Sophie, Jessie, Will, and Easton riding up top on the houseboat while we were cruising for a beach.
Nixon and Wade getting ready for a swim (brr)
We hiked to the top of these Indian Ruins. We're so high up in this picture! It was so cool!
Sara might turn into a wake boarder after all. She had a great time and got better everyday!
Easton was so happy to zip around on the knee board!
I wanted to put one of the pictures of Geoffrey crashing, but in the spirit of love we've built on our vacation, here's one of him not crashing!
And the last, sad part of the story:
This is Nixon laying at the bottom of a cliff our first full day there. The big rock on the right? That's what broke his fall - on his elbow. It was pretty scary. It took awhile to get him out of the canyon where we were hiking in, then we boated over to the Bullfrog Marina medical clinic. I thought for sure they would x-ray it and say it was fine. Well, it turns out, there is no x-ray machine at Lake Powell. We had to drive 3 hours to PRICE! Of course, I was wearing a bathing suit and capri's and a sweatshirt! He did break his arm right above the elbow. We'll know Wednesday if he will need surgery or not (the break is close to his growth plate). After we left the ER, we stopped at Wal-Mart in Price and bought a toothbrush, toothpaste, sweats for Nixon to sleep in, and pain killers for him. By the time we got back to Powell, it was 2am. We stayed in Defiance Lodge at the Marina and resumed the vacation in the morning. Poor buddy, no water sports for him, and he was feeling some pain. He was a trooper though, and we all made the best of it.
hmm...I need to end this now, as I have NO plan yet for Easter dinner or treats. I guess I have some shopping to do.
Well, again, thanks to the AWESOME families we went with - it was a GREAT time. I guess we're on the path to being a boat family now - We really do LOVE the LAKE!
