Father’s Day at Lake Tahoe

Since we were away from home on Father’s Day, Jarrod didn’t get to open any gifts on Sunday.  He opened them on Saturday before we left on vacation!

Instead, we woke up Sunday morning to a gloriously beautiful day on Lake Tahoe.

Is there any better place to eat brunch and kick back and relax?

Oh, and don’t forget a morning workout.

We also took a ride on the Tahoe Queen, Lake Tahoe’s only authentic Mississippi paddlewheeler.

Our cruise was a 2 1/2 hour scenic cruise to Emerald Bay.  The views were stunning!

Two and a half hours is a long time for two kids though.  Charlotte wound up catching a nap while Trenton and Daddy pretended to make volcanoes.

After our cruise, we walked over to a nearby restaurant for dinner.  Daddy was feeling extra nice on his special day and let Trenton and Charlotte have ice cream for dinner!  The kids were in hog heaven, and Mommy and Daddy actually got to enjoy a quiet meal!

After walking back to the hotel, it was time to get changed to have some more fun in the water.  This time the swimming pool.  Trenton loved it, but Charlotte didn’t want to put more than her toes in.  And I couldn’t blame her; the water was really cold!  We wound up walking to the beach to take in the wonderful view again too.

What a wonderful Father’s Day!  We love you, Daddy!

Happy Father's Day to your husband!
I LOVE Lake Tahoe! I have many happy memories there from when I was a kid. The lake is just stunning! (And I've been on that same boat!)

Thanks, Rebecca! We had a wonderful time in Lake Tahoe. What a beautiful place. My 3 year old is already talking about wanting to go back for Christmas! And I don't think it will take much arm twisting to convince Mommy & Daddy!
