Valentine Weekend in Lake Tahoe

Can you believe I've never been to Lake Tahoe?  Well, all that changed this weekend and it was more beautiful than I ever imagined!

 The beautiful old pier that led to the boat that took us out onto the lake.   Maddy was really nervous about walking on this because it had no side rails.

The lake.  Pretty huh!  The water was amazing... black in some places and turquoise in others and, of course, emerald colored in Emerald Bay.  I like the reflection of the snow in the water.

We stayed in South Lake Tahoe and took the gondola up to the top of the mountain where the girls posed for a quick photo with some of the 13,000 other people who spent their Valentine's Day on the top of this hill.

Here's Gwen nailing her Daddy with a snowball.  This was just one of many assaults.

Sledding on a saucer was fun.  We took lots of photos but these are two of our favorite.  Gwen above and Maddy below.

I don't think any of us have ever seen a snow covered beach!

We'll probably come back in the summer and see what Tahoe offers when there's no snow.  I bet it's beautiful for totally different reasons!
