here is a quick snap shot of our action packed, never a dull moment, over the top good time!
part one: 4th of July with the Keelings! super great two days in portland, hanging out with the kids, good food, sparklers, chalk art, all around general silliness. we love hanging with this crew! thank g, h, e, m, and g again!
flex! true and luca are total troopers, never a fight, no complaining...just enthusiastic travelers. true enjoyed making some great art during the 800 mile ride.
|3 miles is long way to go for a little guy!|
|mildred, the most photographed woman in tahoe|
|the caretaker's apartment in the courtyard|
|gorgeous craftsman woodoworking galore.|
|the tea house! i was nervous about the kayak to the island, but it was super fun|
|when i was a kid, you weren't allowed to hike to the teahouse! this was my first time.|
|luca (and true) spent a great deal of time skateboarding|
|the only clouds we saw were on this evening. they made for a great sunset|
|the picture does not do this overlook justice. we are way up there!|
|lincoln and nic, enjoying the hard earned reward of silence and beauty|
|flume trail! a tahoe must. my face hurt from smiling|
|aaron at marlette lake, top of the flume trail. he and lincoln are crazy enough to climb using single speed bikes|
|25 years in wedded bliss! my mom and step-monster are really happy together. a perfect match!|
|for the first time, true found joy in the floatie|
|countless hours digging sandcastles with moats|
|luca caught a crawdad without bait! this was a first, and he set him free to live out his crustacious life|
|this is the only bear that luca was happy to see. and the only one we did this trip|
|my favorite sign, at the top of uncle lincoln's favorite trail|
|just another gorgeous vista on my morning ride|
|love riding the trail with these kids on our last day. bitter sweet, but we were all ready for home|
|loading the flex is no small feet. it took me an hour!|
