HELLO ALL!!! I missed you so much!! For some reason the pictures in the previous three posts did not work but don’t worry I fixed that first thing when we got home (even before showering, wiping the dust off of me so that it wouldn’t get all over the couch or brushing my teeth for the first time in who knows how long……that is how you know I love you).
We ended up coming home a day early because mother nature got fiesty.
This photo was pre-sand blowing EVERYWHERE at 90 mph. I even got a bloody nose from breathing in so much sand. There was no escaping it. We even built our own bomb shelter but that didn’t do a thing. At about 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning we crawled into our Neighbors truck (they had an RV and were sleeping in there) and slept through the storm. Sunday night was supposed to be even worse so we came home early.
That’s okay though because I don’t think it is humanly possible for humans to have any more fun that we had so I guess we were meant to go home early.
Sorry, for the lame iphone pics but we decided that it would probably be a good idea to put the DSLR away because the sand was getting in every nook and craney.
Let’s talk about the highlights of the trip.
No, this is not a picture of a homeless bald 8 year old that we picked up along the way, this is just me enjoying the sunshine, water and wind blowing in my face on our neighbors speed boat.
And another one, just for good measures. I think I won the world record for the most hair horns at one time.
For lunch yesterday our neighbors took us to an awesome restaurant that took about an hour on a boat to get to……did I mention that Lake Powell is the most ginormous lake you will ever see.
We (including the BIL and SIL) actually ended up hanging out with our neighbors more than the group that we came with because A. they were awesomesauce and quite hilarious. B. they had the coolest toys and loved sharing them with us poor Provians. C. I don’t know, but they were just really fun. D. We really didn’t know the group we came with so it was no big deal.
I may see future meeting up at Powell with our ‘neighbors’ in the future.
I got a chicken sandwich with sauted mushrooms and guac (under the chicken). It sounds like a weird combo but it was heavenly. I couldn’t pass up the french fries. When your mind and body both say yes, than you must go for it.
Another highlight from the trip (besides Billy’s sexy sandy toes) was that he tried selling me the rock collection that he put together while in the sand. I fell for it and gave him ten bucks, he told me that in twenty years they will be worth at least 100 grand. Just trying to make good investments.
Third highlight, (Don’t worry he thinks it’s funny to) Billy was using the last of the spray on sunscreen and didn’t notice that it was just spraying out little blops of suncreen resulting in sweet sunburn circles on his side. Unconditional love.
Today will be spent getting the sand out of my ear lobes, 54 loads of laundry and some time with the mamacita. Hope you are having an amazing Memorial Day!!!
Any fun tan line/sunscreen mishaps or stories?
-When I was 8 I took the sunscreen and just put my hands directly on my face and didn’t rub it in, resulting in two handprints on my cheeks.
What is the craziest mother nature situation you have ever been in?
-The sand storm of Powell 2011. It was crazy….the sand pelted you, I couldn’t even walk in the direction of the wind and it wouldn’t stop for HOURS!!
What are your Memorial Day plans!??!?!
-Besides the above mentioned items we are going to roast our s’mores that we never had a chance to do while in Powell. I love that that is going to be the highlight of my day.
