One of the highlights of this summer was our trip to Lake Tahoe. We actually stayed in Truckee most of the time then at the Chalet View Lodge in Portola for a few days for a family reunion. There's so much cool stuff to do in the area, especially checking out the local towns. We managed to find an awesome thrift store in Portola (hello, $5 cowboy boots!) and an amazing breakfast joint in Sierraville (hello, biscuits and gravy!). Although it was a brutal 10 hour drive, it was totally worth it. And Mason was a CHAMP in the car. We had a week filled with family, fun and relaxation. Any time I can manage to get in some lounge time, it's a success in my book.
