Family, Friends, and Our Favorite Place on Earth! – Ellen Houston

About 2½ hours northwest of Reno, you’ll find my family’s favorite place on earth…Lake Almanor!  We try to spend as many weekends as possible there, but there is one special week each year where we get to enjoy our favorite place with a wonderful group of friends and extended family.  Our kids have so much fun together, as you can see.

This year, my friends and family had a blast doing all kinds of activities.  We enjoyed wake surfing, paddle boarding, and swimming.  Even the little ones tried waterskiing!  They did such a great job, even if it was with a little help.

While most of us were enjoying the water, my oldest daughter did something that no one in our entire family has ever tried – she took a tennis lesson!  I was very proud.  

After all that fun, somehow we found time to watch the London Olympics.  Some of us even pretended to be Olympic divers, but maybe we should have left it to the professionals.

Our week at Lake Almanor was so fun and relaxing, but it went by too fast.  It was definitely a great break and none of us can wait for next year!
