In September we got the chance to visit Lake Tahoe for a small family gathering. Laurie’s parents, her uncle Ken and aunt Dell, and her Grandma Knottingham were all in attendance. It was a rare chance for a meeting of four generations down the matrilineal line, a much photographed occurrence. In addition to meeting her Great-Grandmother for the first time, other highlights included Telia’s first hike (around Spooner Lake in Nevada) and a first boat ride (a cruise on the Tahoe Queen). The week went by all too quickly, but it was a beautiful trip and full of many great memories.
