Tahoe Ski-ing - Feb 2003

The boys came out from England to visit Ali in Febrary 2003. It was really good. I was able to take a couple of days off work and join them at the snow. On their visits in spring 2001 and 2002, I was too busy to take the time off work. And of course I was able to join them on the slopes thanks to the weight loss in 2002. It was the first time I'd really stepped off the diet, and I was terrified about gaining weight. Indeed, I was shocked by my weight after only 3 days vacation - however I soon trimmed up. There was nothing to worry about. I'm writing this 5 years later - and I've never put back any of the weight I lost in 2002.

We really had a good time. We visited the Capitol in Sacramento on Sunday on our way to Tahoe. We got good value Hotel accomodation at the Holiday Inn Express in South Lake Tahoe. Very close to Heavenly Ski Center. Ali and I attended ski school on Monday and the boys went off boarding. Tuesday, we visited Carson City, Nevada and had a drive round the lake. On Wednesday the boys took me, with my new ski skills up the mountain. Gosh, Heavenly seems a good name for this place.

On Wednesday evening we drove back to San Jose. I had to go back to work and the boys had some shopping and things to do in the Bay Area. The vacation was really good. We did a little boozing every evening and then sat in the hotel room and played card games. It was just like the holidays when the boys were young. Happy Families. Thanks Alan and Jamie for making our life complete.
