Maybe a ~little~ late… Tahoe pics from LAST winter!

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

Well, Thanksgiving seems to officially mark the beginning of ski season, so it felt like a good time to post some pictures and videos from LAST winter. We were fortunate enough to rent a ski house in Truckee (Lake Tahoe) and host a number of visitors. Although the winter of 2014/15 was the worst on record for snowfall in Tahoe, that didn’t bother our new learners at all. They appreciated the warm weather and they only need one beginner slope to be open to make the most of their new skills. Avi made great progress (earning a season pass!) while Ezra, who was only four years old, announced “I think I’ll try again when I’m five” but nevertheless enjoyed sledding, snowmen, and family time.

We’ve posted a new album in the Photo Gallery but sorted it chronologically in the list of albums (so it is not on top). You can find the 2014-2015 Tahoe album here. Also, not exactly related to skiing, we were treated to an impromptu performance one evening in Tahoe, which we’ve also posted here.

Fun in Tahoe with Auntie Robin!

Boo! Halloween 2015

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Halloween 2015 fell on a Saturday (next time: 2020) and you have to make THAT count, so GFW traveled back to our old haunt: 22nd St in the big city! We had a great time with our old friends and neighbors trick-or-treating, eating too much pizza and candy and homemade Halloween treats, and watching a movie in the garage. A couple of weeks before that, we traveled with the same group to the Pumpkin Patch for hay rides, live (kids) music, face painting, pony rides, haystack play space and, of course, the old-time train ride. We hope that everyone had as much fun as we did, now captured in the Photo Gallery.

Best holiday ever, of course!
