I was looking at our family calender trying to plan out the kids spring break activities and noticed that Dustin had two consecutive days off! Since they were on break and Dustin was off as well I wanted to take a mini family vacation. We narrowed down our choices to either Monterey or Lake Tahoe. We let the kids decide and they all chose Lake Tahoe =) So I researched places and found Soda Springs had a little area dedicated to just kids called Planet Kids! It was $25 per child but it included tubing, skiing, snowboarding and a couple other kids activities that they had. I thought that was a great price considering other places charged for admission then also charged for renting snowboarding/skiing equipment. First thing the kids wanted to do was go on the Tubing Carousel. This was pretty much like a regular carousel, except instead of horses the kids sat on tubes and got pulled on the snow.
But there was one that made it to the top!!!
Here are all the kids going down the hill one by one!
Look who’s doing it all by herself!!!!! She was great at balancing……………must be from all her ballet
He wasn’t too pleased =( Also, while Dustin was with the other two kids, Arianna was an AMAZING helper!!! She took care of Laci and took her tubing, on the carousel, made snow angels and snowballs with her =) I’m so lucky that she’s such a great big sister and willing to always help me with her siblings without complaining!
After we were done playing in the snow we headed over to Heavenly to check into our hotel, have dinner and walk around the shops. One of the places we always go to is Nestle and buy the kids cookies before heading in for the night. As we were walking around the kids saw a Betty Boop statue and wanted to take a picture LOL
It was FREEZING so we didn’t stay long. Just took a couple pictures then headed back home. It was a quick trip, but it was nice to get away with just our family even if it was only for a little while. The kids can’t wait to go back again when Connor is bigger so that we can do more things and stay out longer.
