While we don't have pictures, we'll always have the happy memories.
I had driven the kids to a pumpkin festival in Lake Tahoe. It had said free admission and listed all these cool things to do. Well, of course, you get in free, but it cost money to do the cool things. And it's Lake Tahoe, so the things weren't cheap.
Needless to say, our money could be spent better. So we decided to head for a small hike. We did about 6 miles (not the entire way) on the Marlette Lake Hike over by Spooner Lake.
Man!!! It was gorgeous!!! The yellow autumn leaves were blowing in the wind. It was magic. The kids were not very happy to go for a hike and I had a small "mean mom" fit in the car. After an attitude adjustment, for all including myself, we were ready to enjoy our time together. And so we did!!
We whacked corn whackers with sticks, held hands, talked about Disney memories, played name that tune. We looked up into the sky and were rained on by golden leaves. It was a lovely afternoon together.
We were starving by the time we got back to Reno so we feasted at Whole Foods (honestly, our favorite place to eat) and headed to the library for a fantastic and mesmerizing magic show!!
Spellbinders, the library performance, was hilarious!!!!! The magician had amazing tricks and I swear my mouth was open the entire time!! An hour has never gone by faster!!!
The day ended with popcorn, pumpkin cookies, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Yes, the most bizarre movie ever. I have no idea how anyone can enjoy that movie, although I will say I do like the music. Hooray for lovely Saturdays will my sweet babies!!! The truly are my best little friends.
