Our quickie girls’ roadtrip to Tahoe was fun, but tiring. (Actually, we all know that only one of the three girls on the trip was tired, and it wasn’t Ro or Ree!)
We got there in the evening, unloaded everything into the cabin, and the girls immediately begged to visit the lake, where they promised to only dip their toes in the water. I am forty-something years old, for cripes’ sake, and STILL fall for that one.
Hm... With nary a paper towel in the van, the soggy little squirts dried off with two sweatshirts and wore a couple of car blankets back to the cabin:
We spent the next few days playing around at various beaches around the lake. Oh so many fun beaches to explore and
rocks and sticks to collect. (Which reminds me, need to toss those blasted “treasures” out of the back of the van before the girls remember they’re there...)
One of the beaches was PACKED. More people per square inch of sand than I’ve ever seen there. Ro and Ree were nonplussed, but my introverty self wanted to immediately flee.
It was fine though. I stayed under my nice little umbrella happily munching on Pringles, while the girls built (and rebuilt and rebuilt) their “Great Wall of China”:
We had dinner at The Beacon one night (a must-visit restaurant) and frolicked on the wharf before getting texted that our table was ready (how cool is that?):
The gorgeous-reach-out-and-touch-all-that-blue dinner view at The Beacon always slays me (and we love the food too):
The view straight up from our table wasn’t too shabby either. Ro wanted to know how they kept pinecones from falling on people’s heads. Beats the heck out of me:
We hit a few more water holes the next day, and clearly the girls weren’t too surly about it:
While Ro and Ree were busy moving every rock in the lake to a new location, I was quite busy admiring my new Tahoe drugstore flip flops. (Yes I am a huge sucker for cute drugstore flip flops!):
I think this one is my fave picture, even though it was a complete misfire as my beach chair (and my butt) were suddenly doused by water:
Bye Tahoe, we’ll miss you!
PS: The girls slept in until a little after ten a.m. this morn. !!!!! I guess I wasn’t the only tired one after all. And I put names in the alt tags, so mouseover to see who’s who.
