Lake Powell: The human body experiment

How much sun can one human body take?  We put ourselves to the test this past week.  We took our family down to Lake Powell and camped right on the beach, where we had the sun beating down on us from sun-up til sun-down.  Most of us did ok.  Jack, our 8yr. old fair-skinned,  blondie, didn't do so great.  We think he got a small dose of heat- stroke.  He was very lethargic, sleeping most of the days.  Not wanting to eat or drink,  in a small amount of body pain,  and then even a trip- highlighting diarrhea incident.   Sounds fun huh????
Actually we still were able to have a great time.  And even though Jack did not feel good, he was quite the trooper.  We were still able to do plenty of wake-boarding, surfing, cliff diving, and all the fun stuff we do down in Powell. 
It takes alot more than heatstroke and diarrhea to stop us from having a good time!  
Bring it on!

Jack's spot for the majority of the trip.
I'm sorry Jack that you have such irresponsible parents.  I'm calling child services on myself.

The animal on the leash you are referring to would be our child...next week we have an appointment to get her flea dipped. THe monkey "backpack" is a safety precaution for curious toddlers who like to run out in the road in the event you cannot hold their hand every second, but after this post I'm guessing you wouldnt know anything about taking measures to ensure your children's safety...Just Kidding! Should have just given the kid a bottle of water and told him to "Shake it off...we're here to have fun damn it!" Sounds like you were just as hot as we were...

Sorry Jack! Like Becky said last year at Powell "Don't ruin my vacation!!!" Glad you guys still had fun...do we get to see some more pictures?

That was the most "unclean" thing that I have ever done- and by unclean, I mean sand in every nook and cranny and straw for hair.

As Corey and I say, "Chalk on up for the POTY award." (parent of the year) Granted, you might be in the running for the POTY this year, but definitely behind us! Looks like a fun trip, it makes me remember fun memories....
