Lake Mead Love

This morning Leah, Davis, me, Jordan, Rod, Tyson, Bobbi and Alivia all made an early morning trek out to Lake Mead. It was fantastic! The kids collected seashells, we saw lizards, we wakeboarded, we tubed and overall had a great time :) And we did it all before 11am!

And this is my thanks to Jordan, who was there when Leah needed a security blanket to even just get in the big scary boat! Thanks a bunch:)

I will also be nursing my wakeboarding injury for some time since I'm not as good as I once was and the board attacked my arm during a fall...it was worth it though :)

It was a gorgeous day at the lake!!

Picture this: Davis is outside the bathroom smushing a black-widow with his shoe (the spider was already dead btw).
Mom: Davis don't keep stepping on that spider, it's dead.
Davis: Yeah Mom, but I want to make it deader.

I'm so jealous that I'm speechless.

We love going to the lake. We try to go every Thursday night. It isn't as hot and we're back by 10 PM. Wyatt asks to go to the lake every day!

I'm surprised you didn't comment on your dad's AMAZING floating skills! They left me speechless!

Good to know I looked cool :) Thanks.

I'm so impressed you go so often! My kids would love to go and just collect seashells but they're kinda cranky in the evenings aka we don't go anywhere :)

The lake is one thing we haven't done in a long time. Basically because we don't have a boat or jet skis or anything cool to go out on! I guess there's always Boulder Beach. It's been so long since we've been there-does that beach still exsit? Looks like you guys had a ton of fun. Can't wait to hear Leah tell all about it in Primary! (It's okay she doesn't just talk without me asking. We always have a "what did you do last week" session before we start class.) Love the pictures!

That's the perfect lake trip. We tend to spend the entire day...which leaves us a little overdone!
