Weekend Family Visit

Rachel, Leah, and Emilie have come to visit! We are so excited.

M asked me this morning, 'How many minutes till they come?'

'Well they won't be here for another 5 hours, M', I replied.

10 minutes later...'Now how many more minutes?'

'4 hours and 50 minutes.'

'Oh this is going to take forever!'

When they did get here, we headed up to Virginia City. We walked the board walk and made our way into the Bonanza Restaurant. Oh my gosh...the food was so good. Brandon ordered the Blackened Chicken Alfredo and the sause was so thick and creamy. It was so good. I ordered the New York Steak Sandwich and talk about mouth watering! I have never had a steak sandwich before and this was sooooooooo tasty. A and F ordered the yummiest cheeseburgers. M and K ordered tasty grilled cheese sandwiches. Everything was so good. Rachel and the girls ordered salads.

When we got home, Leah, Emilie, M, and I went to play tennis. M was the perfect ball girl. She had perfect form too. I told her next time I'd have to get her a little tennis skirt and pay her for getting all the loose balls for us. She was great. We had a great day.

Monday, we spent the day in South Lake Tahoe. We took the girls to Sand Harbor in the morning and stayed till about 1:30pm. The kids didn't jump off their rock today because of the windy and the waves. Something we are not accustom too. There was also a photo shoot for the new Olympus Underwater Camera. Kind of cool. We mostly basked in the sun. Which was nice.

Then it was off to Stateline to see where Brandon works. We walked into the Del Sol store for Emilie and the Nestle Toll House store where Grandma bought everyone a treat. Rachel and I got the Peanut Butter good and really rich. Emilie and Leah got the Chocolate Chip Sandwich...filled with sugary cream. F, M, and A got sprinkled cover Sugar cookies. And K had the Butterfingers Brownie. Talk about tasty. We saw the Gondola, Cold Stone (Leah works at one), Cinna-Bon (the cinnamon smelled sooooo good), and the fountains where the kids ate their lunches and ice cream last summer.

Brandon beat us home and Rachel decided that I shouldn't have to make anything for dinner because we were all so tired from our long she went to Pizza Factory and brought home dinner. Thanks, Rachel.

This was a short visit but we really enjoyed having the girls come and visit. Next year we hope they can switch out their Timeshare for Tahoe. That would be so fun. Thanks again for coming, girls. We had a lot of fun with you and will miss you when you leave.
