Spring Break in Tahoe!





Spent another amazing week up in Tahoe for spring break.  That was fun... can't wait for next year...

---------------
Day 1: Kai had his Spring Performance, and we drove straight to Donner Lake.  I squeezed in an evening skate ski.
the spring performance was pretty cute...

stopped at Donner Lake on the way in to stretch our legs.

 Day 2: Sugar Bowl with Metres...


beautiful spring day
Nikko "Up dada, UP!"

after lunch, Metres and I went out looking for gnar/shenaningans.
the Palisades were OPEN!  Wha?  Right?  I'd never seen it open before.  This isn't a pic of the actual palisades, but yes they were open, and yes we did get to ski em.  That was fun.
Day 3- Easter Sunday - started off with an egg hunt!  Then I took the boys back to Sugar Bowl.
Who's ready for an egg hunt!











Day 4 - Started SNOWING last night.  Actually NUKED.  Took the kids sledding on our driveway, while the ladies went skiing at Squaw (Kimbo took Kai), and we went on a sunset lap on Sun Bowl.







Kai is in love with the Funi.

Day 5 - Chimney Sweep!  Metres and I met up with Murph at Squaw and Chimney was open!  We got to do Chimney Sweep... that was awesome.  But tweaked my ankle hard off the fingers...

I switched off with Kimbo mid-day and Kimbo met up with D & CC.
Day 6 - Sugar Bowl with the boys and me on my hobbling ankle...



rode around the block with Kai.


Day 7 - Went to Sugar Bowl, started raining... so we went to the Tunnels... then I sauntered off for a solo evening skate ski.
we parked and took the gondola in for the first time this season...
and met up with this fool...
and we went back to the tunnels... these were the pics that didn't make the earlier blog post...





Day 8 (April Fool's Day) - Sugar Bowl with Thomas & Kai... then the hot tubs with the crew...
