Gone with the Wads

This summer we got to spend time at the cabin, and in Lake Powell with the Wads Squad. 
We went on a hike to the meadow and built a fire for lunch.  Kip whipped out the guns and we set up some plastic cups to shoot at. Ann smoked us all, of course. 
We rode the Razors around the trails, and spent time watching a movie together.
Ralph used a hand grinder to make his own wheat, and then we used an old washer lid to cook the pancakes on.  Yummy!
It was a little chilly outside, but we had a good time. It is always nice to get away and be up there in the wilderness.

We then went to Lake Powell and stayed on a houseboat with the Relyea and Scharman family.  They have a very nice houseboat, and all the adults got to stay in their own rooms. There were 8 little girls on that boat, plus another family that we didn't know with 3 little boys. The girls loved to make up dances to blaring music up on the second floor. We were definitely sick of a few songs that had been overplayed by the time we left! Haha.
Every family took turns making meals, and it was fun to sit around and talk with everyone.  There is a lot to learn from all of those couples, including Kade's parents. 
I love watching Kade wakeboard, and we got to do a lot of that.  The guys loved watching him throw his backflips. At one point one of the jet skis got stolen, but it returned on our last morning across from the bay that our house boat was docked in.  Half of the gas tank was gone--hope someone enjoyed the adventure! 
We took the little plane there, and on the way back I was able to sit up front with the pilot.  The view from above Lake Powell was pretty amazing! 
We can't wait to go again next year!
