As our summer continues with our craziness of travel and to do lists that seem to multiply like a hydra we took a break for the 4th of July. We went to Tahoe to hang out with family and relax. The first day we had in Tahoe we hiked up to Angora Lakes, two mountain lakes that had wonderful colors and were extremely cold. At the second of these lakes we had the chance to rent a stand up paddle board and drink lemonade. We took advantage of both of these things and had a relaxing day of hanging out around the lake and taking turns on the board. Definitely a welcome change from running around. The scenery was amazing and the company was great. As it was the fourth we couldn’t spend all the time at just one lake, so we headed back to the condo, got ready and headed to lake Tahoe to see the fireworks. All in all a wonderful 4th of July.

Had to include this, as proof that mom was there. Always elusive, endemic, no flash.
