When I found out that I was coming to Tahoe, it never occurred to me that I would be going to the beach. It especially never occurred to me that if I had gone to the beach, I'd be able to throw snowballs and make snowmen.
After tubing and playing Settlers, the four of us were ready to take naps and "work" on school stuff for the rest of the day. But, in my effort to make Saturday the best day possible, I suggested finding a local beach for us to do "work" at and we found one really close to our cabin in South Lake Tahoe. However, if I had known that there was going to be snow, I would have never changed out of my snow pants and boots.
But! It was such a wonderful afternoon. The sun was so bright and warm when we got there. We spent a good 30 minutes just being in awe of the combination of sand and snow. It was so quiet and peaceful and just as the sun was setting, Michael and Zac showed us their adorable snowman-- affectionately named Wassail. Proud fathers Michael and Zac made him complete with goldfish facial features and Norris' scarf. And he was so popular! Tons of people came up to ask for pictures with him.
After a frenzy of photos with little Wassail, we sat on picnic benches and watched the sun set behind the snow-capped mountains. I loved Saturday.
