Tahoe Continued

When I win the lottery, we are moving to Tahoe.  Or at least buying our summer home there.  It would be a perfect getaway since the summers in San Diego tend to be foggy and cool.  I love, love, love, Tahoe.  One of the most beautiful places in the my opinion.

Our last four days in Tahoe we spent with our good friends at Casa Bowman.  Keith and Chris have been friends for a long time.  Since, like forever since the late 70's, man.  When we reunite in Tahoe every year, there is an instant comfort and lots of stories to re-live and laugh about. 

Every year we have the same schedule of events...we always have a beach day...

The men have a golf and poker day while the women folk entertain the kids.  This year we found a new hiking trail near their cabin.
While on the hike, I think we may have arranged a marriage.  Elise still has a choice though...they have three bachelors to choose from.  This day it looked like Cash had the edge.
 For the first time we all figured out the boys would be in a lot less trouble when the golf/poker day gets out of hand if the girls plan a day off as well.  We shopped, went to lunch, got our nails did and met this random woman outside of Garwoods. Amazing how a few drinks in high altitude brings strangers together!  The men took the kids fishing and Sam caught his first fish. 
They were also thrilled about spotting a bald eagle flying above them. 

We usually start out the 4th of July with a day at the kids are waiting for their chance to jump...
The trip would not be complete without a little photo shoot.  This is my favorite from this year.

Our last night is always a picnic dinner, a group photo, and fireworks in Tahoe City.

Sam tried out my camera for the first are a few of his shots.

We usually wake up at 5:00 the following morning to start our long
and beautiful drive home down the backside of the Sierra's. 
Looking forward to Tahoe 2011!
