Somehow in all the hullabaloo I forgot to blog about our trip to Lake Tahoe at the end of last month. Better late than never, no?
Every couple of years my family does a huge family reunion, and this year it was held in Tahoe. I had never been before, but it definitely lived up to the hype of how beautiful it was!
We tried to do a little bit of everything- hiking, relaxing, kayaking, shopping, eating, and just enjoying time together with family we don't see that often. It's always been tradition to hold a week-long poker tournament, but so many of my cousins were old enough to play that we only ended up playing one night. It didn't effect me too much- I'm terrible at it, so I generally avoid it as much as possible.
I loved spending time with my extended family, but also enjoyed being with my little three person tribe as well. It's a blast watching Margot explore and experience things for the first time, so I think that made the trip even better.
It's funny, before I got married I was worried that I wouldn't be able to travel as much, but now I just travel with my best friend in tow. Then when I was pregnant, I was worried we would never do anything because of the baby, but we just bring her along and have an even better time than we would have without her. Big shout out to my parents, though, for watching her when we needed a break!
The family reunion trip was a huge success, and I would love to visit Tahoe again someday. Maybe next time we will camp!
Do you have any favorite vacation spots or family trip traditions?
