Lake Tahoe!

We went to Tahoe this past week and it was outstanding. We had so much fun. The photos I took barely do any justice for how breathtaking this area is. We had perfect weather, lots of laughter, awesome company. We met up with much of my mom's side of the family. (I did not take very many photos.. Jami took most of the family photos. I was bummed about that!!) It was great to see them. They are loud, funny, love to drink- we sound like family! ;op The trip went by fast but it was just wonderful to get away. I guess we cannot complain too much with Mexico less then 4 weeks away! But- I missed Brian, but we hope to go back sometime in the near future. It was so great to spend some quality time with Jami; since she moved to Denver we just do not get that chance very often! Here are a few of my favorite pics!

Lake Tahoe in her glory. The lake is 22 miles long, 12 miles wide and at it's deepest point it is 1600ft deep. It is truly blue as well- not your tradition lake water. Sad to say, but this lake puts Lake Dillon and Grand Lake to shame. It is just stunning.

Coming into Tahoe!

Jami and I.. We stopped at nearly every pull off to see the view!

Yep... you can see to the bottom. It is awesome.

Jami and I at GarWoods... It was gorgeous stop on the North Shore.

And yes you can imagine the fabulous boats that call Tahoe 'home'.

I loved the giant trees...

The Accident

The Fourth of July turned out to be more eventful then we had planned, as well as an unplanned trip to the ER. (Which most I think are unplanned trips. ;op) But long story short Brian ended up going head first into the pool 5ft deep at my brother's condo. The impact was so severe that he split his head open to the skull and ended up with nearly 100 stitches. The cut is nearly 5 inches long. The accident has been very sobering for myself and Brian. You never think this will happen to you. We are so grateful that Brian's injury was only a massive cut. All of his doctors kept telling us he should have broken his neck and it is a miracle he did not. Our lives would have changed forever. It makes me cry just writing about it. I do not know what I would do without Brian in my life. He is such an amazing man and has been pretty tough through the whole situation. He has been off work all week; resting and taking it easy. The C Scan came back perfect and his healing has been another story. His swelling has gone done almost completely, his black eyes are nearly gone and his stitches are out- the cut looks outstanding. Thank you everyone who has been praying for Brian. Especially- thank you to Jami, Dan, Nick and my parents who have been so concerned and helpful during the accident. In closing, love the ones you love most everyday. Do not let the sun go down on anger, because you will never know what tomorrow may bring and you could be left wishing for the past.

PS... I will not post a photo of his head- it may make someone weak in the stomach.
