The George family takes a vacation to Lake Powell every summer. This was my first time on the trip and I was introduced to long standing traditions. I added a few of my own and we had the most amazing trip. Some of the traditions include: a midnight dip in the lake, catching lizards or mice (gross), braiding hair, just dance competitions and parties, sleeping on the top deck under the stars, eating lots of candy, etc.
First things first. A Seadoo ride to make yourself familiar with the area. There are some sweet coves.Next is a leisurely surf ride behind the boat. SURFS UP RICHARD! kick it up a notch with some heavyweights blob action.
Take a jump off the top of the house boat. (If 4 year old Cora can do it… So can you!)
Take all the grandkids to cheer on Uncle Freddy (chris) as he wake boards
Throw Mimi in to the Lake
