Lake Tahoe!

We had a fabulous vacation, I am still working on unpacking and doing laundry, but it was worth it! Taylor had been working non stop (literally 7 days a week) since Feb. with out a day off, and he was able to take 9 whole days off for our vacation, it was amazing to beable to spend so much time together with our families!
We spent most of our time at the beach and the kids loved it!
Grandma B. taking Brynne for a ride!
"Camp" Taylor and his brothers spend most of there time snorkeling, they were in the freezing water for hours catching crawdads, it looked so fun Erica and I went and caught a pincher-less crawdad too!
It was great to see all the cousins play together, they had a blast!

Brynne and Maddi decided to pose AFTER we tried to take a big family picture, I'll post some of those when I get the edited pictures! Besides swimming we spend time at the cabin Ann and Wade rented playing Psychiatrist, Bang, card games, and learning to play poker, and of course eating too much.
We stayed in a really nice hotel after the Broughton reunion (we found a great deal on travelocity!) We were just tourist, and went to look outs around the lake and visitor centers.
Then my parents came up for two nights so we got to see them too!
We had a fun dinner at Hard Rock Cafe

Kenny is in this picture...i'm talking to him on the phone :)
We went on some fun hikes
Then back to the beach one last time!!

We wish we were still there but had to come back to try to save our lawn and garden from drying up! Thanks to all our family for making it a great trip :)
