Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday!!

Wow, what a great place to spend your 30th birthday . . . the beautiful Lake Tahoe!  It was predicted to rain today, but we had lots of snow showers instead.  The locals called it "snain,"  when it doesn't know whether to rain or snow.  So instead of skiing we spent the day in town shopping.  We visited Squaw Valley USA (Home of the 1960 Olympics) and went in all the shops at the base of the mountain.  Squaw is a huge ski resort that we have skied in trips past.  It is very difficult terrain with lots of bowls below the peaks.  Next we went down to town to eat at a pizza shop that overlooked the lake.  It was very good.  Then we shopped some of the shops on main street of Tahoe City.  This area is much like Gatlinburg, TN with neat locally owned businesses.  Finally we came back to the house for a great meal of Sassy B's brisket and birthday cake.  As you can tell from the pictures, we never travel far from our El-Rey traditions.  Jon successfully smashed the whip cream all over my face.  Happy Birthday!  Thanks for all the wishes, it was a terrific day in the mountains!
