Tahoe for the 4th!

The days before the holiday were prep days, with trips to Costco, supermarkets, and Party City. We drove from San Francisco to South Lake Tahoe on the morning of 4th of July, with a quick lunch stop in Sacramento at Roxi Deli & Grocery.

JC found a rental house in Tahoe Keys with a nice patio and dock that was great for hanging out and playing some beer pong and golf ball toss. Naturally, dinner consisted of beers, burgers, and hot dogs. I tried my hand at some cocktail mixing, making a strawberry vodka drink.

South Lake Tahoe is known for having a fantastic 4th of July fireworks show. We were able to watch the fireworks distantly from the Tahoe Keys neighborhood. The official website has a list of recommended viewing spots.

After the fireworks, we gathered around a portable fire pit on the patio and made some s’mores and played Catch Phrase. It was fun and relaxing fourth and a nice start to the 4-day weekend getaway.
