Around 7 that night we drove the couple miles to North Star Resort to check out the New Years Eve festivities. It was pretty freezing cold, but we were all pretty bundled. I kept worrying about Jackson being cold, but he was probably the warmest of all of us. There was a band playing, ice skating, and an announcement that fireworks would be at nine. Score. It was an amazing show. Better than the fourth of July. So fun to see the large evergreen trees and glistening white hills as the fireworks lit up the night sky.
Mostly we just relaxed, played a few games, ate some yummy food, and hung out. Cabin trips are the best kind of trips because you don't feel the need to really do anything. Ben and I did attempt to go to the Tahoe Tessie Museum (tale of the cousin of the Loch Ness Monster or something). After we parked and walked around for about five minutes around the location my iPhone said the museum should be at, we decided to go into a little shop to ask about it. Turns out it was torn down some time ago. SO we got Ben an awesome pair of bear mittens, which he rocked to his first day back to school today.
Overall another great Tahoe trip. It is so fun to have relatives with a beautiful cabin in Tahoe because I know that the memories will keep coming. We hope to get up there once or twice before winter ends. And soon my Ben will be hitting the slopes with his little cousin Dylan. So fun.
