Tanya's Daily Scoop CURRENTLY TRAVELING IN: LAKE TAHOE
Do you wanna build a snowman or how about a snow fort?
HOWDY FOLKS! In case you haven't been following along, we are spending the week up in Lake Tahoe - playing in the snow!
Yesterday, opting to spend the day outdoors having snowball fights and sledding. Which btw was mounds and mounds of fun!
The snow was perfect for these activities, we climbed up and then tried to stay on our saucers as we slid down - however, not always being all that successful, getting laid out in the snow instead!
Once we were exhausted by the climbs and the falls, we decided that it was time for a good old fashioned snowball fight!
At first it was a no holds barred wild game of throwing snowballs, but then it became more calculated and we built forts in preparation on the snow war that was brewing!
I just got a snowball to the head! Thanks guys!
Then after making and throwing hundreds of snowballs, we got a bit soaked and were ready to head on in and warm up.
We headed back to our condo for a short little break... Up next was our reservation at the sports court for some tennis and basketball. Sure you can say that I love being active and that I've instilled it in my kiddos! Although they generally don't mind taking breaks!! LOL
Today we are off to hit the beautiful slopes of Heavenly. Check out the pics tomorrow to see how this resort got it's name!!

W2GW: Flowers, Food & Films in NYC & Long Island
HAPPY HUMP DAY! Mid-week already!
While Tanya is off on yet another trip, I've been staying home nursing my cold all week. I'm a big believer in old school remedies and I just keep drinking a non-stop supply of hot water with lemon and honey.
It really does work. I also drink aloe juice as part of my daily regimen, but when I'm sick, I increase my intake.
Anyway, I think I'm on the mend, but I still feel terrible.
