Tahoe - Finally!

When I was growing up my family spent about a week each winter with the same group of people either in Tahoe or in Bend, Oregon. I have lots of memories on the slopes with all of them and they are precious to me. Some of those memories we stayed at a place called Edgelake in Tahoe. It's a timeshare my moms cousin owned. Well, before he passed away, about 10 years ago, he made it known that he wanted to be sure one of my moms kids got to have it and keep using it. Somehow Kyle and I got to be the lucky ones. Although we have been making payments for a while and only looking at it as another bill - we finally completed ALL the paperwork to transfer it into our names and get to start enjoying it.

Last weekend we took the kids up to hang out for the day and check out the new place that hopefully we will build many memories enjoying. It was fun for me because my only memories there were in the winter and I had no idea what a great place it was! This year we got lucky to find some availability the week before Christmas but next year I hope to use our time during the summer... it is so pretty! I'm so excited about it and wish I would have realized how great this place is a long time ago!







This is a bad picture but the place even had a playground... it was so cute and I can't believe I hadn't even realized what a gem this HUGE GIFT is until now.
