My Parents' Visit to Tahoe!

Happy weekend everyone! 

I'm SO happy today is Friday. Cam actually had to go out of town for work this past Sunday and he got back late last night, and I'm really glad he's home. My parents were in town for the first part of this week, but they left to head back to Michigan on Tuesday morning. Since that time, I've been busy busy with work as always as well as getting things done around the house, and so I'm looking forward to another relaxing weekend in Tahoe!



On Monday I shared some Instagram snaps from my parents' visit, but today I wanted to share a few more photos from last weekend. My parents had gorgeous weather while they were in town, and we definitely tried to take advantage of it as much as possible. We went off-roading (Cam's idea) and stand-up paddleboarding (my idea) and both were a lot of fun!

Saturday morning, we drove to the top of Genoa Peak...
Such amazing views of the lake!

Of course my parents had to get a pic too :)
Cam wanted to take this one...

After off-roading Saturday, we headed to the beach to enjoy the sunshine. I really wanted to go standup paddleboarding one more time before winter, so we rented a board and my dad had lots of fun trying it out. (Don't worry Dad, I left out the action shots of you learning...hehe)

First day of fall...gorgeous!

Just as I was going to take this picture, a bird swooped in!
It was definitely a little bit windy, but we made the best of it
I really love standup paddleboarding, it's so much fun!

Another successful day on the lake!

Trying to enjoy our Tahoe summer as long as we can :)
I'm so glad my parents got to come visit at such a beautiful time of year, September has been an awesome month here in Tahoe! As for this weekend, we actually have more visitors coming to town--Cam's brother and sister-in-law are coming to Tahoe because my sister-in-law is running a half marathon here on Sunday. (I also thought it would be a good idea to sign up for a race, so I'll be running a 10K...and I've run maybe three times this entire summer? Whoops...thank goodness it's a run/walk as I have a feeling I'll be doing quite a bit of walking!) I'm really looking forward to spending time with more family this weekend and enjoying our beautiful hometown! Have a great weekend everyone! Xoxo
