'Muff'in Dome

Mountain Air

We were fortunate to spend a little time a couple weeks ago a month ago (I’m SO not on top of things these days) with my family in a large house in Truckee. We don’t get everyone together too often so it is nice when we have the opportunity. {Although we were still missing two of my brothers who live in So Cal. 🙁 }


Raphy in Reno

Reno Aug 2014 2

We drove up to Reno one evening to visit a good friend of my father whom all of us children have known since birth.

A wonderful BBQ was enjoyed, a bit of badminton played, and a baby passed around.

They had some amazing hammocks which everyone had to test out.


tickles!Great for capturing someone to tickle!!

My parents rented a wonderfully spacious house where we were able to spread out. {Sadly, I didn’t take more photos of the place.} The four of us had one room to ourselves where we were able to relax at night.

It was definitely a week for catching up with longtime friends too. My mom’s college friends stopped by the house on their way back down home from the mountains to visit for a bit. We went to the brewery in town for lunch and brews.

To end our short trip, we headed to the lake near Steve’s parents’ cabin for a quick swim and to soak up some sun.
