You're never too young for Lake Powell...

We figured since Sienna was already 7 weeks old, it was definitely time for her first Lake Powell trip. We went down with my family and stayed on the houseboat. Friday was really nice, but unfortunately the rest of the weekend was pretty crappy weather. Just as we got the boat all packed up on Sunday, the sun broke through and suddenly there was blue sky and sunshine...just in time for the ride home! We still had a great time eating good food, relaxing, reading and playing games. We also celebrated my sister Janelle's birthday. Happy birthday, Nelly! On Friday we took Sienna on her first boat ride and she LOVED it. We borrowed a tiny life jacket that she wore. We thought she'd hate it being all confined, but she loved it. (I guess it's like being swaddled?) It was so funny. She didn't make a peep the entire ride. Dan just held her and she was all smiles. She just looked so cute I couldn't take enough pictures. Everyone keeps telling me how much Sienna looks like Dan or that "she's a Dixon," but after this trip I was happy to know that there is definitely some Hanson in her!



Sienna and aunt Janelle snoozin'. This little one got so spoiled and was held by someone pretty much the entire trip!

I love these pictures! I still can't believe how ok she was being in this life jacket. She just loved it!


The girls!

Dan just held Sienna and eventually she fell asleep in his arms

The Dixon Fam

Here's a few favorites of Sienna's smile. Love this girl!

I thought this was kind of a cool picture. This was taken out the window of my dad's truck as we were leaving. The storm started to break and the sun was shining on this mountain and made it just glow/sparkle. It was really cool.

Aw, how fun! I love lake powell. My kids have never been! We keep thinking that we should get a little jet boat and go camp down there. One day... Sienna's smile is so dang sweet.

Wow, is she already old enough to smile! Time has gone by so fast, I feel like she was just born. She is such a little dolly!

I love Lake Powell. The twins were about Sienna's age when they went the first time. We have been 3 times since they were born! It is a fun time, and judging by that gorgeous smile Sienna was having a good time too.
