Easter at Lake Tahoe

Rachel and Jeff surprised us with a special Easter present,

a three day stay at a rental at South Lake Tahoe

just below the Heavenly Valley Ski Resort.

We picked up Jennifer from the Reno airport

and were the first to see the fancy home.

 

 

As soon as everyone else arrived, we took pictures of all our kids

together with Ellen, Austin, Ashley, and Austin,

and with Jason, Maggie, and Carson:

 

 

After singing happy birthday to Jeff

and snacking on his favorite apple pastry,

we called it a night.

 

 

Following breakfast on Saturday, Joe and Rachel went skiing

while we threw snowballs and went sledding.

Later on, we drove to Emerald Bay for more photo ops.

Back at the rental, we had time for pool

and some soaking in the hot tub before bedtime.

 

 

 

EASTER SUNDAY

 

After attending Mass at St. Theresa's Church,

everyone prepared Easter eggs for the big hunt.

 

 

Soon after posing at the fireplace, we released the grandkids by age, about 30 seconds apart.

Alex was grabbing the first Easter eggs, when Ashley charged out the door...

 

 

...followed by Austin who quickly found the golden egg with extra cash inside...

 

 

Carson was the last out the door, but finished his hunt in lightning speed...

 

 

They showed off their findings back on the balcony.

Later on we headed towards Carson City in search of a special sledding spot.

Before our stay ended, we asked Jason to take one final group picture.

Thanks, Jeff and Rachel, for hosting a fantastic Easter gathering.
