Courts Trip - Sagauro Lake...

On Wednesday Spencer took us girls and babies to the lake. I felt really bad because I almost ruined the trip and made the whole beginning of our day just hectic, scary and stressful. You see I have never pulled anything ( truck and trailer ) nor have I driven a boat very much in my life ( maybe once or twice ). So when Spencer asked if I could park the car and the boat trailer after dropping them off at the dock I thought I could do it. I wanted to prove that I was cool or something. Well I passed up all the spaces, they didn't look big enough and had cars parked way to close and I ended up going where cars with trailers shouldn't go. I thought about turning around but I didn't have room with the trailer behind me and I don't know how to maneuver the trailer to where I want it to be. I was stuck and I was freaking out. Just then I look out to the lake and I see Spenc on the boat and I hear him yell to me "STAY THERE!". Ya I totally didn't feel cool anymore...totally just proved myself to be a failure. Well Spenc told me to go down to the boat and drive it to the dock and he'd meet us there after he got the car unstuck and parked. Remember that I've only driven the boat like once? Well I got on and had to try and remember how to even make it go. Well after my sisters pushed us off the dock i tried to move it but got it going a little faster then I thought and we turned quick and nailed the dock with the back of the boat. Seriously? What else could I screw up? Theres a big scratch where I hit it.  I was freaking out and just about to tears. I was shaking as I was trying to drive it over to the dock and I pretty much never wanted to drive a stupid boat ever again. After Spenc got in the boat he noticed the boat wasn't running well and then noticed he forgot to put the plug in. Water was filling up where the engine is and he freaked out. Luckily he was able to put the plug in and drained the water. It was pretty much a nightmare to say the least. After everything, Spencer was surprisingly still calm and wasn't upset at me. We decided to try and make the rest of the day fun. We tubed and wakeboarded and it ended up being a fun day. Thank Goodness!
