An End of Summer Lake Trip

We said goodbye to summer in the best way possible- out in the middle of nowhere on a boat! It was a great few days spent on the Arizona/Utah border on Lake Powell. Lots of swimming, eating great food, and good, quality family time. Henry preferred to be in the water as much possible, and from sun up to sun down he was splashing around. Charlie had a great time too, minus some rough moments with teething. The worst. But overall it was a great time- very relaxing and outside of getting no sleep because of those pesky teeth, we did pretty okay. ;)

I feel so grateful to have had this time with my family- those days in that warm sunshine and cool lake water will surely carry us into the fall days that are already on their way. It was also so special to be here with Charlie, because the last lake trip we took I was pregnant. Full circle, for sure.

Happy end of summer, friends! xoxo


  1. Aww we used to go there all the time when I was in elementary school. Going to the lake is always so fun :) Teething, however, is not. Eek!

  2. We've been having our rough share of teething here too, and it is heart breaking when they're in the thick of it :( At least little Charlie was surrounded by the outdoors & his family to soften the teething blow. Sounds like you guys had a wonderful time making sweet family memories!
