Lake Powell 2008...

we got home very late last night from Quinn's families annual Lake Powell trip.  we had so much fun & were sad to have to get back to ReAl LiFe!!!!  here are just a few of the highlights...

{becks & his cousin addison getting right into the water}

{as soon as we got settled- we got right onto the death tube}

{not much DeAtH going on here!}

{but still lots of FUN!}

{a little faster for these 2}

{becks & daddy loved going on the slide}

{becks & chi-chi were inseparable}

{the sunsets were BeAuTiFuL}

{avi loved the jet ski rides with daddy}

{we all got to see lots of avi's new smile}

{& hear tons of giggling with cousins}

{especially when daddy did SiLLy things like this!}

{tons of bright eyed smiles}

{becks, jaxson & wyatt on there way to Rainbow Bridge}

{everyone still smiling, even after a really long boat ride to get there}

{it was beautiful & totally worth it!}

{aunt markae was becks buddy}

{i never get sick of this smile!!!!}

{becks & jaxson still cheesing it!}

{and again... still not sick of it!}

{these 2 make each other laugh constantly}

{addie was a pro water skier}

{heather in the background cheering for jax- as he gets up on his very first try}

{there were falls...}

{but plenty of grins}

{a lot of showing off...}

{we had to take advantage of the skills & the sky-- Kaitlyn you're amazing!}

{while i still had the camera out from kaity, i caught the boys checking out a helicopter that was flying over... & i love this shot!}

{by the last morning the skies were not so clear}

{even thought it wasn't clear skied, it wouldn't be a true Lake Powell trip without a Lake Powell storm.}

Thanks Grandpa Mark for an amazing trip & more great family memories.  It was WoNdErFuL!!!

I'm so jealous! What a fun trip. I just love Lake Powell. We're coming next time, like it or not! So glad you are loving the Olympics like me. Yes, every four years! Bummer. But the winter ones will be in two years. Love all your pictures. And your Nauvoo trip looked amazing. I've never been there. How cool to learn and see all that history.

I love all the pictures you took. YOu're such a great photographer. I was wondering if you had a few minutes to email me to help me out with my header. I created a few in photoshop, but can't get any of them to upload onto my blog. I was hoping for a step by step from you so I can get them on my blog.
I know you're busy, but I'll cross my fingers you have a couple minutes to help me out.

Those look even better on your blog than they did in your camera! I love the one of KT's handstand. I wonder why you didn't put one of the FROGS on there?! It was a very fun trip. Especially because I was there.
