We did a lot of swimming and in the gigantic and gorgeous Lake Tahoe and lots of sunning on various sandy beaches.....
We went for really LONG and steep hike, where we got to climb on big granite boulders
We even saw a tree that was over 400 years old (one of many)
At the end of our long and steep hike, we saw a castle!
We did some awesome mountain biking and we even saw a baby bear and her mom. That made us really nervous so we got out of there pretty fast-like.
After a long and hot climb on our bikes up a hill, we found a totem pole
The totem pole inspired us to make our own live totem pole
Grammy took us crawdad fishing!
|be free little guys, we don't want to eat you|
and we fed the blue jays, keeping them fat and happy
we ate lots of ice cream! just about every day! Luca preferred chocolate, True went for mint chip.
|luca wore his ice cream too|
we rode our bikes on the truckee river trail and stopped to throw rocks at the rafters (well, not really, but maybe on accident)
we walked along a sand bar out to a for real island that said we weren't supposed to be there, but we think it was probably ok.
we think Tahoe is quirky, but charming. like this fence of skis!
so much activity left us pretty tired, but we insisted that Grammy read to us every night
thank you to Grammy and Grumpa for hosting us and playing with us and feeding us!
