Where should I begin? My lovely nephew and sister came to visit for the better part of August. I remember the evenings preparing home cooked meals as my sister is a great cook of authentic Lao food. She made dishes I haven't tasted in years.
Then we took our nephew to Lake Washoe (he LOVES to be outside, especially by the water) but the lake was a little murky for us to swim in (because it is fed from underneath)and as late as it was in the day, we didn't think it was worth the drive to Lake Tahoe (it's tough to find parking over the weekend) so we found a place by the Truckee River and were entertained by the crawdads we found.
