5 hours by car to get there and 5 hours by car to get back. For a week long vacation that makes plenty of sense. For a short weekend getaway it’s a little crazy, but it was well worth it.
We headed out on Friday and after a looooooong couple hours we got out of a traffic jam for an impromptu tour of the Jelly Belly factory. Sadly there were no pictures allowed on the tour(and I forgot my camera in the car), so I have nothing to show for that awesome part of our weekend. But suffice it to say that I’m pretty sure that every trip to Tahoe will now include a side trip.
We arrived at the lake late Friday night and hurried to get the kids into bed so we could enjoy a nice long soak in the hot tub. Karma followed us to Tahoe and the counter to that short moment was that Little L was up half the night and in our bed the rest of the night.
Despite being exhausted come Saturday morning we pulled it together so we could make the best of our short time in the mountains. M headed out to play a short round of golf with his dad and the girls and I went to a playground with M’s mother.
to get a few family shots.
