Lake Powell

Braxton & I got to go meet Melissa & Ty and his family for a fun filled week of Lake Powell. I only have some of the pics from my camera...still awaiting pics form others cameras.

So Melissa sends me a text Monday morning ....she says we should come over and meet her at Powell! Who can resist Lake Powell? Definitely not me!! Since a day's notice isn't enough to take time off work Josh couldn't come but he was kind enough to tell us to go anyway.
Tuesday we headed to Lone Rock campground. It's about 2 hrs from LaVerkin. Braxton was good and slept most the time, because of some delays in leaving my plan to drive during nap time was foiled. But he did sleep until he decided it was time to eat, so I stopped in Kanab and nursed him in the grocery store parking lot :) When we got back on the road he decided to scream for 20 minutes or so. We arrived safely!

We ate lunch and Braxton got his first sand experience! As you can see he headed straight for that new stuff, right under the lawn chair.

Digging his hands right in, no reserves. I guess this means he's not afraid to get dirty---ALL BOY---
After lunch we got swimsuits on and headed out for a run in the boat. Here is Braxton in his cute life jacket, he wasn't so sure about the contraption that he couldn't crawl around in! Ty's niece McKaela took a liking to Braxton she was constantly playing with him! She was an awesome helper! This is her teaching Braxton how to properly play in the sand!Ty's nephew Kayden was also quite the fan. He thought that Braxton should cover himself in the sand! Braxton agreed that that was a good idea! Ty's mom Karen had brought glow sticks for us to play with at night.....little bug got to play with some because he woke up--he was fascinated he tried to eat all the different colors. This is the crazy sand castle that Melissa, McKaela and I built. It took forever.
Braxton loved to play in the lake, he would sit and splash in the water! He found the boat rides to be very relaxing and would fall asleep in mom's arms. We had a wonderful time, I'll post more as I get more pics!
