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

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: 

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

Wordless Day

There are many times when all I hear is silence.  Not the boys calling my name or arguing about who had what toy first.  Not even Pache barking away.   Is it that I zone everything out and wish I had some adult interaction...maybe so.  Cheers to all the stay at home moms with more then 3 kids!!!  Viva to CHU (as my friend Lluvia would say)!!!

Cleanse the me it's true!

Yes, moms always need their fix! Victory beer with lemon, pepper and tapatillo! Ummm!
Mama gone Laughlin NV :)

Have you ever heard of Mountain Lakes, Lytle Creek Ca?

We took the kids to this small yet big mountain resort tucked away in the small town of Lytle Creek in the San Bernardino Mountains.  Sadly, it is a memebers only resort. They offer camping, cabins, and RV hook-ups, basketball courts, horse shoe pits, fishing, family center, laundry, and so much more. We had such a good time. I invite you to check it out!  Mountain Lakes Resort Website

The big Two

I should call this day a national holiday and announce to the kid world that Landen is turning  2 today. Happy Birthday little fella. This year we decided not to have a big bash but take him on a trip to the beach and ending the day with dinner and a cake. I'll post pictures soon, but for now let's reminise on this past year of joy.
