Southern California was just graced with a crazy, powerful storm. It rained here by the water and snowed inland. We live just a few miles from the beach and about 100 from ski resorts. Seems weird to think of it like that, but it's true and was a major factor in our decision to settle in San Diego.
So.....when the mountains predict snow, we embrace it!
Some photos from our recent trip:
We own most of our gear, but needed to rent some this round because Jack and Lainey are growing fast.
Much less expensive to rent outside of the resort itself.
First time to Snow Valley! It's 8 miles down the mountain from Big Bear and Snow Summit, where we've gone several times.
Carter was first up.
Lainey had a slow start and we suspected she was sick for a while, but rallied quickly and had a great day.
Jack is an awesome skier. It comes naturally to him, like Blake.
Blake helped Lamby make ski goggles while waiting to see if she was going to be sick.
She felt better quickly!
It must have snowed 6 inches when we were on the mountain. Returned to the car to have a big project ahead....removing snow just so we could drive out!
This was a big trip for us. After teaching kids for nearly 10 years, we can finally ALL ski/ride well....get on and off lifts with ease.....and manage the mountain smoothly.
Gone are the days of my double stroller in the Rocky Mountains.
I like life with big kids!
Super busy week ahead:
Basketball play offs.
And, Pa is in town to enjoy it all with us!
Back soon with more!
