Hanging With the In-Laws in Lake Tahoe

After a jam-packed two days in San Francisco
we headed north-east for Lake Tahoe.
The trip was filled with winding roads
and a small panic attack when I thought we were going to run out of gas,
but four hours later we pulled into town 
with the sun shining bright overhead.
A nice change from the foggy days in the city.

Shortly after arriving, we headed down to the lake for some drinks on the pier.
We soaked in some sun while I tried to not get seasick on the rocking pier.

We don't make a habit of wearing matching outfits.
Maybe we were both inspired by the blue lake?

The next morning I enjoyed breakfast on the deck
before we headed out to the beach.
Not a bad view from my in-laws' house, huh?

I'd never been to a beach surrounded by pine trees
and snow capped mountains.
It was beautiful.  And hot.
Unfortunately my iphone pics don't do it justice.

That night, the hubs cooked his new specialty,
Beer Can Chicken,
while we lounged around
and watched the sunset over the lake.

Before meeting my hubby, I had never been to Lake Tahoe.
Now, whenever we go, I am constantly in awe of how beautiful it is.
Words cannot describe the crystal blue color of the lake.
The crisp air and big pine trees
are such a nice break from the smog and traffic of LA.


  1. Ooooh! I love Tahoe! Was the top picture taken at the Lone Eagle at the Hyatt? That is where Rod and I ate after he proposed to me! It's one of my most-favorite places in the world! Looks like a fabulous time!

  2. You're right, Alex - it was taken at the Lone Eagle. It's my in-laws' favorite bar in town. They're pretty much regulars there. Who knows, they were probably there for your engagement dinner!

  3. Wow! It's as beautiful as I imagined. And that cat is too cute! I just want to snuggle with it!
