lake powell 2013

we've been on the road again. this week we travelled south to lake powell for a long awaited trip with my family and the cox's. we stayed on their houseboat "blue mooners" and had so much fun playing in the water and showing emery a good time. she loves the sand and thinks its pretty great to splash in the water all day. she travelled really well again, which i'm so grateful for. the weather was hot hot HOT, and she managed to still nap and sleep well.

my mom made spaghetti for dinner one night and we let emery join in. we're yet to find any food that she doesn't like, but spaghetti was a pretty big hit! we had noodles & sauce galore! in case there was any doubt if she is my baby, the proof is in the spaghetti.

the whole you-have-to-wear-a-life-vest-while-on-the-boat thing was hard. it was hot and the vest was an incubator for more heat. its so thick! once the boat started moving emery was fine, but it was a screamfest until then. hopefully next year she doesn't need a vest with a neck flap, and then i think she'll do better.

a big thanks to my parents & cox's for a great time! this has been a fave vacation since i was little, and its so fun to now take emery and let her experience the fun.
