Lake Powell Houseboat Vacation With Our Kids

38Family

We have been planning this family vacation since last year.  All the kids juggled their crazy schedules so we could spend a week together on a houseboat on Lake Powell.  We had so much fun and made memories to last a lifetime!

01Houseboat We rented a 70′ houseboat with all the extras.  Our week was action-packed and relaxing at the same time.  The perfect combination!

We anchored in a pretty little cove with our own little lagoon.
