So, we spent a few hours in Virginia City and spent the rest of our time in Lake Tahoe. Here are a few pics from our trip.
Chocolate/Candy store in Virginia City.
This was definitely a sugar addicts dream....or nightmare!
I just died and entered Chocolate Paradise!
Best buds since they were in diapers!
YES!!! Look what I found at the store...a bean salsa that you can feel safe to eat and not worry about any repercussions. I know what I'll be serving at the fourth of July Barbecue!
And we'll be eating this when we look at the fireworks. The only sound effects that will come out that night is the actual fireworks!
Boys will be boys.
It was a gorgeous Day!
Renaissance Man and Moe refused to have their picture taken here, so my nephew graciously posed with this life size horse statue. I think the boys were starting to get embarrassed that I was acting so "touristy."
Moe loves his ice cream!
Moe was excited to see the cowboy skit that he enjoyed when he was 9 years old. This is the look that you get from one of the actors when your cell phone rings in the middle of the skit!
L.J. and Moe were getting tired posing pictures for me all day, so I asked this cowboy to give them some "motivation" to keep posing.
When you go to Virginia City, you have to go on a camel ride.
Renaissance Man got so cross eyed from all the fun he was having on this camel! (R.M thought my expression looked too staged and phony...well, duuhhh of course it is. I had to pretend I was galloping on a camel!)
We spent a few days in Lake Tahoe after spending a day in Virginia City. The boys resting on the pier.
There's something about breathing fresh air, looking at a beautiful view, that inspires you to do a little jig! Who says you have to stand to be dancing.
We're back home, the bags are unpacked, and we're back to our busy schedule. And when I start to get overwhelmed, I think of this picture and it makes me smile.
Have a Great Week!
