Tahoe part 2

Hanging out in the hot tub.

Boys day bike ride. The boys rode the Flume Trail and saw some awesome scenery!

Jon and Steve face off in cornhole!

The girls watching from the sidelines.

We had a couples night out to the North Shore resort. It was basically deserted, but Matt and I decided it would be SO fun to come back during the winter.

The three couples - Jon and Sarah, Matt and me, Lindsay and Jason.

The teeny tiny frog that Jon saw basically in the complete dark and stopped us from stepping on.

Matt's dad rented a kayak and a paddleboard for us to use on the lake. We had SO much fun with them. Matt's always wanted to try paddleboarding... can you tell how happy he is in this picture? :)

Cutie girl staying out of the sun. I like how her hair looks seriously red in this picture... her hair has some red tones to it, but sitting under the orange-colored canopy made it look flaming red. I thought it was funny.

Lindsay and me heading out in the canoe.

Matthew, Emma, and Owen. Love these kiddies.

Jason and Lindsay on the paddleboard.

Nora didn't really like the water.

The second day we went back to the beach, Matt's parents went early and scored us the perfect spot. The little kids had this awesome little pool to play in surrounded by rocks. They loved it!

Nora is a little bit happier about standing in the sand at the edge of the water.

Lindsay and Ellie. Check out Ellie's lake-filled diaper!

Emma giving the boys a free raft ride!

Me on the paddleboard. SO fun!

Jon, true to form, caught several fish and crawfish/crawdads/crabs (I don't actually even know what they were) and built them a little pool. It was quite the attraction for a little while.

The set-up in our perfect spot!

Grandma and grandpa bought the kids ice cream!

Owen figured out how to paddle himself around on this little raft... unfortunately, he was only really good at paddling in circles. He was pretty proud of himself, though. :)

Dance party before the family talent show. Check out Owen's sweet mid-air spin.

Michelle, Lindsay, and Jason open up the show!

Debbie and Steve in their awesome old people costumes.

They did a little scene about the Farrell family many years into the future. It was hilarious!

Emma did some of her gymnastics for us!

Matt, Owen, and I sang "You've Got A Friend In Me" from Toy Story

Lindsay and Jason did a hilarious drumming act

Everyone watching the three girls' music video.

Post-talent show dance party!

Attempting to fish in the Truckee river. This river is apparently very popular - we had probably over 100 rafts float past us as we were trying to fish, which made it kind of difficult.

Jon did manage to catch one pretty rainbow trout.

We broke in Owen's new fishing pole on the river... he was more interested in throwing things into the water, though, and since neither Matt nor I have a fishing license, we just kind of dropped the line in the water, got it wet, and called it good. :)

Everyone went bowling on the last day. Nora sat on grandpa's lap while she waited for Matt and me to bowl.

This is Owen's pre-bowling position. He pushes the ball from here and it takes for-ev-er to get down to the other end. Hilarious. :)

Michelle, Jason, Jenny, and Fij bowling on the fast (non-kid) lane. 

End of the game! We got in the car and headed home from here. What a great reunion!
