Bob and I have enjoyed 3 full days with my parents as we explored new places together. Yesterday we drove up to Truckee (about 20 miles I think) and visited the Donner Memorial Park and museum. Do you remember your history? The Donner Party? Not a social event nor a political party! So after that refresher on the westward expansion era, we went to Squeeze In for lunch, and enjoyed their down-home atmosphere and food. Groceries were purchased before heading back to our cozy spot in Squaw Valley at the Olympic Village Inn. Made use of the pool and hot tub, swimming under the moon and stars in the cool air, then warming up around the fire pit. They have a great recreation area here with several big gas grills, seating areas inside and out, fountains and waterfalls, we even played pinball and PacMan! Haven't done that in a long time! Today brings more fun and more people as the wedding starts to arrive! Pretty chilly this morning, not sure of the exact temp but the TV says it is about 30 for a low! Good sweater weather!
