BOAT Tales!

Many of you have heard of our boat woes!  We decided that it would be almost cheaper($1500 more) to buy an older boat than to rent one at Lake Powell for a week.  Well so begins our saga!  We took it out the first time in May, the kids actually got into the freezing water, and it would not go into reverse.  
$1800 later we got it back the last week of June...  This is one of the few pictures that we took BEFORE WE WERE TOWED TO THE DOCK!!!
Sadly, the mechanic had forgotten to put oil back into the work he had just done and it chewed up the same gears again!!!
These pictures were taken on Monday after we got it back and took it for a test drive @ Utah Lake!   It was very windy... and it wasn't too bad... until we had to stop and do some adjustments.  THEN WE WERE ALL SEA SICK!!!  Hopefully we will get more use this summer!  The hour and a half that we have actually used the boat we TERRIFIC!

I know it doesn't LOOK very chopy... this is in the bay!!!

Day Camp

I have been very terrible @ blogging lately.. and I am going to try and catch up a little in the next few days!  This is our Webelos Day camp that we went to July 2nd!  It ended up being Cooper, Talen, Ben & I.  I forgot to make sure the boys each had their release forms from their parents... but thankfully they still let us stay!
Cooper & Talen with the wrist rockets!
Ben got to help the boys at the B B gun range!
This is after the canoe ride!  I am sooo glad that there were enough leaders that I didn't have to go and get drenched along with the others!
It must have been a fun day, because both of the boys were tuckered out! 
(I couldn't get a picture of Ben nodding off in the front seat!)

Megan's New Do!

My sister Krista is a Fabulous hair dresser!  She really has a gift!  It makes it worth the 3 hour round trip (not including the haircuts) to go have her cut our hair!

Every YEAR Megan gets tired of her long flowing locks and decides to chop off 6 to 10 inches!
And Whalaaa  Megan has her new hairdo!
