I am 24 years old and I have been to Powell almost every year of my life
It is my favorite place. I will pick it as my vacation every time
storms, sunken houseboats (truth), concussion, big fish, sunburn, and cuts have been worth it
If you have never been- I feel sorry for you
This year it was only 17 of us but was still a blast!
Xelly and Quinton were in heaven.
Xelly was convinced we were living there forever. She was so confused when I told her we were leaving the next day. She responded with
"Mommy this big housesboat and little boat are ours houses now"
Oh I wish!
Cliff jumped (even xelly off a10 footer)
Tubed- Jacob and I won with the best air. Jacob got 14 feet I got 10. He ended with 3 chipped/broken teeth I ended with 2 bruised ribs and a swollen/bruised leg- we were laughing so hard!
Built a underground house aka the heart room
Fires with s'mores
Trip to dangling rope to spit by the fish and eat ice cream
Lots of good food
Late night card games
Nothing beats being on a houseboat with no service for a week with people you loved at the beginning of the trip. I countdown each year to this vacation
So glad I get to share this beautiful place with my husband and kids
I hope it becomes as special of a pace to them as it is for me.
Till next year
so ready to find a beach and get in the water
Xelly was not thrilled about her first cliff jump.
a day or two later she thought it was cool.
Swimming back after jumping
No such thing ask clean dry clothing
nothing better than some wind burn/ jacket rub
paddle board fun
Xelly loved the tube!
6 hour drive back to the marina.
The kids- all of us- loved it.
I cant wait till next year!!
