Honeymoon in Lake Tahoe

We decided to take our honeymoon in Tahoe for 2 reasons. One, because we spent the honeymoon budget on our rings..hehe, and two because my parents have a timeshare so it was the economical way to travel. Plus we figured we could always travel somewhere more exotic for an anniversary...especially since we spent most of the week in the room ;D I do regret not taking more pictures because we did do some really cool things there. One day (Saturday) we hiked down to Emerald Bay and also to the lower level of Eagle Falls. It rained on us a little during the hike and on the beach but it was still beautiful and fun. 
The next day (Sunday) we drove to Virginia City which made for a nice day trip. We road the train, took a tour of Collar Mine and saw most of the sites there. The day after that (Monday) we drove around the lake to Kings Beach. It's the beach my family always visited when I was a kid and I wanted Deke to see it. We hung out there for most of the day swimming, picnicking, and just laying out. On the way back we drove through Camp Richardson where we got ENORMOUS ice cream cones. I asked for a single scoop and Deke asked for a double...we had NO idea that his alone was over a pound of ice cream. 
On Tuesday we took it easy and hung around the resort for the day. We played racquetball, swam, played pool, and went hot tubbin. In the evening we went to the Forest Buffet on top of Harrah's.
 Wednesday we planned on going parasailing but our appointment was cancelled due to high winds :( we were really sad. So instead we went to breakfast and hit the casino. Later that day my parents came up with Tyler so we could spend some time with him before heading home. We had to get back early because my work was under staffed and my boss needed me there. So my parents kept Tyler and finished out the week there. Before we left we all went to dinner and went miniature golfing. Tyler had just finished a golf summer camp the week before so it was time to show us his skills.....I want my money back lol
In the end it ended up being a really wonderful trip and I'm truly blessed to have such a wonderful husband. I'm excited for our future together :)

That ice cream is INSANE!!! Sounds like you had a great time! Congratulations again, I'm jealous of your week. It sounded so relaxing and fun, and the Suicide table was interesting too. Thanks for sharing!

Love the pictures. We took our honeymoon in Tahoe, too. I agree with you about saving the distant, exotic places for anniversaries. You have years together!
