engineering! Since I took so many pictures, I have only included a couple here along with a link to the rest if you are interested.

Brigham trip June 2010

Behind yet again. Amazing how crazy life gets. Here is a little re-cap of the last couple weeks.

At the beginning of June, I went with the kids to visit my fam in Brigham. I finally had a much lighter work load to take along. It was wonderful to be able to just enjoy time with family & friends. Unfortunately, once again Mike was unable to come with us since we are saving his days off for December to go visit his family. Hopefully someday we will all be able to travel together more often. I do appreciate that he lets us go, and misses us while we are gone as we do him.

Here is our beloved B on the mountain & the view from my parent's house. I miss that place!

Grandma & Grandpa had a fun weekend planned for the boys. We rode the Frontrunner train to Salt Lake & then the Trax train around town. We went to lunch, visited the planetarium, did a little shopping, and hopped back on the train for the ride back. The kids loved it!

I took the kids, my brother Brian & a good friend of mine from high school to visit the Bird Refuge & Peach City. Most of the refuge was closed, but we got a few pictures in. Our goal this year is to visit some of the "basic" tourist spots in Utah that we have never been to.

Another night we were able to visit with a few friends in Roy. We did a little shopping & went to dinner. It was great to see them all again. (Missed pics on that leg of the trip)

Another highlight of our trip was cooking hot dogs & smores over the fire pit with some other friends.
