Tahoe is Terrific!

Tahoe is one happy place to be!

Very happy, indeed.

My husband camped there with 60 young adults last weekend.

They put up tents all over the place.

And ate lots of food.

And had lots of fun.

Apparently, the cooks had lots of fun, too...the flying pancake variety.

Not Susan, though. She had nuttin' to do with those hot cake hijinks.

(She does have something to do with the instigator, though.)

Saturday morning finds the hikers all geared up for a good time.

The scenery was splendid.

The landscape was luscious.

The terrain was tremendous.

The backdrop was beautiful.

And the magnificence was...yep...magnificent.

(Definitely worth a cell phone shot or two!)

Hey, can I borrow your camera?

I'd like to take a picture of the dopes that actually went swimming...

in near freezing (but crystal clear water).

Yep, this guy was one of them.

(My not-always-so-prudent son.)

(I'm pretty sure these two are laughing at him...)

(These two, however, aren't noticing him at all...)

And these guys are just plain chillin'!

Cool chillin'.
(Dude, this is the life.)

Yep, Tahoe does makes people very happy.

But parting is always sweet sorrow.
(that's a wrap)

My husband and son, on top of the Tahoe world!

What a beautiful, peaceful looking place. I would love to camp there and just look at all the beauty. These pictures are great! Looks like everyone had so much fun. Thanks for sharing them. Hugs

Have I ever seen a bluer blue! I think not. Good music to go with the pictures too! Sue, I really enjoy hearing what you will have next.

Such a beautiful place. It' so awesome that your hubby takes his ward kids camping. Love it.

That's the corner of the world my husband and I grew up in, I miss it. Such intense beauty. We'd go up there every year for girls camp, and later for our 50 mile Adventure hikes. It's the most incredible place, looks like they had lots of fun and soaked it all in while they were there. Lucky ducks!

I love Tahoe!! I went there a few years ago, and I thought it was great. It looks like you had a wonderful time.

That water looks so tempting, so I'm not surprised a few jumped in! Such great memories in the making.

Nothing better than spending time with young adults...so much energy and fun! The scenery is just amazing! I've never been to Tahoe, but now I sure would love to go sometime...you need to frame those pics!

The pictures you got were great- the water looks so pretty, cold, but pretty.

Jessica said...

Oh it's beautiful!!!!

karen said...

Look at your handsome boy (the young one) swimming in the lake! And your other handsome boy too. (He's kind of a hunk. And you can tell him I said so.)

Carolyn said...

I haven't been to tahoe in years. It looks just like I remember it. So does single life (glad I'm married.)

Too darned bad you couldn't have gone with them. I still think it is the saddest thing that you can't take the altitude to even go visit your brother in his beautiful home that you have never seen. The scenery is indeed unsurpassed. That lake is so lovely, just spectacular altogether. So glad they all had such a good time. What a great undertaking. No wonder all the kids love their bishop.

Stef said...

That looks like a ton of fun in a beautiful place. I have only ever driven past Tahoe. Never actually stayed. Maybe next year.

Cheryl said...

The water wrapped itself around me and wouldn't let go. Hated to leave.

Nicole said...

thanks for stopping by with my guest post yesterday, too.
