The Rad Dad

He's our man!

Charity took up early morning fishing
with the experts Sister Jensen and Chris.
They caught eight striper bass that were
grilled for dinner and happily devoured by all!
Our five days on the Lake were filled to the max with adventure and fun. On Sunday we boated to Rainbow Bridge and explored a steep, narrow and long slot canyon.

The lower photos are of Mike gliding on a slalom
and jumping it up on the wake board. A chip off the old block.

By the photos you can see we had a fabulous
time at Lake Powell. Everyone played hard
and tried new things...pushing their boundaries
into new areas of skill.
And the old boat, though the engine rattled and
complained rather noisely, faithfully transported us
for hours of water fun and sight seeing on the
this lake encased in beautiful red cliffs.

More of Lake Powell

So Michael had this great idea to create a ski pryamid.
They practiced with Kimberly on the top

Then executed with Jason Jensen climbing on top of
Josh Jensen on the left and Michael on the right.

After several close attempts, a lighter weight
Charity was elected to be lifted to the top.

Posted by PicasaThen after awhile the stuntmen settled for duo skiing, crossing over and under each other

Smooth water at Lake Powell makes skiing fun!
