The first weekend in February we got to celebrate our friends Erika's birthday with a trip to her parents home in Big Bear.
We made it a long weekend and left early Friday morning. We got up there by 10 and got right down to business with some sledding behind the house.
This was the boys first interaction with real snow. They have had snow day at their preschool but man made snow over half a play ground while its 70+ degrees out is not really the same thing.
Needless to say: THEY LOVED IT. Next time we are trying ski or snowboard lessons. They are all about it! So fun!!!
He would have done this all day, eventually we had to go in to eat meals.
Unfortunately our first night was a little rough with a fever for Owen, but, if you don't already know this about Owen he's like the biggest trooper out there and he bounced back big time the next morning so we decided to continue our weekend with some inner tubing at a local park.
It was super sunny, borderline hot so we just wore t-shirts, no complaining from these california kids.
I even got to take a ride with this sweet girl. I love borrowing daughters whenever I get the chance!
After lunch we wondered around town for a while.
Complete with a stop at the local (super crowded) candy store for chocolate covered strawberries and caramel apples.
Sweet friends with sweet treats.
View from the house. Just beautiful!
Thanks for an amazing weekend Howells! We love you guys!
