Labor Day at Lake Powell

My parents have a time share in a houseboat on Lake Powell. We joined most of my family and some cousins there over Labor Day weekend. The weather was perfect and the lake was beautiful. We had a blast. 

Cute Kate. She did not like her sunglasses, the sand, the sunscreen, or the cold water, so this was the only time we dressed her up and tried taking her for a swim.

We had lots of surfing/boating/jet skiing fun. Here's Steve in the water.

My cousins brought their crazy husbands. Above is Stacia up on Ricky's shoulders. 

Since that went so well, Ricky and Luke decided to try it. They didn't give up easily, but it didn't happen. I guess the surf board and physics decided 400 lbs and a wonky center of gravity was a no-go.

 We had some pretty crazy weather while we were there, but for the most part, we had beautiful blue skies with puffy white clouds.

On our way to Lake Powell, there was the most beautiful double rainbow arcing across the entire sky. This rainbow occurred a couple days later; we admired it from our houseboat. 

We had a fantastic time! Thanks, Mom and Dad!
