Bass Lake 2010

It's been a roller coaster year for the Bass Lakers. We lost Aunt Carol in June and it was really hard to look forward to the trip knowing we were missing such a key member. She battled liver disease and cancer for a long time and although we knew she was sick, it was still hard.
First, we thought the trip was going to be a bust because no one was going but in the end, most of the group was there and we had a great time. Jen Pettus had to stay home and study for a big test in becoming a lactation consultant and Shelley had to work. The Buenos also had to stay back because Ashlyn had hip surgery just a few weeks before, but hopefully next year the whole group will be there.
The girls loved the boat and going on boat rides. They swam every opportunity they could and had a great time. Ryan swam with the girls while most of the time I stayed back with Sarah at the house. She made a few trips to the water and seemed to like the swaying of the dock. Next year will be much more fun for her, but the big girls had a blast this year and are already looking forward to next year.
The first of many boat rides
