Tahoe Day Trippin’

Good morning! There’s so much work that needs to get done today, but I want to blog first since it’s still early.

Yesterday, Jeremiah & I finally used our passes to go snowboarding. We bought them in early February because we had two planned trips that didn’t work out because of all the snowstorms that were happening.

We drove straight to Sierra-at-Tahoe from Sacramento & it only took us an hour & 30 min. vs. 10 hours!!!! That’s how long it normally should take 😩

Museum of 3D Illusions

Over the weekend Jeremiah & I checked out the Museum of 3D Illusions that opened up in San Francisco. It doesn’t seem to be as popular as the other pop-up art museums/installations that have been coming to SF like the Museum of Ice Cream, Color Factory, Candytopia, 29 Rooms, etc.

My sister had visited the museum when it was in LA & mentioned that it does seem to have less popularity than the other ones she had experienced & heard of.

You can buy tickets online through their website & they also have deals for students, teachers, seniors, military, etc. To purchase the tickets with the discount, you have to purchase them in person at their front desk.

Also, expect parking to suck as it is right across Pier 39 which is one of SF’s popular tourist spots.

When The Weather Isn’t On Your Side

What should’ve been a fun weekend in the snow with the kids ended up being a total bust.

I feel awful about

  1. how the weekend went
  2. being sick in bed with a really bad fever

We all ended up being stuck on the mountain for 10 hours because of accidents that kept occurring. We stopped by Sacramento to get our snowboards & food. Once we got there, we looked at our maps & it said it would take 3-4 hours to get to Tahoe, which ended up being a totally false because of all the accidents that kept happening. I think one of the reasons traffic was flowing real slow was because cars were driving in one lane when there were two.

Before the year ended, Jeremiah & I went to the Museum of Ice Cream with his family as a gift to his parents from us.
We thought it was going to be exactly like our first visit, but it was very different.
To enter, you go through the gift shop instead of walking down the stairs to the ice cream vault.

I was worried that Jeremiah & I wouldn’t be able to do this tradition. I’ve mentioned it a couple of times that this is my favorite holiday tradition. We normally go to the one in San Jose, but they didn’t have as many time slots as they did last year, so we went to the one in SF.
I’m not sure if we plan to always go here from now on, but I did think it looked so much more fancy than the venue in San Jose.
