TAHOE TRIP ~4TH OF JULY AND RENEWING WEDDING VOWS

 Pretty scary when you are behind a truck towing a truck that is facing you!! For a split second you think you are in the wrong lane!!! Yikes!


This is my cousin, Danette, who is loving on Molly.  They are going to keep her for a month while we have a few more small trips to take in July.


Our next stop was a night with my sister and BIL.  We went out for breakfast before heading out to Tahoe for the July 4th Celebration.


If you have never had the opportunity to visit Lake Tahoe, you have missed a beautiful place.  We have been going to our friends cabin for over 30 years and never get tired of the beauty of God's creation.
 The reason for the 4th of July trip was to help celebrate Barbara and Bob's 50th wedding anniversary and the renewal of their vows on the beach.  Friends and family are gathered, as they go down the board walk hand in hand.

My dearest had the honor of officiating the ceremony.  Several of their original bridesmaids and groomsmen were in attendance.  It was very touching as both of them have dealt with some serious health issues.
 
 After the ceremony, lots of food, fun and visiting under the umbrellas.

 That night as the sun went down we took out chairs to the edge of the water to watch the fireworks over the lake.  Many boats were out to get a really close look.


It was a spectacular show, and I was so busy watching, my camera stayed in my pocket....Sorry!  My favorite was one that looked like a huge waterfall.
 
The next morning, before we all said our good byes and headed down the hill, a friend of Barb and Bobs made us wonderful breakfast burritos on his "disk" grill.

What a lovely 4th of July.....but wait...it's not over.  Come back tomorrow for the final leg of our trip!!

  1. What a special trip and to be able to celebrate a milestone with friends is extra-special.
    When I saw that truck heading toward you... I thought maybe you'd handed the wheel over to Molly! ;-)

  2. The picture of the truck really is unnerving.
    Someday I would love to see the fireworks at the Lake too. The bungalow is in a prime spot.
    Terrific photos.

    1. I love traveling with blog friends, and now hope you are enjoying our trip too. It's a good way to see places we have never been, and probably may never get the chance.

  6. How fun for all of you! Looks like they had a nice turnout of family and friends! Molly looks homesick! Aw. Maybe she was just sleepy. Sounds like you're having a really nice time away!
