A Relaxing Getaway

Oh, Tahoe! First of all, Tahoe is so beautiful. We had great weather too which always makes things pleasant. I went with my friend Kelli and 3 other girls that I hadn't met, one from here in Cali and 2 met us there from Utah. It was so great to meet these fabulous new friends. We stayed at Kelli's place which is basically a cabin in a resort. Here are a few highlights of our fabulous, relaxing weekend.

We hung out scrapbooking and making cards.

We totally pampered ourselves. This is Kaylene, me and Kelli waiting to get our massages. I did a hot stone massage and it was awesome.

In our robes, with our martinelli's, ready for the hot tub.
One day we went in the the lake, it was beautiful.

After the lake we went to Northstar (a ski resort) and walked around. We ended up finding a tasty little sushi place. None of the girls I was with "liked sushi". I am proud to say that I changed their minds (I think). It is all about the soy paper instead of seaweed. They wouldn't do the raw fish, but it was a huge step forward.

It really was a fantastic weekend. It was so nice to wake up whenever I wanted...which ended up being about 7:30 each morning, but at least it was on my own. I was able to workout at my own desire in a great facility, and we even got a private yoga class which I loved. Chatting with girls until wee-hours of the night about anything and everything...mostly our kids that we were supposed to be having a vacation from :) It really was wonderful, thanks Kelli.

Oh and BTW- Ty did just fine with the kids (not that I doubted him :)) I even called one day and he was finishing the laundry. The house was in great condition when I got home too...what a man!

Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend. I love Tahoe too, I need to go there now! Are you guys planning on going to UT anytime this summer? We ALL need to get together, it would be so fun.

OK, so I am so glad that you left a message on my blog. I have been reading yours for months now, and felt like a little bit of a stalker. I know I don't know you that well, but I gotta tell you that I think you are one of the best moms and wives on the planet. It's amazing the things you pick up about a person, just reading a blog:). Your kids are BEAUTIFUL. I always thought it was so funny and wierdly coincidental that both Tyler and I married ex-BYU volleyball players:). What are the odds?
