Tahoe take 2

We had a fantastic week in Tahoe! skiing, show shoeing, hiking with the pups & great company! What more could you ask for!
One day we loaded up and went snow shoeing! The pups had a BLAST!! and were tuckered out the whole next day still! Here they are anxiously waiting to be let out of the car!Even me and my big belly made it up the mountain at 9,000 ft no less!The views were great!But it was SO cold and windy the guys started to dig a shelter! Ned and Emma were just as cold and were in there helping!just about the time they were done they realized it was really only big enough for one person in each... and Trine & I had had enough and were ready to head down anyway.... While they were out skiing every day I took the menagerie of canine out for hikes. I found a great trail though the woods that they could explore where I wasn't too worried about running into other people!They had a great time wrestling with each other all week!and playing with snow balls!and most definitely curling up by the fire at night... as we all did!Drinks in the hot tub were standard practice in the evenings.... too bad I couldn't join in for either!There are a TON of skiing pictures... but I'm determined to get Alex more involved with this blog so I'm going to see if I can make him post them!


The start of our 2010 Tahoe adventures...

We started out the winter ski season with a 12 hour drive to Lake Tahoe. Now this drive is only supposed to take 7-8 hours, but we got stuck in some major traffic going through Donner Pass. Turned out that since they got so much snow dumped on them the week prior- EVERYONE was making the drive out there.
We spent the weekend with some Coastie friends from here that had been down there all week. It worked out well for me to get a weekend out of the house. Alex was going to be driving down to start his week with Bobby and the Wolfes and Richards were heading back on Sunday. So I kept Alex company on what turned out to be a ridiculous drive- and then hitched a ride with Val and Tyson on Sunday. Tyson made his own shot-ski for fun festivities!

The rest of the pictures are from Bobby & Alex... I'll see if I can get him to sit down and write about the week. But for now the pictures will have to do!

Shavin' the mutt

Every couple months or so we give Hanna a haircut. It cuts down on the fur balls that fly through the house as well as (we think at least) keep her more comfortable- seeing as how she is ALWAYS panting! This time in particular we also did it because we will be heading to Tahoe with them for a week and since she is the weirdo that she is likes to lay down and roll around in the snow- which then accumulates in big ice balls on her long fur- it's much easier on us to clean her off with short hair.
Ned of course could not be without attention- it was cold out in the garage and I don't think he really liked being out there- but the possibility of us sneaking out and leaving him behind was too great for him to go and snuggle in his bed.
