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

Get Into Nature!

Oh California how I adore you! Within an hours drive I can be at the beach or at the mountains.  You can't do that in any other state and still have great weather.  Just a short drive away in the San Bernardino Mountains lies Big Bear.   The most adventures, thrilling and beautiful place to be.  The mountains are in full bloom awaiting every mountain biker who dares to ride the gondola up the mountain.  Indeed, it was I who couldn't wait to ride up the mountain with a MTB bike in hand.   The only thing I wasn't expecting was actually being afraid of heights.  Maybe a little more nervous.  My eldest son is a die hard Mountain Biker Beast.  So, I took him out for a what would seem like a nice stroll down the mountain.  NOT! I literally walked my bike all the way down the mountain.  Yes, I'm was a chicken but once I felt comfortable I jumped on my bike and went full speed! Watch out Bear Mountain mama is coming to get  you! Oh

Here's a the link to Big Bear: www.bigbear.com 

There were a few hiccup's but I made it out alive with big smiles.  Thank you son for showing me new adventures!
