We had such a great time at Uba this year although it was very windy most of the time that we were there.  However, we did have one good day and that was Saturday and we were able to get out on the boat.  Aaron was not able to go on this trip because he had a staff infection and poison oak that he caught up the canyon while he was trying to stop all the flooding that was happening.  He broke out with little bumps all over his body that started in his leg and we thought they were just bug bites at first until they started to spread all over his body and they went from very small bumps to large and lots of oozing at that point we knew they were not just bug bites.  The last boating trip we went on was to Lake Powell and he was unable to come with us there because he came down with the swine flu.  I am beginning to think that its all self induced cause from anxiety because he dislikes these trips so much.  Hopefully he wont come up with anything for our next Powell trip which is planned for Labor Day I am keeping my fingers crossed.  

I just love this picture of Paisley wearing her first life jacket that is way to big for her.  This was her first of many boating trips and she did so good.  She slept the entire time I think she loved the feel and sound of the boat.  

The kids had a blast as usual they can't get enough of the lake. ( They definitely get that from me.)  They love to tube I think that is their favorite however, they have never tried waked boarding or skiing I am going to try to get them (Stockton and Addie) up this year I think that they will love that just as much once they learn how.  

Sarah one on my bestest friends also came down for one of the days (The windy-rainy one)  and the kids had such a great time together.  I have to laugh at her little guy Brenden he kept us entertained the entire time.  First, the kids came running over to me yelling "Brenden, just kissed Brightyn."  Brightyn then walked up and said "Mom,  my lips wont fall off because he kissed me."    (All of our kids know that is they kiss before they're 25 that their lips will fall off and have to be sewen back on.)  Then he took a  huge rock and threw it on our watermelon that we had in the water (to keep cool) and split it in two, I thought that my mom was going to cry she was looking so forward to that watermelon for dinner.  He is full of energy, such a funny little guy.  We were sad to see them leave we had so much fun with them I wish that the weather would have been a little better for them.
