Snow Weekend (pt1)

Everyone deserves a Snow Weekend away! And last weekend, Lake Tahoe was our goal. Luckily for us, this trip did, in fact, happen.

But not without the nail biting, dead-stop traffic waiting, CalTrans for updates dialing, and 2nd resort planning moments!

The previous two days brought a good amount of snow/ rain for the mountains and that resulted in mudslides and trees falling over on most highways. We stuck it out and fortune was on our side because we made it . A lot of cars did not. After waiting for previous minor mudslides/trees to be cleared from the road (4 hours worth of waiting!)  a major mudslide occurred on our HWY 50 in a spot we had  just passed. It would have been a little heart wrenching to be told to go home after so much time and effort had been invested in our trek!

I’d say it was definitely worth it.

 

50 ~ HAPPY BIIRTHDAAAYY

My Dad turns 50 today.

You are the best Daddy. I am soooo thankful you are mine!

You are unselfish : Slaving away in the cold 40 degree weather, to put up Christmas lights – because I wanted them.

You love mommy : Always doing little things for her, helping her around the house.

You are funny : Making everyone laugh, we all know who to invite for a good time 🙂

Thank you for always being there for me, I love you so much!

Love, JJ
