After the conference, we headed back up north to Lake Tahoe with a few other family friends for a couple of days. This might be a long post with lots of pictures because we just had so much fun during out time! The last time I had been to Lake Tahoe was just with my family for a few days of vacation about 4 or 5 years ago. I remembered having a really great time and the water being amazingly blue. Although the weather forecast wasn’t supposed to be as clear this time, we still managed to catch quite some sun while out on the lake. We rented a house nearby and spent some time hiking, jet skiing, and boating.
The first two morning, we made breakfast in the house. All the kids were in charge of breakfast for day 2 and I have to say, we cameup with a pretty good meal. Breakfast consisted of berry pancakes, banana chocolate chip pancakes, chicken apple sausages, yogurt berry/cereal parfaits, ham/egg wheat bread sandwiches, scrambled eggs, and an assortment of fruit.
My family decided to go on a walk in the evening and as we were strolling around the neighborhood, a kitten came out of nowhere and followed us home. We tried calling the number on its tag but since it was pretty late, no one picked up. It stayed at around our house for the rest of the evening and through the next day as well until we received a phone call back from its owners. Even though I’m allergic to cats, I couldn’t resist his charm. He was quite the adorable little kitten and seemed so lost.
We rented out a boat for the last full day we spent at Tahoe and did some inner tubing. Thunderstorms were supposed to be rolling in for the afternoon so we made sure to head out early and catch the sun rays. The water was pretty calm and the weather turned out to be perfect for boating.
Tubing took a lot of energy out of us so we headed back to the house to clean up and rest. A lot of us ended up napping for a bit and sure enough the clouds rolled in as the thunderstorms came. It cleared up enough for us to drive up to Inspiration Lookout to take a look at the view and take a few photos.
Before leaving our time at Tahoe, my family stopped for lunch at The Red Hut. Their burgers were really filling and just as delicious. It’s a must location to eat if you’re in the area and of course, don’t forget to order a shake!
If your family is ever looking for a place with some sunshine and water activities, I really would suggest going to Lake Tahoe. Even though we don’t have a dog anymore, this location would be the prime spot for vacationing with pets. There were happy dogs everywhere we went. With content stomachs, we left Tahoe with full and happy hearts looking forward to the next time we would be able to come again.
