Photo Friday:Snowmen in South Lake Tahoe

January 29th, 2010 by bsmith | 3 Comments | Filed in Snow Vacations

Since snow conditions continue to be great up the in Sierras, I thought I would share a few pictures for our South Lake Tahoe Adventure over Christmas.  The snow was very powdery so it didn’t create optimal conditions for a traditional big snowman, but Justin and Destiny managed to put together these very cute ones using found objects and some dried cranberries that we had bought for snacks.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in South Lake Tahoe, a hotel I would highly recommend.  The patch of grass in front of our room had been transformed into a winter wonderland.  We could send the kids out, keep the curtains open, and keep an eye on the snowman building, snow angel making, and snowball fights, without getting chilly…awesome.  Our kids favorite part of this hotel is that it also offered doughnuts with breakfast.

If you have a long weekend head up to South Lake Tahoe for a fun ski vacation.  Checkout the prices at Sierra at Tahoe.  It was by far the cheapest ski resort a short drive from South Lake Tahoe, and for the most part  our experience was very good.  I’ll share more of our Sierra at Tahoe adventures and misadventures in a later post.

Please stop by Delicious Baby’s Photo Friday Blog Roundup.  Looks like she visited one of my favorite places in the world.  Makes me homesick!

Happy Trails,

Photo Friday: What My Kids WON’T Be Doing on Our Next Vacation!

January 8th, 2010 by bsmith | 2 Comments | Filed in Ski Adventures, Snow Vacations, Uncategorized

Is it just me or do the words “Snowmobiling Kids Drive” strike terror into any other parents hearts?  Maybe if you live on a Minnesota farm things would be different, but for my San Diego kids they will be licensed drivers before I let them get behind the wheel of a snow mobile. 

Anyone else see a funny sign on one of their adventures?

Happy Trails,

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,

Bridget
