I'm a retired school teacher and husband is a retired general contractor. We have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. We built our vacation home at Lake Tahoe. When we go to Tahoe our family likes to hike, read, and bike. Once in a while we go out to eat but usually cook at the cabin. At night we like to play family games.
Since this is a vacation home I am sorry to say that we will not get to meet you. The upside of this is that the cabin is devoid of clutter from people living there.
