We plan all of our own travel. We carefully choose our destination, where we stay, and how we spend our time. But for three days in December, everything was going to be different.
Our daughter, Anna, invited us to join her and her two kids (our grandkids) on a 3-day getaway. Sure, sounds like fun, we said. And from that point on, we decided that it was their vacation, and we’d enjoy whatever she and the kids wanted to do.
We only had one request. Could we walk 2 blocks down the street and cross over into the state of Nevada?
We crossed the street and entered Nevada. Done. Now we could go back and pick up where we left off, with another round of skating. If we had taken a trip to South Lake Tahoe on our own, it would have been completely different – but not better. We loved hanging out with Anna and the kids. We snapped photographs, we sledded, and threw snowballs. Sometimes it’s good when someone else plans the trip and we just go along.
