Senator's Wash.. My paradise

So I think i may be a weirdy because I consider the mucky, sandy, hot river my paradise! I have been going there since i can remember and there is just nothing better to me than being on a house boat in Lake Powell or laying out in the water at Senator's wash. it's one of those wonderful childhood memories that you want to relive every summer. We would go with friends and family, take our boat and seadoo's and jetskii's, eat, swim, and just relax in the water. The last time we went was about 5 years ago, and we haven't had the opportunity to go because there has been wedding after wedding and baby after baby. Each year we kept saying we'd go, but it never worked out, BUT we FINALLY got the chance to go in July! I was so excited! It ended up just being my Dad, Mom, sisters, and all the kiddies. I was a little worried about having Reef by myself. There isn't much of a current, but it is still pretty nerve wrecking since he can't swim yet, however, he did soo well! He had a blast just relaxingin a chair in the water. We left on a Thursday and came home on Sunday. We got to spend 2 whole days just relaxing and playing in the water. I felt like a little kid all over again. We all ended up having so much fun that we plan on going back one more time before the summer is over, we are hoping the whole famiy will get to go this next time. Unfortunately, the only camera I had was on my phone so I wasn't able to capture all the fun, but i was able to take a few pictures.
