The Next Adventure











While the girls were at EFY, G had a conference in Tahoe. So D and I went along. We usually do girl stuff, but this was D's time. So we started out with G at the pool, and then he had to go to classes. We had lunch at the lake, played in the water, read our books, and D even took a short nap there! We played pretty hard. That night the conference treated us to a dinner cruise on the M.S. Dixie. D and I even danced! (We will be taking lessons from the sisters soon at FHE.) The next day we went on the High Meadows trail hike. I borrowed a great hike book from a friend, it had hikes for the entire tahoe area, along with how difficult they were, and pretty detailed about how to get there, how many miles they were, and so forth. (thanks, Amy) It was pretty steep, but a nice trail. We really had fun, and although the end result at the top of the trail was not as spectacular as I was hoping, the view along the way was great. There were some really great rocks for climbing. When we got back, we went to the lake again, but G got to join us, this time renting a kayak. All was well until the next day, when I began to feel my age. And by the next day, I had a great time going from down to up, or up to down. So much for thinking I was in pretty good shape! The hike was labeled a moderate level. We will not be doing difficult. The girls joined us later that night, and then after G's classes on Sunday, we came home.

Good Things:

1. Nature

2. Doing some boy stuff

3. Beaches

Hey, I found out the deadline for BYU-I application is December 1st. Sounds like you got to have a little family fun before school starts again.
