Shaver Lake!

This last weekend we got to meet up with friends from Fresno and San Diego at Shaver Lake. After a week of all of us being sick, it was great to get in the fresh air and have time with friends.
Annika loves hanging out with her adopted aunts. There were three babies there (17 mo, 12 mo, and 3 mo) which made it eventful, but many hands made it fun.

Annika spent after a day on the boat. One of the few times she actually slept in Kara's arms for more than a minute.
Ok, quick story... we were staying at Jill's parent's cabin. Jill's husband, Derek, had to work Friday. As he was leaving he looked at me and said, "Good luck driving the boat today." I didn't think too much of it.
Well, the boat is a "Party Barge" pontoon boat. Let's just say a lot bigger than what I am used to. To make matters worse, there was a huge wind that day that was blowing into the docks. When we went to pull out of the slip, the wind was so strong it wouldn't let me turn the boat. So we end up zig zagging our way down the docks for about 10 slips. It was an all hands on deck moment, everyone pushing off of boats that we were inches from hitting. Finally, Jon was able to grab on to one boat and it anchored us just enough to turn up wind and get out of dodge. How we didn't hit anything is a miracle. Nice work everyone, it was definitely a memory made together! Derek, thanks for the heads up, sort of!

With Aunt Michelle, which was a lifesaver here as AJ was being a little pill until Michelle volunteered to take her for a few minutes. Swing time makes the world a better place.
