To begin, they arrived on the afternoon of the 4th of July.
|Arriving to Sacramento!|
That evening we went out and enjoyed a firework show over the river. Glad the pyrotechnicians did a good job and our show didn't end up like San Diego's.
Thursday was Lake Tahoe Day! Mitchell and I had never been before so we were excited to experience a new part of Cali. We drove up in the morning, had lunch on a beach off the lake and then went on a Duck Tour! Our vehicle was an amphibious boat that can drive on land and then become a boat when you go into the water. It's a little odd driving down a boat ramp into the water. Tahoe is absolutely beautiful and definitely work a trip in the summer or winter!

To understand the title of the blog, please read the following stories:
While at lunch in Tahoe, I mentioned we could maybe go get some fro-yo before the duck tour. Greg looked at me a little puzzled and asked what fro-yo was. I explained it was frozen yogurt. We were quiet for a little while then Greg laughs to himself and shakes his head. We ask him to share what is funny and he says, no, it (the joke he just made in his head) was too bad to share. You should know Greg Martin makes a lot of jokes that few people find funny. They are usually pretty cheesy but I still think they're funny. We got it out of him that he was thinking if you had frozen donuts would it be fro-do (like the LOTR character)? After a morning of bad jokes (in Mitchell's opinion) we laugh about the fact that fro-do was too bad to share but all the others were good in Greg's opinion?? So for the rest of the trip any time Greg made a joke that wasn't funny, Mitchell would say, "That beat fro-do??".
Also in Tahoe, we were discussing the cost of the Duck Tour when Greg said we could just put it on his bill. Ha, get it. He also told this joke: A duck walked into a pharmacy and said to the pharmacist, "My lips are quacked, I need some chapstick. You can put it on my bill." I thought it was funny.
Lastly, while we were at church in the middle of the sermon, while it is dead quiet, Greg sneezed but he didn't want to sneeze on the people in front of us so he tried to block it by pinching his nose. Well it sounded exactly like an elephant and it was loud! Haha, Mitchell and I looked at each other and tried to not laugh out loud.
