Our first family vacay

Ever since I can remember, I've been a River kid.  My parents have always been huge on going to the river... I think it rubbed off on me.
I love the river- everything about it... especially the huge boats, thong bikini's, and flashing for beads.
The river has always been a place that my family can relax.  My Parents have owned their house at Park Moabi Marina (yes, the place that now has The Naked Pirate... GAG) for about 20 years.  We've always made it a point to make trips about every other weekend during season, and once a month over the Winter months.
Jeff's family has always been a River Family also.  They stay in Laughlin and take their boat to Lake Mohave and spend 4-5 days per summer.
We were really excited when we heard the news that Jeff's family was planning their yearly trip.  To keep Jaelyn at home with a sitter wasn't an option, we had to introduce her to the river waters ASAP- we wanted her to know what is was all about at a young age (you know, the thong bikini's and beads??... kidding!!!).
Jeff and I are really happy to say that she loved it.  Every second of her experience was amazing.  The fussing was minimal, the talking and giggling was more than we've seen yet, and she had a constant content look.  We had an awesome time.

Leave it to my Steve Irwin Boyfriend to find the treasures..
