Lake Tahoe

In early July, Matt and I took a little trip to Lake Tahoe with his family. We stayed in a house on Donner Lake, just outside Lake Tahoe. It was beautiful, the ideal weekend getaway.

Craig, Kim, Matt and I rented bikes and rode 22 miles (11 down, 11 back) along the southwestern edge of Lake Tahoe. Here we are admiring the incredible view at the southern end after a delightful picnic of peanut butter & banana sandwiches.

Enjoying Mexican food at Martha's Kitchen. I LOVE Mexican food.

Kat, Nate, Craig and Kim doing the Insanity workout! The 22-mile bike ride earlier in the day was enough for M&M.

Matt jumped from the highest cliff at Angora Lake! (See orange circle.) The water was FREEZING. Notice the packs of snow still present on the mountains...

Pouring over the incredible menu at Wolfdale's in Tahoe City. One of the best meals we've ever had! We called the chef out to compliment him and he brought us a special dessert. :)

Family picture at Wolfdale's. (Unfortunately you can't really see Lake Tahoe behind us.)

Rowing on Donner Lake...where the infamous and unfortunate Donner Party once stayed.

Lots of bocce ball.
