We have been home for 4 days and I still feel like I am recovering from the trip. Overall, it was really fun. The weather was fabulous. You know you live in the Northwest, where you haven't had a warm and sunny day in a full 9 months, when your 6 year old pulls out the shirt she is wearing for the first day of the trip and squeals in delight "Oh, a top-tank!" It has been so long she forgot that it was called a tank-top!!!
The drive time was a bit longer than expected but went very well. All of my activities for my 6 year old were worthless since she has caught a major reading bug and had her nose in a book the entire time we were driving, even when videos were playing!! My 3 year old got a bit frustrated with the fruit loop necklace, you forgot that things are more complicated while sitting in a carseat 5 point harness. So I strung the necklace and she enjoyed eating it. She really liked the puppets and animal magnet boards the best. The girls were real troopers! Can you believe we didn't hear "are we there yet?" one time???? Oh, well I guess I should report we heard lots of "are we at the campsite," "are we in Oregon still" "are we in California yet," "when will we be home"............
We enjoyed our time in Tahoe but could have used another day or two for more exploring! If you want to be bored with more photos click here to see my flickr slideshow of just a few of the hundreds of photos from the trip!
We turn around next week to drive for my family reunion in Montana. I will be ready to not sit in the car for a LONG time after that!!!
