Faina - It sounds great. Probably cant go as that is the time my kids get ready to go back to school.
I do have a free AA ticket though....hmmm

Dayenu Apr 24th, 2009 12:21 PM

I you spend a few days in San Francisco getting school supplies, imagine how your kids will brag later in school... hey, I'm an arm-twister :))

Well I certainly plan to attend unless something drastic happens. After all we have to celebrate our birthdays!! Where do you usally stay in South Lake Tahoe?

Dayenu Apr 24th, 2009 01:06 PM

Our stay is limited by Amtrak bus stop. Last time it was at Embassy suites - there is a large back yard for all buses.

In that area, I like Horizon - cheaper, and a nice pool. If the cheapest, Capri is fine, bare bones, but clean.

If anybody wants to share a room, I may be up to it - not sure if my husband is coming or not. As usual, he would not talk about the next trip before completing the one that is planned already (in May).

BTW on the Lounge I suggested Kalani's Restaurant as a meeting-place.

Can't help you on places to stay. We get to stay at DD and SIL's house on the Nevada side. (It's nice to have relatives with a house there !!)

Thereyet, it's school vacation time, bring your son too!

Count me in - nothing more beautiful than Lake Tahoe in the summer!! Dayenu or anyone else (Love Italy!!) let me know if you want to hitch a ride.

I probably will be's a long way to the middle of August but I'm certainly not traveling this year and August is usually hotter than Hades so it's a lot cooler at the Lake, so I'll keep up with the thread. I'll pick Holly up if she can come.

August is not good for me since co-workers with kids all travel that month ... now if the birthday gals come to SF, perhaps the E&O Trading Co. or the Cliff House for brunch?

LoveItaly Apr 27th, 2009 09:31 AM

Hello LindaL, what a nice invitation and thought. If picking me up is convenient for you that would be wonderful. Thank you so much! I will pencil in the date in my appointment book Faina.

Dayenu Apr 27th, 2009 10:55 AM

I will be working on it probably into June. If the kids are willing to drive, we might even make a week out of it, visiting all places around.

And sorry I haven't made a list yet, it's on my mind, just not enough time - don't want to miss anyone :)

Dayenu Apr 27th, 2009 12:56 PM

Starting the list... everybody who'd replied is here on the list, let me know if I missed anybody, all are "maybe" for now

Dayenu Apr 27th, 2009 07:12 PM

and possibly SunflowerGirl :)

LindaL Apr 28th, 2009 02:30 PM

LoveItaly: You are on my way to Tahoe and I would love to have someone to ride with. Makes the time go by faster!! Paula and/or LoveItaly, are either of you interested in sharing a room? E-mail me at [email protected].

Kal Apr 28th, 2009 07:03 PM

Put us down as a def maybe, too. ((Y))

Giovanna Apr 28th, 2009 08:25 PM

Just got home yesterday and have been wading through all the e-mail that accumulated while we were gone, trying to catch up on forum, etc. I have an August birthday too! We haven't been to Tahoe for ages and would really enjoy it. We'll sure try to be there. Please add us to the list as probably Faina.
