My Girls' Weekend @ Tahoe

My blog has been so neglected lately! I've been extremely busy!! My first update is of my 2nd annual Girls' Weekend, which took place last weekend.

On Friday afternoon, my friend Jan picked me up along with a few others, and we headed up to beautiful Lake Tahoe. We were all very excited to get going, and thoroughly enjoyed the car ride. At Tahoe, we each enjoyed our own room with our own bathroom. So nice and relaxing!
Saturday was a rainy day, so we didn't get to do our planned hike. We enjoyed hanging out indoors by playing games, chatting, eating, napping, soaking in the hot tub, etc.
Later on Saturday, we headed down to King's Beach to see a movie, "Angels & Demons". I thought it was very good. Above, is a picture of Lisa & me before the movie.

Part of our group before the movie (Jan, Raimi, Lisa, Me & Holly)

This is a picture of me, Keila & Holly ... one of the many times we piled into Jan's Suburban!
On Sunday morning, we attended the North Tahoe ward. We snapped some pictures outside after church. Here I am with my dear friend, Raimi.

I love this photo! It just shows us laughing and just enjoying being together. We laughed so much that weekend.

Here is the group: Lisa, Jan, Lisa, me, Raimi, Kristin, Patti, Stephanie & Keila. We're missing Holly from this photo. Maybe we can photo-shop her in!

We finally got to see the lake after church on Sunday. Gorgeous! We went back to the condos, had a yummy chicken salad lunch, and then piled back into Jan's Suburban and headed home to our families. I had such a wonderful time. We laughed, ate, talked, played games, ate, talked, laughed and laughed until our stomachs hurt! We stayed up both nights until 2AM just talking. I am so grateful to my friend, Kristin, for setting this up for us to all enjoy. I am so thankful for my hubby's support. Love you, G! ... I think it's safe to say that each of us already have our bags packed for next year!!

By the way, the next time I see your boys, I'm totally attacking them with my camera... Like I have to.. I don't know why, but taking massively awesome pictures of your boys just sounds wonderful..even if the attempt fails.. I will still be happy! haha!
