McCall and more fun!Omne

We had a fun swimming day with Jen and her girls at the pool,  then they slept over with us one night. We had tons of fun!

Monica takes her girls to the Pioneer Park at "This is the Place" once a week. So we swapped kids, and I kept Jane here at our house and Isaac and Lizzie went to work like pioneers with Monica. We all had fun!
Taylor headed to McCall with Jennifer and had fun for a few day without us there yet. He was happy to play with Eden and other colors etc.. 

Danny, emily and I went to the Days of 47 Rodeo with some friends and neighbors one night. We had so much fun at the Rodeo and then Emily had a blast doing a few rides at the fair after. We have great friends and neighbors! 

The next night we went to a new fun restaurant with our friends its called "Sicilia Mia" the food is so delicious! We had a great night! 

The next day we headed to McCall ID after church.
We had an 8 hour drive but it went by fast and we all were happy and excite to get to McCall!
We LOVE it there and we had so much fun with Grandma and Grandpa Deppe, aunts, uncles and cousins!
The lake is SO gorgeous and makes for so many fun things to do, the scenery is gorgeous there too.
Here are lot of pics from our trip! 

One day we rented a two story pontoon boat and we had such a fabulous day on it!  It was so fun! There was a slide off the back and it was tons of fun to go off the slide or jump off the side of the boat. The water was cold, but refreshing and so fun to jump in to! 

All the kids loved the boat even the little babies did great! We had a leisurely fun day on the boat and everyone really had fun! 

We spent lots of time at the pools at the Shore Lodge and at the "Fish & Swim Club" these pools are amazing and so nice! Big hot tubs, amazingly beautiful views and hardly anyone at these pools! The think it's paradise! Also there is a big pond stocked with lots of trout to keep the kids happy as they catch lot of fish! 

We all loved relaxing and spending lots of time with the whole family. The kids love their little cousins and have fun with them! 

Going out on the Surf boat is one of the best days of the trip! We all love being on the water and had so much fun together on the boat!
Danny, Lizzie, Emily, Isaac and Taylor all had a great time in the surf  boards! 

We had a terrific week in McCall, ID! We can't wait until we can go back again!  

Isaac went with a friend to a climbing wall place and had tons of fun!

 Emily got braces! She looks so cute and really grown up! I love her smile!

On Sunday after church we packed up and left for Lake Powell! We love this trip and had tons of fun.
We drove to Page, ate dinner and then headed to Antelope Point Marina and unloaded the boat etc.. onto the house boat. 

We slept on the boat Sunday night while everyone arrived at boat and then headed out early Monday morning for Cookie Jar to park for the week. 

We had tons of fun boating, swimming, water skiing,  wake boarding, surfing, tubing, knee boarding, body womping, cloud jumping, cliff jumping etc... Lots of fun, time in the sun, laughs, music, good food etc... It is SO much fun! 

The scenery at Lake Powell is amazing and unbelievable! It's so beautiful and stunning. I love the storms that roll in over the water, and we can see the wind, etc.. We were tied on tight to the shore, so the boat didn't budge during the big waves. 

We had 18 people total on the boat this year, 8 kid and the rest adults. It was a full boat, but tons of fun to all be together. We all got along and had a great time.

We LOVE Lake Powell and are so grateful for our time we spent on the lake. Yay for a wonderful trip!

Once we were home, unpacked etc.. We had Emily going to an awesome Volleyball camp, she learned lot of new skills and had tons of fun!

We had a fun and busy 4th of July weekend! We started the weekend with a cousin playdate swap
Alli, Hannah & Lizzie came here to run in the sprinklers and Isaac went to Beccas house to play games all afternoon.
Later that night Joey & Gidget dug a big hole and went under the house! It was quite the production to get them out! Emily was nervous and scared that they were stuck forever! 

Saturday we took the ski boat to Jordanelle for a day on the lake. We had fun swimming, eating a picnic lunch and wake boarding etc... The water was cold, but it felt refreshing! 

We headed home for the Lake and got ready to go to Provo for the annual 4th of July Hawkins family party!  We had dinner, saw cousins, aunts, uncles etc... and then sat on the grass all evening waiting for the fireworks to start.
It's one of our favorite traditions of the year! 

Sunday we went to church and then came home and packed up to go to Eden, UT. Our friends the Keele family have a condo there and they invited us to stay there for a couple of days with them.
So we loaded up Danny's new fishing boat and headed to Pineview Reservoir. We spent 2 days with them and it was SO much fun!
We spent one full day at the lake kayaking, swimming , boating, fishing, building sand castles etc... it was a beautiful day and so pleasant for everyone. 

After a day at the lake we had dinner and then went swimming at the pool near their condo. The kids love to swim!
The 4th of July we went to the parade in Huntsville, and then enjoyed the other festivities in the city. It was a great, relaxing get away and so much fun to spend time with the Keele family.
