There are moments on vacation where you stop everything to savor it, "Okay this very second made it all worthwhile." For our Lake Powell trip this was the defining moment--on the front of the boat, wind in her hair occasionally calling out, "I'm flying!" Not a care in the world.
Oh, man I bottled up this fleeting feeling and will occasionally open it up on those not-so-great days to live it all over again.
As often as I could, I would follow Q-ey around and just do whatever in the world she wanted to do. This was one of the main reasons I was looking forward to this trip. No distractions, no let-me-just-finish-the-dishes-then-we'll-play. It was all about just being together. I needed that. She needed that.
My tried and tested hypothesis remains true: You can tell how much fun by how ratted her curls are. As you can see lots of fun going on here.
Hiding under a floppy hat. It was awesome when I was holding Lola because that hat is ginormous and could block the sun from her too. Ha!
She had her own floppy hat, of course. Not only is this a cool camera angle it's also the best way to drop drool bombs on mom while dad snaps a photo. Good thing momma doesn't mind one bit.
Heck, I'm usually the one drooling over her. ;)
Collin was definitely in his element there! Sure, he can't pull his wakeboard tricks like he used to: An Air Raley, Hoochie Glide, Bee Sting, to an Oh Really, Batwing but he can drive our Honda Pilot like you wouldn't believe. ;) The boys in our group had fun showing off for the Go Pro camera. It attaches to the end of your board then you can watch yourself get "sick air" ;) or eat it. haha. But, really, we need that camera. Since I already brought 4 cameras on my trip why not an uneven 5?
Meet Annie. My darling, talented neighbor who is also hilarious... she invited us to their house boat with 2 other families... and clearly we had a blast!
I'm sure you will see more of her in the future since, she can sew circles around me, she is going to take me under her stylish wing and we are going to work on some summer sewing projects.
