Our Reno Rendezvous 2014 Recap

For the last three weeks the family and I were  in Nevada. I am originally from there and that is where The Hubby and I met in college, so we make an annual trip down there to see my family and so that The Hubby can tend to his business.

 

It’s not really a vacation, though. The Hubby stays in Reno working and the kids and I primarily stay in in another nearby city with my family, though we did make it up to Reno on the weekends to see friends.

 

We crammed a lot into these three short weeks and below is a little glimpse of what we’ve been up to!

A nice thirteen hour car-ride deserves a treat or two, don’t you think?

Once we arrived, it didn’t take the little ones longl to convince Grandma for a pedicure.

We spent the night with friends (a few times!) and stayed up late playing cards and talking by the fire… (Can you guess what game we are playing? I have a HORRIBLE hand.)

IMG_4702 We had a great time seeing our family and friends while in Reno. In fact, it made us miss our old lives back there. But, it feels GOOD to be home. I’m just about done unpacking and getting everything put away… only to re-pack for the lake next week!

Summer livin’!

What is your favorite thing to do with your family in the summer?
