Roadtrip, Part 10, wherein we explore by boat...

So, we survived our “short cut,” and arrived at our glorious destination:  Lake Powell.  We rented a “power” boat (“power” written in quotes, because there was very little power in this particular powerboat.  My little dream of waterskiing on Lake Powell quickly became a pipedream for this particular trip; cue the sad violin, please).  IMG_4907orange county family lifestyle

Luckily the boat worked well enough for the Dudes to thoroughly enjoy themselves … and to become brave enough to perform multiple “tricks” [grin].

Those gorgeous thunder clouds you see in the picture above were kind enough to hold back their deluge til we returned the boat and checked into our motel. And that little deluge made for a spectacular sunset scene. More Lake Powell to come. At the rate I'm posting these vacation pics, the boys will all have graduated by the time I finish. Note to self: take fewer pics next vacation.

Btw, for anyone interested: all the pictures in this post were edited in Lightroom using One Willow's newest presets. Specifically, I used Imagination, Harmony & Film Newspaper from The Beautiful Things Collection.

NO! Don't take fewer vacation pics! I feel so much better knowing I'm not the only one. What an awesome lake--so picturesque!

Oh no! A power boat without the power. I can not believe this happened on the Keller's outrageous family adventures : (.

I am laughing about the boys graduating before you finish vacation pictures. So funny.
