Day 8 - Tahoe Queen

Rise & Shine - we had an appointment to sit through a 90 minute presentation where they want you to buy a time share. Luckily Taniya signed us all four up for a presentation together. We all knew we weren't about to purchase any time shares, but we did get a free 3 day stay at any Diamond Something Resort.
We left all six kids at the cabin asleep. Sydney and Peyton woke up first and proceeded to wake the rest of the household. The kids ate and goofed off until lunch time.
We grabbed burgers at Burger Lounge. Ben and I had the Heavenly (Avocado, bacon and cheddar) Taniya and Michael both got burgers with lots of onions (gross). Ben and Michael ate cheezy fries while Taniya and I ate pesto fries. It was over $45 bucks for lunch for the four of us.... No more burgers....
The plan was to take a cruise on the Tahoe Queen but the older kids didn't want to tour Lake Tahoe, so that left Ben, me and the lil ones for the tour.
Taniya, Mike, Nikki, Vanessa, Bianca and Nat all went back to play at the lake.
We found a ice cream shop. Damn I can't recall the name of it but the lady who owned it introduced herself to us and chatted us up for a lil while. She took pictures of Sydney and Peyton. She had lots of blown up black and whites all over her shop and she wanted to add them to the wall. Peyton had a chocolate goatee while Sydney ate a freshly baked lemon cupcake. The girls sported their green gap ice cream cone tank tops. I'm waiting for the email of the photo from the lady and her daughter. Wonder if it will be plastered on the wall next time we're in Tahoe. This isn't the actual picture. This is just one we managed to take as well.

The 3 level Tahoe Queen was nice. There were some plush leopard print high back hairs on and assortment of other types of chairs. The kids wanted to be on the top outside level, it was the best place to see the tour. There were actors on board who mingled with us and did a few skits. We drank Shirley Temples and snacked on the three hour adventure.

No naps for the girls. We all met up at cabin where I hoped I'd get the lil ones down for a nap. No luck. Taniya and the bigger kids all went shopping - Bianca got a new skirt. Then they messed around, went to minature golf and check out some chocolate factory.

Ben and Michael were at the Casino again.
Sydney, Peyton and I enjoyed another walk and then the solitude of the cabin, them catching up on cartoons while I read a lil bit. Really no solitude or relaxation, but hey it was just the three of us.
Taniya brought dinner back.. pasta for the kids and her and I ate Falafala's (not sure how you spell it or say it, but we ate it) Then Taniya and the big girls ventured out again giving me and the lil ones more alone time.
.....lights out. it's all a blurr after that.
