Happy 70th Birthday, Werner

My father-in-law, Werner, turned 70 back in July. For his birthday, we planned a trip to Shaver Lake with the whole Jacobsen clan. All 18 have been staying in one BIG cabin. It's been a great week. The cousins are having a blast. We've been taco-ing (new word) behind the boat, shooting bb guns, eating smores and playing games.

Our verse of the week has been 1 Peter 4:8-10:

Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaint. As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

I brought the mt. bike and have been logging some good miles. (I couldn't let the SLO crew pass me by!)

We're here till Friday. Back in the saddle on Sunday. See you then.

Happy Birthday, Werner.

I checked the weather up there and it looks really nice...you may have convinced me to head back to Shaver next year for some camping...you have to have your reservations a year in advance to camp by the lake!

73 degree water temperature, not bad for a Sierra lake.

Naci was beautiful last week, btw. It cooled way down and the hottest it got was 95, then 90, then 85 the last day, with 80ish water temperatures. Amen to that.

Other than my brother-in-law sucking the tow rope into the Sea-Doo jet, it was an all good and much needed break.

Hope you come back refreshed from a week of boating.
