First of all, word out to the Whites - we miss you guys!!!! Hope your trip to Las Vegas was a blast!
John returned this morning after spending the night with Jeff and Laura at about 9:15. Thankfully, he was willing to sacrifice a little more sleep and delay his nap until this afternoon so that we could get out of the resort area and check out Heavenly Village down in South Lake Tahoe. He's currently fast asleep as I write this, while I watch perhaps the last game of the college world series.
Heavenly Village is a cute little shopping area built around the gondola ride that takes you to the ski resort - all the way up to 10,400 feet. We weren't originally going to foot the price tag to take the kids on the ride up the mountain but ending up succumbing to the adventure of it, and we're glad we did. Perfect lower-energy activity for the day.
So, here's some pics of the family finally together, finally able to have a day "vacationing". GOOD TIMES.......

And, here's the lake....
