Lake Tahoe...but first

I'd like to thank my friend Muranda Barker for giving me a little Blogging 101. Muranda gave me lots of great tips and pointers. And after an hour or more, I was finally able to upload my pictures. Seriously who knew it could be so difficult to post a picture. Well Tim has a pretty nice camera so all his pictures were to big etc. so I had to resize them. I now know that I need to take pictures with our other digital camera for blogging and not Tim's nice camera. Thanks again Muranda for all your help and patience with me, I greatly appreciate it!!

Last week we were able to go and spend some time in Lake Tahoe with Tim's family. That was our first time going there. It was absolutely beautiful. The Lake was this amazing blue color. Anyone that has been there knows what I am talking about. If you haven't been there I definitely recommend you go. It was lots of fun hanging out with Tim's family. We spent one day at Sand Harbor. Tim, his dad Kerry, Mary, Cam and Nancy, all went rock jumping. The water is very very cold so they are all very brave. Here is a pick of them coming back from rock jumping.

Tim's Uncle Dale and Aunt Margaret brought the Kayaks for everyone to enjoy.

I thought this picture was so cute of the kids I just had to post it. I can't take all the credit for the great shot. It was Mary's cute idea.

Sunday after church we decided it would be fun to drive around the lake to Emerald Bay. We stayed at Kings Beach, which is at the North shore of the lake. Emerald Bay is by the South shore. So yes we drove around the whole lake. The drive was a little longer then what we had planned, (yeah we didn't pack any treats or snacks) but I like Tim's optimistic approach when he says, "That it was all worth it after seeing this view."

No matter where we go there is always time to squeeze in a golf game. Tim's Uncle Dale and Aunt Margaret are members of the Montreux Golf and Country Club. Their beautiful house backs up to the 18th hole. We were able to go and have dinner with them at the Country Club and then Tim's uncle was nice to take them golfing on Monday. Tim absolutely loved it, and was really excited to go and play.

We had so much fun and we wanted to say thanks again to Dale and Margaret for showing us such a wonderful time. It was nice visiting with you guys. We hope we can visit again soon.
