Endless Summer

Our family has a tradition of spending one summer week together. This was started by my mom, when all of the grandkids became of an age where table manners were stabilized, sleeping habits were consistent and diaper bags were replaced with proper luggage! 

The first of several gatherings took place at the Gros Ventre River Ranch, in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. First stop is at Dornan's to stock up on wine. Next stop for a bite at the Snake River Grill before heading into the Gros Ventre Wilderness...

Our other favorite summer hang out is Lake Tahoe. Since I was a small child, our family has spent countless summers and winters in this extraordinarily beautiful place. It's a place filled with generations of families who have found a quiet place to reconnect with each other and to continue the storytelling of first downhill runs at Squaw Valley or Homewood, 6:30a water skiing on a lake of glass, or brunch at Sunnyside with a cocktail for the adults and a shirley temple for the kids...

  Finally, there is the tradition of having a completely spontaneous moment that is often orchestrated by my brother, David. Chester, CA is a sleepy town outside of Lake Almanor. Every year, Chester hosts a no-nonsense Fourth of July Parade. Without preamble, David enrolled our family in the parade! After a quick consult with everyone, we towed our vintage jeep up to the rental cabin, converted the trailer into a float, loaded up on beer (Chester is blazing hot) and were awarded First Place in the Group Division! Cheers to summer fun...
