A Quick Trip to Lake Tahoe
I joined my parents and my grandparents on a three day trip to Lake Tahoe. It was to celebrate my Dad's upcoming 60th Birthday in a couple of days.
My grandparents had not been there in years. They were really looking forward to it since my Mom said she use to go up there all the time with her family when she was a teen.
The first day we just spent some time in the lake since the hotel was right on the water. Due to the drought, we had to walk a mile to get to deeper blue water.
My grandmother always enjoyed gambling but hasn't had the opportunity to do so in many years. After dinner my Mom and her sat down to try their luck. I joined them but I don't like to gamble so I just sat there watching. My mom turned away to talk with my grandmother and I hit the bet one and spin buttons. Then I said "Hey Mom, look". It came up 7-7-7...and we immediately hit 'print voucher'....I won $85.75 at Harrah's. When we went up to cash it in, we met a beautiful Romanian girl named "Corrina" who was working there for the summer....she has one more month in the U.S. I hope to hear from her :)
Today we made a stop at Emerald Bay on the way back home. What a beautiful sight it is.
I had a great time and the weather was wonderful all three days. It was fun being with my family celebrating my dads 60th birthday.
