Ellie had on her Mini Harajuku dress I got from Gwen Stefani's collection for Target, which I bought last year and knew she'd fit in this dress one day! It's sailor/patriotic cute!
We headed to our favorite little town, Genoa for the Reno Philharmonic that was playing in the park. They played songs from some of my favorite old movies, like, An American In Paris. People sat with blankets and chairs, and brought fruit plates and cheese, picnics and our favorite was the ice cream truck:
Ellie sitting with my grandpa (My mama's dad, and Ellie's great-grandpa) listening to the music.
Me and my grandpa...if only I had gotten more of his Danish genes, and had blue eyes! Who would've thought my Alani would get blue eyes like him!
Then we headed back up to the lake (Tahoe that is)...we stopped to get Rootbeer Freeze's and Milkshakes at The Snow Flake, drove around the lake a bit while Ellie took a nap in the car...
And look at the amazing Lake Tahoe sunset... it just kept getting more beautiful by the second...
We had some mexican food for dinner....and watched some fireworks...
Where did everyone else celebrate?!?
And if your day, was like ours, and filled with a heart that was missing a loved one, I send you extra hugs and love, your virtual best friendy, Kandee
