Mark's parents came to visit in late June/early July, and we took them up to Tahoe for the first time! The weather was nice, and the kids sure did have fun at the beach!! I wish we could go to Tahoe much more often, I had big plans of making it up there multiple times this month but with Mark's knee injury followed by surgery, it made it nearly impossible to get up there. But at least we made it this one time!
It was actually a little on the cool side but the kids didn't seem to mind. Jackson was busy collecting rocks and throwing sand, and Riley liked exploring and even putting her feet in the freezing
Jackson hadn't seen his grandad since we moved here from New Zealand over 18 months ago. And Jackson was instantly in love with Grandad!!
It's funny, Jack can be my wild and crazy little boy, but he's quite timid when it comes to slides. He does not love going down them, and often needs quite a lot of convincing or a hand to hold. But normally once he goes down and realizes he's okay, and that he actually LIKES it, then he wants to go down again and again and again.
We made a special visit to the Children's museum in Reno! Of course the kids had a blast!
They had this HUGE climbing structure that Riley really wanted to go on, and she did really well and climbed all the way to the top! But she sure did NOT want to come down, and we created quite the scene trying to convince her it was time to go. Let's just say there were tantrums and tears and lots of eyes on me seeing what I was going to do next...
Meanwhile Jacky had fun playing with the balls in the big water table.
And of course we HAD to visit our favorite ice cream shop! Even Jack got to enjoy a sorbet!
Such a fun, quick trip to Tahoe!!
