this past week, steve and i went up to shaver lake for a family reunion with the rehaks. shaver lake is a small lake, located about an hour outside of fresno, and about two and a half hours from yosemite. we boated, fished, swam, wake surfed, tubed, hiked, saw some huge trees, ate delicious ice cream, shopped some local antique and craft stores, and enjoyed good company. it was a much needed vacation. pictures to come soon...whenever my mother-in-law emails them to me.
