We spent the past week in Lake Powell for the Rasmussen family reunion.  Despite some windy conditions at the beginning of the week, we ended up having a great time.  The food was the tops, the games were non stop, the tube wars were competitive, the surf was always up, and the company was everything we could have hoped for and more.  We have an unusual amount of fun cousins, aunts, and uncles. 

Here are some highlights of the week:

Picturesque sunsets nightly

Xander is a one man show and kept us in stitches.  He has a way with words and could talk ANYONE into taking him out on the jetski when he wanted.

We tubed until our arms turned into jello and we got tossed like rag dolls across the channel. 

We did lots of wake surfing

We played Ticket to Ride at least 20 times

Cousins - right before jumping from the 3rd level

My Uncle Rod's houseboat is nicer than any house we will ever own in our lives.  

Gang's all here! (for the most part)


Let's do it again.

Just remember those sunsets are a dime a dozen in case you are in need of some convincing to kiss UT goodbye!

Lake Powell look magnificent...nothing like the glowing green waters of enchantment.
