Last Friday, we packed up our Swagger Wagon and headed to South Lake Tahoe. Sean’s sweet coworker, Denise, invited us to stay in their guest suite for the weekend. We had never met her hubby, Mark, but he was so wonderful. And a bonus, he LOVES kids, and Owen made a new friend.
We arrived late Friday, and Denise & Mark had pizza ready for us. Their house is so beautiful and the backyard overlooks tons of trees. Also a bonus, they had about 5 feet of snow.
Saturday morning, we all went out to breakfast at The Getaway Cafe. It’s a sweet little house that has been transformed into a sweeter little restaurant. I had the Whole Earth omelet. YUM. After we were full and energized, Sean, Owen and I decided to check out the local sledding options. Right down the street from the cafe was a golf course that was being used for sledding, since there was so much snow. After 2 times (slowly….) down the hill, Owen declared he was done. Super. Quickest $30 we’ve ever spent. ($10 per person/hour)
So, we packed up ourselves and headed back to Denise and Mark’s house. We had planned ahead and bought our snow/sand castle molds, and we set to work building an igloo, per Owen’s request. The snow was too powdery for anything to really stick, but we had a fun time anyways.
We definitely had a GREAT time and plan on going back. The guest suite we stayed in was FANTASTIC! Our own flat screen tv, mini fridge, huge bathroom with tons of products. Heaven.
