Last weekend, Tadd and I were able to fly out to Miami Florida to surprise my younger sister Katie and spend some time with her as well as watch her play (and beat) North Carolina. We surprised her on Saturday afternoon, it was wonderful! So much happiness! We just had a relaxing weekend together, visiting the campus, shopping, watching sports, including the Miami football game on Saturday afternoon as well as Katie's soccer game versus North Carolina. We then spent time with Grandma Bella and lounged a little more. It was a great weekend and so fun to see Katie in her college element and of course bring her a nice surprise of love and family!

Tadd and I went along with our friends Devon, Jesse and Aida up to beautiful Lake Tahoe. We headed up there on Friday after work and got to the cabin around 9pm. We lounged around and chatted Friday night away. Saturday morning, we woke up around 9 (Devon and Jesse got up a little earlier with the 3 year old) and made a delicious breakfast of eggs, hashbrowns, and pancakes. We then got ready and headed out to Squaw where we walked around a bit and made pretty candles. We then headed back to Kings Beach and ate some lunch at Steamers. Then we went back to the cabin and watched a movie (The Proposal, finally)...and relaxed. After that we headed to the store for dinner and Sunday food. When we got back, the games began. Sequence and cards! Devon and I dominated in sequence but were not so lucky in the card game Hand & Foot. We thought we would let the boys win the card games since we did not leave any room for them to win in Sequence. It was a fun evening of competitive games. Sunday we got up and organized everything as well as more games. We made the best lunch...the sandwich from Spanglish. If you have not seen that movie, see it, but check out the sandwich that Adam Sandler makes, ya, we replicated it! Then back to Squaw on our way out to pick up our masterpieces and back home. Such a great weekend, but definitely too short. Pictures to come!

Tadd and I, along with our friends, Devon and Jesse and their daughter Aida, headed up to Apple Hill last weekend to enjoy the nice weather and change of season. Tadd has never been there, and it has been many years since I visisted. We got up to Apple Hill around 11:00am and parked in the apple orchard. We then walked around, took some pictures by the pond, sampled some yummy apple cider, and then ATE....and ATE, and ATE. It was hilarious how much apple food we consumed. We started with a sample of apple and apple pumpkin butter on a slice of apple, while we were waiting in line for our apple fritter and our dozen variety apple donuts. We then headed over to the fudge factory in which we enjoyed a nice caramel apple. We walked around a bit more, bought some kettle corn for the ride home and then went to another location to purchase an apple pie! We had a really fun time just walking around and eating! Overall, though we had a fun time with our friends.
