Alright, it's time to play a little catch up. It's been an awesome summer, and we just haven't had time to tell everyone about all the fun things we've been doing. That's why I love summer so much.
June 28th to July 3rd we were priveleged enough to go to Lake Powell with the Heiners. They have a share on the Milky Way, and it's ALWAYS a party.

We found a sandy beach inside a cove close to Bullfrog bay. That's pretty lucky, especially around the 4th of July. It worked out good thought because we had alot of people coming throughout the week, so boating to the Marina to pick them up wasn't too bad.

This is the mock-up of the Lake Powell temple. Look for it to be announced this next General Conference.

Of course there was lots of tubing. Lots and lots of tubing.....

This is Christian (Daniels husband) showing of his mad skills.

It's weird being the grown ups now that wake up at the crack of dawn to catch the nice water. I used to think all the older siblings and cousins were crazy for waking up so early to get wet.

As you can see, not much action on the houseboat as we left each morning.

Jason (Brittanys husband) was the skier. He won't let himself get old.

Liesel is turning into quite the little wakeboarder. She's one of those people that can do just about anything she tries.

We were camped close enough to hike to this sweet little cliff jumping spot. It was cool cause there was cliffs of all sizes, and you could do whatever you were comfortable with.

The kids were actually pretty daring. Once one did it, they all had to. Couldn't be outdone of course.

This isn't the glassiest water ever, but I'd say it was pretty sweet for bullfrog bay in the middle of July. This was the advantage of the early morning runs.

Blake catching some air.

Early is early no matter what you're doing, but it was always worth the wake-up.

Nose grab by yours truely

The riders weren't the only ones that got to enjoy waking up early. You have to love Lake Powells breath taking views.

Thanks to the Heiners for letting us crash their party.


  1. Thanks to Grandpa Duane Steele......the love goes on......and on..... and on.....

  2. Before I die I want to try waterskiing. Just once is all I ask. Lies is a born athlete.
