As you all know there are many activities in the area and it’s hard to gather all the information. Erin Fountain has volunteered her time to helping me out and I am so delighted to have her. We both left our careers in the Marketing world, when we met we realized that our combined experience and passion for marketing and events could really help Tahoe Kidz thrive. As a team, we hope to share more information and fun things to do in our beloved mountain community. Now, let’s get to know Erin.
What brought your family to Tahoe?
Ever since the first time my husband (then boyfriend) visited Tahoe it became our happy place. We knew when it was time for us to start a family we wanted to do it here. Whenever we visited from our home in the Bay we never wanted to leave. We moved to Truckee the summer our first daughter, Everly, turned one – July 2017. She is now 2.5 and we now have a second daughter, Milly, who is 9 months.
What are some of your favorite things to do with your kids?
There are so many fun things, it’s hard to choose a favorite. Anything outdoors- parks, playgrounds, swimming. Everly started skiing for the first time this year, so it has been really fun watching her at the Tahoe Donner hill. Kidzone is always a favorite in the winter for sure!
As it gets warmer we love the trails and parks. The Truckee Airport Park is a favorite. On weekends, we like to take the trail that leads downtown and hit up the Alibi. The kids can run around, swing on their awesome indoor swings they hang up, and my husband and I enjoy an adult beverage. It’s a win for everyone!
What is one of your favorite parenting Successes so far?
I think my favorite success is getting outside and having little adventures with my two littles. I love that my oldest asks me to do something everyday, and almost expects it because we try to get out at least once a day. Let’s be honest, getting out the door with two is a success in itself.
What is your idea of the “Perfect Tahoe Day”?
Right now, my perfect Tahoe Day is staying right in our neighborhood, Tahoe Donner. I love the fact that we live in a community where everything we love is right here! Especially when I have two kids to pack up and put in the car. Skiing, snowplay, swimming at the pools and the lake, hiking, and ending the day at the sauna/steam room. So much family friendly fun!
Thank you so much for sharing Erin. Please join me in welcoming her to the Tahoe Kidz team. We can’t wait to share what we’ve got in store in the coming weeks. Thank you all for hanging with us after a crazy winter and always being supportive of this page.
Happy Spring, get out there and enjoy the sunshine.
