Last Hurrah--Lake Tahoe

Last trip of summer vacation...8/13-8/17
I've been putting this post off because of the daunting task of trying to pick the best pictures out of obscene amount I took. Lake Tahoe makes too fine a backdrop!
Here are some favorite shots of the trip:
From the boat...



Alex--my four year old--on the wakeboard looking so cool!
All the kids tried it and got up in a funny crouched position. They were awesome and I was proud! Cousin Mason (8) did great! My kids preferred the knee board because they felt more confident.

Hannah on the wakeboard
Hannah LOVED the knee board. She stayed out there forever and kept leaning to the sides to move the board and do some "tricks!"
Jake, serious as ever, not so sure about all of it! He rocked the tubes, though!
Owen rocking the sunglasses

Syd, rocking the oreo goatee!

There are just too many! Here's more on a slide show from the boat...

We also swam at the pool...




Played at the beach and tried to catch crawdads...

Putting in the cage...

Waiting...

More waiting...

I don't think they got one but they had lots of spottings and near-catches and a run-in with a snake!


We jumped off the pier. (Alex was the first to do it, of course!)
Our ten year good luck leap...


Jake was not so sure. He was so nervous, breathing heavily, trying to get up his nerve, then he just went for it and he immediately pops out of the water saying "That was awesome! I wanna do that again!" and went about 6 more times in a row!

Mason...

David Haupt (love the form!)...


We also went tubing on the Truckee River...









And over to Fanny Bridge to see the BIG fish...






Here's some of Kim's great pics and why this bridge is called "Fanny"...

(I was trying to make my butt look as big as possible! I totally succeeded, don't ya think? I beat Jason!)





And finally our favorite park right on the beach...



And, of course, rock skipping...

Amazing trip...love Tahoe...back to school and back to the grind!

Oh, Annie. Really, I need to discontinue my Jealous of Tahoe Trips(tm) product asap. These photos might just push it right off the shelf!

Those pictures make me miss Tahoe. They remind me of all of the summers growing up, vacationing with my Dad. Ohhhh to be so young and carefree again, playing in Lake Tahoe. I loved the pics. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
