I'm sleeping in tomorrow

Just got back from the "vacation" in Tahoe.

The ride up was fine, very hot. The kids slept pretty much the whole way...yay!

We did stop by Costco on the way. We also went to Costco on Friday and today. I'm beginning to hate Costco, and this family has an obsession with it. It's so bad, I was dreaming about Costco last night. Eek!

Anyways...We didn't get to Tahoe until late the first night. Here's the view of the sunset from the condo.

On Friday morning we drove to Virginia City, Nevada. What a boring town. It's great to go look around in the stores for an hour, but then, what else do you do? People actually live in this town because they want to. Bleck. Here's Main Street.

Friday night we went and saw War of the Worlds...Great movie. Y'all should go see it.

Saturday we went to the beach at Lake Tahoe. We climbed up on these huge massive rocks all day, and I didn't even break a nail. I'm good.

Some more pretty Tahoe

Saturday night we went out to eat at this Mexican place. Boy almost threw up because he ate to much salsa and then HostMom and I ate a jabenero (uhhh...I think thats how you spell that) pepper. Holy Shit! That burnt my mouth to a crisp. I was drinking water, eating french fries, drinking lemonade, eating tortillas...nothing got rid of the burning. I'm never eating jabenero peppers again. My throat was still burning an hour later.

Today we packed up and headed home. But first, we had to stop and hike up to a waterfall. Fun Fun for everyone. We thought it was going to be a short little hike, but No! We hiked forever. Heres a picture from up in the boon-dogs of Tahoe Valley, on the way up to the waterfall.

I'm going to bed feet are tired.

  1. I used to live in a smalllllll town in Louisiana and you would be amazed at how fun it is to live in such a small world...especially for old guys.

    Women, kids and teenage folk die of boredom in these small towns but old folk thrive.

    I am not sure what that means... :-)
