Summer Vacation 2007

We decided this summer we were going to get out as a family and do something. We started our trip after the Williams family reunion in Island Park Idaho. We left there and took the kids to Yellowstone National park to see the sites and Old Faithful. We then went through Teton National Park and saw the beautiful waters at Jackson lake and decided to stay in a cabin and boat on Jackson Lake. WOW! It was so beautiful there. On the way home we stopped in our old town of Swan Valley, Idaho so the boys could fish in the Snake River. After recooping for a week from that trip we headed out again. We started our trip by going through Bryce Canyon National Park, we then spent 4 awesome days boating at Lake Powell with my brother Chad and his family. We then took the kids to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and then on our way home we went through Zions National Park. We loved Zions so much that we stayed an extra day and hiked into the narrows. What a beautiful place. We had a blast and no one wanted to come home. That's what I call a priceless vacation. The posted pictures our of each location we visited. Enjoy!

Lake Powell

The kids loved finding rocks to jump from.
They are braver than I am. I hate jumping

John and Josh hanging out in the 85 degree water.

Jack really didn't enjoy the water all that much.
He prefers being on the boat going fast.

John has the reputation for the love of speed.
He kept telling Chad to go faster and give it all
he had. At one time he was going so fast the
sleeves on his shirt were blown up like a balloon.

Zions National Park

We hiked up into the Narrows.
As you walked the sides became narrower

We each had a stick so we wouldn't fall down.
It's a must for balance

Jack rode in the pack for the hike, he did awesome.

We had to walk up the river,
the kids had a blast.
