My Trip

AAAALOOOHAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flew back from Reno yesterday, and boy is my arms tired...........tadumdum.

DH and I had a wonderful time. Stayed at the El Dorado.
Took a ride to Lake Tahoe, got lost and laughed all the way home about it. The lake was just so beautiful ringed in snow.
Ten min. after we entered Caesars Palace I hit a $1800 jackpot on the slots. Now that's a good anniversary present.

Good to home.

Where's that darn lake?



Oh, here it is.

So glad your back and that you had a wonderful time. Isn't Tahoe breath taking? We spent every summer up there when I was a kid and it still excites me when we get close enough for that first glimpse of the lake. And yet, I can't imagine a more beautiful place that your wonderful island..Glad it was a special time.

Glad you had such a wonderful time! A beautiful lake! We saw it about 5 years ago as we drove from NM to WA. I vaguely remember it. All I remember was being awestruck by the beauty and we had a great lunch there too. Was it cold?

Wasabiiiiiiiiiiii!!!

Welcome back! Missed you! Lovely pictures... & $1800 is some nice spending money. Ca- Ching. Way to Go. Did you holler & jump up and down? First thing I heard when I walked into the Riverboat (Riverbelle?) Casino in (not Vegas - the other place near Vegas - my brain is shrinking, lol), was OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG OMG.... clink, clink, clink, clink Wasn't me though. How exciting!

Hi Sweetie! Well the first thing I did was stare at the screen to make sure I saw what I saw. Then I yelled 'HONEY" to get my DH's attention. Then I ran up and down the isle like the crazy Hawaiian I am.
