Where to this Christmas??? Hitting the Slopes in South Lake Tahoe

Happy Holidays from Family Adventure Guidebooks

My regular readers may have been waiting for a follow up post about a Mexican getaway this past  Thanksgiving.  I was overruled by three kids who were rooting for a white Christmas.  Our family hadn’t made a trip to the snow for almost five years, and my little guys had never made a snow man or a snow angel.

So instead of a tropical Thanksgiving we spent a snowy week before Christmas in South Lake Tahoe. Getting there and back was quite the adventure.  This was major roadtrip and I have lots of tips to share.  We stayed in South Lake Tahoe, skiied the fun and affordable Sierra at Tahoe, and generally had a great time. 

We drove home on Christmas Eve, stopping for a beautiful Christmas Eve Children’s Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Santa Clarita.  (Thanks to our spirited five year old Jared with a penchant for making up his own religious songs a trip to mass requires the assistance of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.  She was with us that night.  Jared even made it up on the altar to listen to the sermon!)

 I have a lot of great info to share, but am a little under the weather today so I’m going to sign off.  Hopefully everyone had an incredible holiday.  Here’s hoping for a fun year of travels for 2010.

Happy Trails,
