Summer 2007!

Back to reality! We had a wonderful trip to Lake Tahoe. Our first stop was Crater Lake, Or. I hadn't been there since I was little, it is as beautiful as I remember. Next stop, Ashland,Or home to the famous Shakespeare Festival. Ashland is a darling town. From there, on to Reno, Nevada. This was my first time inside a casino, let's just say "not my thing" :) We stayed at Circus Circus, Bennett kept saying, "This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in!" The boys were in heaven with all the carnival type games that we let them play until THEY wanted to stop. South Lake Tahoe was our next stop for 3 days. It is so beautiful. We then headed to North Lake Tahoe, to Squaw Valley for the last 4 days. We rode the gondola to 8000 ft to High Camp where you spend the day if you like, with a swimming pool, hiking trails, restaurants, and spectacular view. While in Squaw Valley, Tahoe was having it's own Shakespeare Festival, so we saw Romeo and Juliet! The backdrop to the stage is the lake, you bring your beach chairs and a picnic to watch the play. It was wonderful. I think even the boys enjoyed it!

That's our trip in a nutshell. We had a great time!

  1. Sounds like a great trip. I saw you were wearing a jacket, so the weather must have been nice. Your pics are cute.

    Welcome back to reality!
