Last weekend, Irving and I headed up to Lake Tahoe for a fun weekend with some family and friends! We met up with EJ, Sarah, Sarah #2, Doug, Jake and Janie! It was such a blast.
We flew into Reno early on Saturday morning. From the airport, we headed directly to a Snow Mobile tour! It was a BLAST!
On the way down, I drove a little bit! Kind of scary along those cliffs!
And my sisters will appreciate that I probably stuck out my tongue the whole way down. Bahahaha!
Towards the end, we stopped for a hot chocolate break! They have a "secret recipe" and we were trying to figure out what it was!
We think it might have been cinnamon or some other kind of spice. It was really good.
But I definitely couldn’t finish a whole cup of it. Too much of a good thing I guess. 🙂
That night, we went out to celebrate Jake and Janie’s birthday!
I was in a random mood and got an awesome salad with a side of saffron rice. MMmm!
The next day, Sarah and Doug went snowboarding and the rest of us hung out in South Lake Tahoe. We walked along the beach and it was absolutely GORGEOUS!
Pretending to fight "like real sisters". hahaha
Hubby and I!
I think this is a cute picture of Irving and Jake. :)
Then we spent the rest of the day in the Casinos. Irving really wanted to gamble on the NCAA games that were on. Thankfully, we found a smoke-free sportsbook inside Harvey’s Casino. It was actually pretty nice. I think overall, we lost, but I totally won on the "Goldfish" Slot game!
Unfortunately, while were losing all our money in the casinos and Sarah & Doug were snowboarding, Doug broke his shoulder! It was so sad. Getting hurt on vacation totally stinks. We felt really bad. Get better soon, Doug!!! It was such a bummer. We love you guys!
The next day, Irving, Sarah, EJ, Jake and Janie headed up the mountain to ski. I didn’t want to risk breaking my leg a month before the Boston Marathon, so I opted out. Looks like they had a great time though!
While they were out, I totally enjoyed some alone time in the beautiful weather. I went for a long walk and snapped a few pictures.
What a great trip!!
