So I figured either one of 2 things was happening....either it was a virus and she was over it or it was the beginning of a relapse. If it was a relapse, well, this might be the only time she'd see snow. If it was a virus, then she was past it. So we loaded up the Honda and took off for the mountains.
It was a glorious day! The weather was warm, around 65 degrees and it was crystal clear and sunny. We stopped at a snow park up by Donner Summit. The kids had a blast....well, Rico was pretty whiny, somehow he didn't realize that snow was cold! So he kept complaining about the snow making him cold.
Marielle hiked back quite a ways with Daddy, while I took Rico back to the car to warm up.
Then, we went up to Reno and spent the night at Circus Circus....the kids won a ton of stuffed animals playing at the midway (yeah, and we need stuffed animals 'cuz we only have about, uh, 200 or so left).
Then we raced home ahead of the storm! It was a fun trip!
Stay at home mom, doing her best, day to day, raising 2 kids, with a husband who is working 2500 miles away. I like to save money and want to share my tips with you, along with a bit of our daily life.
