:: family happenings - magical evening

So . . . have you guessed what my favorite
evening at Lake Powell entailed . . . besides karaoke night?
Sky Lanterns!
Just like the ones seen in Tangled
and . . . in the latest season of The Bachelorette
(I'm not the only one that watches that, right?)

I'd seen it on a blog and had no clue that you
could go on amazon and buy them yourself!
So that's what I went ahead and did.
One of the best $25 I've ever spent (for 10 of them)
It was magical.
Not only did Ava love it, but we all did.
There were about 15-20 of us trying to light
up these 10 lanterns so we could let
them go at the same time.
We'll definitely be buying more
for our next Lake Powell trip.
(They're made out of rice paper and bamboo
so they're completely biodegradable)
You can find some cheaper ones here.


  1. Very cool! What a fun thing for everyone to enjoy and remember.

  2. Had no idea this was an event. Will be seeing it myself next time!

  3. It was soooo fun! Did the video turn out ok?

  4. That's awesome! We go every year, too. That would be fun to try out.

  5. Those are so cool! I've seen those so many places. They kinda just make it really special. :)
