So we're back to the grind after an absolute blast this weekend. It started off with a bit of a glitch when Chris and I were trying to get out of Houston. Our flight was at 9 am. We checked the Houston traffic before leaving the house at 7 am and headed the 30 mile drive to the airport. We got on the Beltway and traffic was stopped. A car fire up ahead was causing a major traffic jam. We inched our way until we passed it, but it made us 45 min behind schedule. Still, we arrived at the airport check-in desk at 8:32 am. The agent kindly informed us that TSA regulations require bags to be checked 30 min prior to take-off. Two minutes late and he wouldn't budge. The next flight out to Reno was at 9 PM ... a 12 hour delay! We decided to head to the La Quinta just down the road from the airport, enjoy the pool, take a nap, and rehearse our synchronized swimming (next up rhythmic gymnastics - you won't want to miss it!)

We finally arrived in Tahoe at around 1:00 am, which was 3 am our time. We figured we'd sneak into our vacation rental so as not to wake the rest of the group but to our surprise they greeted us with open arms at the door. The weekend went uphill from there and we made a ton of memories that we'll keep with us forever. It's amazing that 4 couples who have never formally met can stay a weekend in the same house, share two bathrooms with 8 people and still get along beautifully. We had such a crazy fun weekend and haven't laughed so hard in a long time!

Ok...now stay tuned for the next adventure which will start tomorrow at 5am....
