First stop: Washoe Lake. I’ve only been here maybe two other times with no wind. How gloriously beautiful.
I truly needed a deep dose of Mama Gaia today and this was perfect for grounding and processing.
Thomas walked barefoot and dug in the sand. It was perfect for him too. He and Lillian had a huge argument as we were readying to leave.
I sat down, took off my shoes and socks, and slowly buried my feet and hands in the soft, cool sand. I was instantly relaxed and brought into this wonderful moment with Thomas. It’s difficult to even find the words to describe.
Last stop: Ice Cream!! Vegan Coconut Mint and Just Nog for Thomas and Vegan Coconut Mint and Just Chocolate for me! Of all the flavors I’ve ever tasted here, the Coconut Mint tops the list now! Love the texture and flavor – tastes like a Jr Mint candy, only better! We ate our ice cream with the amazing view at Audrey Harris Park.
Thomas also had a half sandwich and I had a cup of potato salad and macaroni salad.
Thomas and Camilla September 2017 Date Day – Thomas wanted a sandwich from Icecycle Creamery. He loved how they cut and made a heart shape with it and he enjoyed every bite. I had a few bites of fresh mint ice cream on top of a scoop of chocolate before Thomas claimed it! Yum!
Part 2: A visit to the new VibesUP store. I was drawn into the store this morning and told Thomas about. He wanted to check it out. He LOVED it!!! Amazing store, amazing energy, amazing products, and amazing mother and son running the store.
Then, at Thomas’ request, a rainy walk at Virginia Lake. And last stop was to get Thomas a couple pair of new pants. With this cool weather he put on pants last night and they were way short and a bit tight. Oh my gosh! He’s grown so much since Spring and shorts weather.
Thomas and Camilla August 2017 Date Day – Swimming and playing in the amazing, soothing, wonderful, and refreshing Lake Tahoe. We love you Mama Lake.
I’m so glad I was in this amazing spot when I received certain news this afternoon. What a blessing to have this magical and healing lake to absorb and wash energies away. Incredibly grateful and blessed.
Someone had already pulled the picnic table into the shade and we enjoyed a yummy picnic at waters edge. Another reason I enjoy this restaurant so much. Amazing messages on our food containers!!!
Bonus: Someone else had already attempted making a raft out of fallen limbs. Oh my gosh!! Thomas had fun with that. He wanted to bring it home. I’ve always said “yes” to bringing home sticks, limbs, and rocks. But I don’t think this would fit in the car!! I suggested we put it to the side so it could dry and come back for it later.
We went back just after sunset and got the package he so badly wanted to bring home. It needed to dry out a bit. And, it’s a lot longer than it looks! Almost didn’t fit!!
Field trip and Thomas and Camilla June 2017 Date Day.
First stop – Field trip! Tour of Reno Airport Traffic Control Tower arranged by the awesome fellow who is teaching a group of homeschoolers coding and robotics. No pictures allowed inside so this is what we got!!
First we toured Atlantic Aviation’s building and hangars used by private plane owners. Then the control tower. Incredibly interesting and what an amazing view!!!
Next, we headed back to Atlantic to see the coding instructors little airplane. As we were headed back in the building a pilot asked if we wanted to tour a business jet. So, we did that too!!! Thomas enjoyed it …. a lot!!! xoxo … ✈️ … Thank you. And, bring us more, please. xoxo …
Next stop: Humane Society to share love with cats and rabbits. My eyes were sweating with all of the sweet souls with sad eyes asking to be loved.
By the time we left Thomas was feeling pretty sad about the huge number of them. I helped us both by pointing out that they were in a safe and cool place with volunteers and employees who care for and love them.
Then home for lunch! Next was ice cream at Thomas’ favorite ice cream shop. Salted butterscotch for him and 1/2 salted butterscotch and 1/2 dark chocolate for me.
Enjoyed our ice cream at Aubrey Harris park, enjoying the beautiful view. Plus, looking at the Air Traffic Control Tower where we were this morning. You can just barely see it in one of these pictures.
Thomas and Camilla April 2017 Date Day – First Stop: Gigantic sandwich for Thomas and yummy roasted red pepper bisque for me. Two scoops of yumminess for Thomas for dessert – chocolate and cookie roulette. xoxo
Thomas and Camilla April 2017 Date Day -Second Stop:
Little Washoe Lake – “I just wanna lay in the warm sand.” – Thomas. …… So, we did.
Can you spot the itty bitty spiral shell? And, check out the piece of bark that has shaped itself to match the mountain range. Part 2
First stop was lunch at Icecycle Creamery.
Helped him drag a huge limb into the water and he went to work. Last set of pictures.
Thomas loved our date day hike yesterday. Some of his thoughts while we were way up there … “I could stay out here forever. I feel like I can do anything. This is the best day of my life. I am so glad that we did this. And he thanked the sun for warming us (it was cold)!!”
Now he wants to go hiking on the Tahoe Rim Trail and become a member of the 160 mile club. I think that sounds like an awesome idea for this young man … and his Mamma!!
