One more Trip to Lake Tahoe

Since school started this week, we were itching to get up to Lake Tahoe one more time.  We made it happen last weekend and had a another great day at King's Beach.  The weather was sunny and warm and the sand felt great!  It got a little breezy in the evening as we ate our dinner on the beach, but that didn't stop the kiddos from playing and swimming.  I can't believe that summer is already over.  Here  we go with our 2nd year of living in CA.

Yuba River exploring

After camping we spend the entire day exploring different parts of the Yuba River.  We had 3 different spots along the river that were amazing!  We started right by our camp group with a fun little cliff jump and swimming hole.  Turner was brave enough to jump in with me off a big rock to start off our River day.  Then we packed up and hiked to Emerald Pools.  There were huge cliffs at this spot, but the kiddos opted to play in the little swimming hole and little rock slides.  We grabbed lunch at a small pub in Nevada City after the pools, then finished out the day at another swimming hole with rope swings and fun little rapids for the kiddos.

It was a great day on the river and all 3 kiddos fell asleep on the drive back home.  They were exhausted and it felt great to spend a weekend out exploring!

Summer Camping

At the beginning of the summer the kiddos made a little list of things they wanted to do this summer.  We had already marked off the majority of the items, but camping was still on the list.  We finally planned a little trip up to the Tahoe National Forest and went camping with some friends.  The kiddos were in heaven and it was great to get outside, have a fire and enjoy the outdoors!
