My cousin and her family live on a farm outside of Bend and the kids had a blast playing with their cousins and watching the cows and chickens. And Nate got a haircut! :)
Joe and I just sat around and drank all day missing our children. Just kidding! We went out for ice cream shakes one night, mixed drinks the next and had a wonderful coffee date using our free drink coupons from Starbucks as well. If you are going to get a venti drink, you've gotta have the time to sit and enjoy it!
The big thing that we accomplished was biking all the way around Lake Tahoe one day. We were pumped and excited and ready for it in spirit, but not really in body. I guess next time I ride 74 miles, I might actually train for it. I'm sorry there are no pictures of the beautiful views from all around the lake... we (read: I) were just too tired to stop and take a photo... and that is saying a lot for me and Joe! But we made it with only a few tears shed. ;)
Looking back on this post I realize that there are a lot of exclamation points!! But it truly was something to be excited about. Thank you heaps and heaps Grammie and Gramps for blessing us in this tremendous way!
