A taste of RCs and Rock-crawling

My boys always try to convince me to buy them remote control trucks. Yeah right! And that's with at least half dozen broken ones in the back yard. My eldest got me to buy him a RC at Ross for half the price. Price paid off since they retail for over $150 and I paid $39.99!

We took it to a rc rock-crawling course
to test it out. It performed well but diff innately not like a pro rc truck. Either way it was cheap and fun! My smaller boys also took their armature rc trucks from Target. Fun day with my boys

Happy New Adventures!!!

86 degrees in Cali. God sure is good! I woke up this morning wanting to hike, walk our Patchy or maybe just maybe hit the waves but instead we ended up at Grinchmas! Trust me visiting Universal Studios is not my first, second or third choice but I have little ones who would love to experience some more normal Hollywood stuff. Ehhh, I would rather go to the Zoo!

Mama went Snow!

Big bear is a wonderful place to get away from. It's just a short drive from the city with breath taking views.

We decided to take on a winter storm and drive up the hill on a very snowy day. We made a snow man, went off roading, sledding, and best of all drifting! I scarred the jibblers out of everyone.

Oh, that's right! Mama is crazy. :)

Yikes, rock climbing!

No, there wasn't any rock climbing in my white beauty though I did wish I had a long travel.  I had no chance against the giant boulders.  Tempting very temping. There wasn't no labor this Labor Day weekend.  Well, unless your a mom of 3 very active boys.  We made our way to Crab Flats near Arrowbear and Running Springs in the San Bernardino Mountains for some rough and tough off roading.  I never knew this gem was in our back yard. Only 1.5 hr away from SGV. Why has no one ever told me?  Camping, quads and off roading...now that's paradise! Check it out...

2nd Favorite Museum: LACMA

Were else can your children paint, run around the beautiful grounds and see live tar? Nop, no where else in southern California.  I believe I have shared with you before about the Arts For Nexgen LACMA program but if you missed it here it goes again.  Yes, it's FREE which also includes an adult. Talk about a deal.  Art camps and classes are offered as well as the Boone Children's Gallery which is open for kids to learn about painting and also make a masterpiece to take home.   Sunday's are family day's offering children the chance to make art, explore the museum or join in on a gallery tour.  To many fun activities to list. Check out their website at www.lacma.org
