Wedding at Tahoe

I know it's been way too long since I've posted. A lot has been going on!

KittyStitches had a spell in the vet hospital, using up yet again another one of her nine lives!

But the big news is that my NieceStitches got married! The wedding was at Lake Tahoe (Squaw Valley, to be precise), and it was so beautiful. Bride and Groom are perfect for each other. The wedding was so beautiful, and there was even a nice, gentle snowfall during the reception! You can see some photos of the wedding at my SisterStitches' blog, Frayed Edge, which can be found on the sidebar of my blog or here.
This is DaughterStitches and myself at Squaw Valley, sitting in this funky big chair!

Not being a skier myself, I found certain things about Squaw Valley interesting, like chairs made of skis!

And what appeared to be parking meters for skis!

I guess this is where you "park" your skis if they aren't so expensive?


  1. Your thought about the unsecured ski parking spot reminded me of a few times when I went skiing with what I considered embarrassingly old, outdated skis. Supporting my kids recreational pursuits often meant sacrificing my own desires for the latest and greatest, as we all know. I remember leaving my skis outside a building with the hope that someone would actually think they were cool enough to steal, and then I could have a valid reason to get a new pair! Sadly, it never worked! I always emerged from my warmup to find the same old lame skis and poles!

  2. That's funny, SisterStitches! I can totally understand what you're talking about!

  3. Love the picture of you in the big chair with your daughter! SOOOO cute!

    Hope kitty is doing alright!

  4. Thanks, Harmony. KittyStitches is doing some better. The wedding and being at Tahoe was so much fun!

  5. The coin operated ski locks I have seen give you a key, similar to the lockers at a public swimming pool. The open type are for those who have their own locks or are willing to take a chance. Usually the ones you have to pay for are located closer to the lodge. I gave my ski lock to my son for his bicycle when we moved to Phoenix. Gail
