Once it gets warmer we'll get the kids out and about more. I don't want them to become couch potatoes.

I already am. lol. My husband comes home from work everyday and tries to get me to walk and do exercise. By the time he gets home, my back is already too bad, so I can't walk much. I have to start moving around more.

I wouldn't want to move either if my back was hurting. I would just start doing a little exercise at a time.

Yes i have been many times. I grew up in tahoe so we went alot. Honestly, im really into the old type ghost towns and virginia city is nothing like that. Its very commerilized (sp) kinda like a theme park very fake. But i guess if youre into stuff like that you would enjoy it, but im definitly not into "fake playtime old west". If that makes sense

 Virginia City is my most favorite place in Nevada.  I can spend all day there and not get bored.  It has so much energy and it has a lot of history also.

Sadly though the Ponderosa is Closed.  They sold it about 5ish years ago.  I was so very sad when they did.  It was a fun place to go for a few hours in the day.  They had the sets there and they had a horse trail and a wagon trail up the mountain to have a pancake breakfast.

 It could have been as long as 8 years I remember going there when my 9 yr old was a baby. (He just turned 9 in Jan) It wasnt to long after that that it closed.
