This last weekend, we drove 12 hours (6 there, 6 back), with our 2 little antsy kids, to spend 30 hours down in Page, AZ. I swear packing our bags took longer than the time we spent having fun haha.
Wow, why would you do that to yourself? *grin* Last-year-me would have said, I know right? But this-year-me would sit last-year-me down and say we did it for family time at Lake Powell. Unlike Jake, I did not grow up boating (so the packing & planning that goes into it still stresses me out), but I have since learned to love it. My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is watch my little ones take it all in. This was Charlotte’s first Powell trip and man was it worth my insanity.
The water was perfect, the weather was divine, and the company wasn’t bad either. This weekend was exactly what I needed. We got some sun, played in the sand, and I drank way too much Dr. Pepper. This was definitely the perfect way to end our summer.
This year I’m making my resolutions in September, since making them in January never seems to work out for me HA! But seriously, my kiddos are growing up way too fast. I want to get better at letting the little things go, not sweating the small stuff and enjoying this.
So here’s to September & the rest of 2016! Ttyl Summer. It’s been rad.
