a detour

So when we left California to head home, we had planned a stop off in our old stompin' vacation getaway grounds, the river...Arizona. We used to go there so much when our kids were little, up until school age. Then everything changes, you have different obligations! Bella has been out on a boat since she was 2 weeks old, they have grown up going to the river, and my husband misses it THE MOST. In fact it's the only thing he misses about living in California, the river.

We stayed at Aquarius, our room was really nice, and while I always hate staying in Casinos (that's all there is) it's because the smoke. We have a house there, but now with us living in Texas, we rent it out, because 18 hours is a really long time to drive to get there from Texas!!

We had one day out on the lake, courtesy of some friends of ours, we used their boat, since we sold ours when we moved here...thinking about the lakes here, people saying there are snakes in them, and they are murky..kinda deterred me..but now we are thinking maybe next year, after the helluva pool project we have going, it might be time to check out boats and lakes here..since this is our forever home....

 The canyons and mountains are amazing!
 The water is so clear...you could drink it if you had too..I love the sandy bottom, the ripples in the water

 they could play in the sand all day...and they did in between boat rides...

 he is getting so big!

 Sorry about the hat of my husbands' in the picture..but I liked this one of Bella

 cooling off...the water is a bit chilly at this time of year. About 74* in the water and 104* outside...So you wouldn't find me in the water til about mid July or so..when the water is warmer and it's about 118*

 There are lotsa canyons and coves of water all up and down Lake Mead, it's nice to stop in them, cool off and then head back out..

 Pictures of us..since we never have any! I always joke, that my kids are not going to know what I looked like when they were little, cause there are never any pictures of me..

 Rows of house boats docked at Katherine's Landing..
So our trip was great with a great ending...how much more could I ask for...Now back to starting the summer with my favorite peeps...my family!!

Big Hugs
