My trip to California and Nevada

Just returned from a trip. I started out by flying into Sacramento, where I was picked up by Karen Jackson. I stayed at her lovely home in Fulsom on Thursday evening, and we were joined by Sue. Friday morning we drove to Lake Tahoe, to meet up with some other stitchers from the Threads of Life board. We stayed in a lovely home that belongs to Susie's family. The view from the top floor was incredible! The photo looks a bit hazey due to the smoke from all the fires in California.

We had a great time, stitching and eating and laughing. I got to cook my famous vodka sauce one evening, and it was a hit!

Sunday morning we had brunch at Harah's and tried our luck in the casino. I didn't do so well, but we didn't stay very long. After cleaning up the house, we took a drive around Lake Tahoe before heading back to Karen's house in Fulsom and then having dinner with her family at the Old Spaghetti Factory, a restaurant that I remember from fencing trips with Kristin. Monday morning we did some antiquing in Old Town Fulsom before Sue headed off to visit family in the bay area, and I headed back home to Des Plaines.

I got to have dinner twice with the best looking fellow in all of California. Wade (Karen's grandson) is almost 2, and we had a great time with him. He is going to be a real heartbreaker when he grows up. He is already such a flirt!

Special note for Trey: Karen's kitchen has a shelf with lots of egg guys! She has almost as many as you do!

Dude, we have a lot more egg guys than that. :-) We need to put up a second shelf because we have shelf-less egg guys...
