Got SNOW????


We decided to finally take the kids to go play in the snow, since they have been begging us to go up to Big Bear just about every weekend!! So instead of making the hour and 20 minute drive to Big Bear, we decided to stay closer to home and went up to Idylwild which took us only about 40 minutes! Our good neighbors had told us of the secret place that they always go to, to avoid the holiday weekend crowds and when we got there, it was awesome!! We had to share this big hill with only one other family who was there with there 2 girls from Palm Springs. So it was perfect for me to be able to actually get a family picture with me in it!! The kids had soo much fun but I think Kristian was actually having more fun than all of us as he kept sliding down the hill and climbing higher each time and going off jumps. I think he was pretending like he was actually in Utah skiing with his college buddies like he tries to do every Presidents Day Weekend except this one.:( And I was pretending like I was back at our old house in Massachusetts, stuck in waist high snow and filming the kids playing and sledding down our big hill that we had in our backyard with all of the neighborhood kids!! BooHoo...Miss those days soo much! So now that we are living in the greatest weather around, we never get to enjoy the snow as much as we used to, so this is how we make do around here....

You guys can come to my house ANYTIME to play in the snow!! We're getting really sick of it around here. The grass is always greener...

We missed Kipper here in Utah. Monday was a PERFECT day to go skiing.
I love your family photo. Hope to get a copy of that real soon, right?

those are such cute pictures! I love that you got to go to the snow only 40 minutes away. I love the snow too (but only visiting it of course!)

What a fun family outing...I may have to call you about that secret spot sometime (maybe next year since pregnancy and sledding don't seem to mix or look very attractive :)). I love that you took a little family escape and enjoyed the holiday (cute pics too)!
