Road Trip!

a couple weeks ago we took a road trip to lake tahoe. that's a ten hour drive from portland (without stops)! jeff was behind the wheel the whole way, which meant i was in charge of keeping evelyn entertained. every couple hours, from the backseat, i asked jeff if he needed a break (hoping he'd say yes, please), but he admitted he'd rather drive (and drive, and drive) than sit in the back with an antsy toddler. ugh. the backseat was loaded with brand-new games i bought just for the trip: a doodle pad, a bag of magnetized letters to stick onto a metal cookie sheet, mrs. potato head, tons of play-doh, coloring books and crayons, books, puzzles, and a whole lot of new apps and games to play on my tablet. each activity kept evie busy for about six minutes. she slept for a total of 30.

after eleven hours, we arrived in tahoe city to 20 family members from all over the country, from washington d.c. to texas to san francisco. it was great to be with everyone for a whole week. we hiked, rode bikes, took a sunset cruise, played on the sand and in the lake, barbecued, swam in the pool, played tennis, and just enjoyed each other's company. lots of sunshine, lots of laughs!













leave a little note!
