Lake Powell 2008

Well summer is officially over! We just finished up our annual Lake Powell trip with Keith and Fawna. Everyone had a blast. Weather was great, it started storming the day we left, so we timed it just right. We did plenty of knee-boarding, wake-boarding, tubing, etc. We all came home a little tanner than we left, and with a few more bumps and bruises from playing too hard. Tristyn's favorite was the knee board, she did awesome getting up on her first try(with a little help from uncle Tyler). Ty loved the tube and just being in the water (as long as he didn't have to jump in). We were even able to get to the infamous sand hill again this year (nobody passed out this time). We're already looking forward to next year, as this is one of our favorite things to do. We are so grateful that Uncle Keith and Aunt Fawna make this possible for all of us, they go to a lot of work and expense to make sure we all have fun, and we can't thank them enough.

The kids loved the tube!

Our little champion

In the spirit of the olympic games I have to show off our little champion. This last May Tristyn competed in a national clogging competition where she won grand champion in a duet with her teacher Candace. She made us so proud! She was competing against people twice her age, and clogged her little heart out. Just seeing my little girl up there against all those big people brought tears to my eyes. Tracey works so hard with her to make her the best she can be, and it's moments like this that make it all worth it.
