You may have noticed that we missed a post on Wednesday and we are so sorry for that, we have just had very limited access to internet here in Sochi. We’ve been having the time of our life courtesy of our sponsor Eat Cookies For Breakfast and wanted to share some of our favorite moments with you!
(We heard Sochi was one of Putin’s favorite “tropical” spots and therefore only packed shorts and swim suits. Luckily, someone loaned us some of these cool rainbow colored wind breaker suits!)
(Our hotel room lost our reservation but they did have some open space in the hallway with one blanket and pillow. Brittany tried to keep warm with her bourbon but instead kept me up all night with drunk laughter, I guess she was making the most of it!)
(The receptionist at our igloo let us know the water was unsafe to drink so we decided to hit the bars and rehydrate with ice cold brewskis instead!)
(We scored some discounted tickets to a new event but turns out “Zamboni” is the ice cleaning machine and not a sport, no wonder they were so cheap…)
We are so excited for the 2014 Sochi Olympics to get started! Go USA!
My dad had the idea of an adventure he could take me and my step mom on this past Sunday. We were all for it and hopped in the car with him. They have a second property out in a very small town where they will retire some day. It’s nestled in a handful of very small, quaint towns. One of them is Mokelumne Hill, better known as Moke Hill. My dad had seen an episode of Hotel Impossible that featured a remodel of the only hotel in the town so he wanted to go see it and have lunch there. I’d have to say it was one of the best burgers I have EVER had! After lunch, we grabbed some ice cream and ventured the small street while I snapped some photos. If you’re looking for a fun drive/day trip, this is the place.

(Then we headed down to Moke River which is beautiful)

(I can’t explain how beautiful I think Spring is)
(The beautiful back roads)
This day trip made for a great drive and time spent together. Mokelumne Hill is a small hidden gem tucked away in the foothills. Check it out if you are ever nearby!
