glistening utah lake

oh utah lake, how i love thee. it doesn't even bother me that you smell like sulfur in some spots, that i saw a floating terd and that if i get any water in my mouth i come down with a fever.
i love you anyway.

day one
i wish you could see how skinny my mom is. she weighs less than i do now. all thanks to this.
i tried it too (for 5 days) and i lost 6 lbs.

my parents look so great you'd think it'd motivate me to put down the cheetos and do something with myself. you'd think?

this is adam, he was stoked to ride the tube...

even when we all ate it, he was still mugging for the camera!

princess brinny face even enjoyed her turn.

you'd think from this post,
i would've learned my lesson to avoid tubing while my dad is behind the wheel.

day two: 07.05.08

poor little avery was super concerned for russ' safety while he was surfing.

but he was a champ.

i'm not even going to attempt to back-door brag on this one...
i smoked everyone with the longest run,
and still managed to put up some awkward hang ten signs circa 1983.

and just because she's special.

it's pathetic isn't it. it really annoys me that i am always losing it, but this time i think it's for real.

This post reminded me of the time Russ lost his shorts out there. I don't think you were there, but ask Russ to remind you, its a great story. I think Barbie was really worried she would see something that she shouldn't... Ahh the memories of Utah Lake!!!

Wow I tried the surfing thing at Lake Powell and basically shamed myself for life. Never have I been so embarrassed. COULD NOT DO IT. You are my idol.
