Lake Arrowhead {2015}

When Sarah was a baby we rented a cabin in Lake Arrowhead with hubby’s family.

IMG_0325Sarah has been talking about seeing snow for a couple weeks now, so hubby and I decided we would take a day trip on the first day of 2015 to see the snow. We once again headed to Lake Arrowhead (this time only with his mom) for a snow adventure.

Driving towards the mountain, the roads were empty and scenery was beautiful. We loved spotting the snow capped mountains.

IMG_4520It’s been freezing in So Cal (high 30’s to low 40’s) so we were expecting there to be a lot of snow.

Luckily we were right. There were 6 inches of fresh snow when we arrived!

IMG_4546The first thing Sarah wanted to do when she saw the snow was make a snow angel.

IMG_4530Then she got up and ran around in the snow.IMG_4523

IMG_4536IMG_4527Hubby and Sarah attempted to make a snow man, but she was sad when she found out we didn’t have a carrot for his nose.IMG_4540Instead we threw snowballs at one another.

IMG_4541IMG_4551IMG_4552IMG_4542IMG_4575We got back into our car, warmed up and stopped for some hot cocoa. IMG_4580Then we stopped in the village to find Sarah a sled.

IMG_4582IMG_4583We walked around, ate some lunch and hung out by the lake.

IMG_4590 IMG_4598 IMG_4603It was such a gorgeous day!

IMG_4606We couldn’t find a sled, but we had a back up plan. Hubby bought a container at Wal-Mart so that we could use the lid as a sled.

It didn’t work so well. Luckily the nice people near us asked if we wanted to borrow their sled.

We had lot’s of fun, but we were freezing! My Ugg boots were done.

IMG_4636We packed up and headed back home while watching the sunset.

IMG_4639My daughter who refuses to nap in her car seat actually took an hour long nap. Not only did she miss her nap earlier in the day, but she was wiped!IMG_4638 We were all pooped and happy to finally be at home.

Happy 2015 friends!

Avocado Festival

My family and I love going to food festivals! We’ve been to the Strawberry Festival, Salsa Festival, Apple Festival, Garlic Festival and now the Avocado Festival.


We love trying all the different types of food. I mostly love to taste the unique way they incorporate the festival food in all the dishes.

Unfortunately, hubby couldn’t attend the Avocado Festival so it was a fun mommy and daughter outing.

We started our food adventure with some good old fashion guacamole and chips!


Next we moved on to corn on the cob with avocado lime butter sauce. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture. If you like corn and avocado then you’d love it!

It was a super hot day! We sat on the curb and enjoyed a refreshing snow cone.


We checked out the kids area, but nothing sounded good in the heat. We headed back to the food tents.

It took us a while, but we finally found the avocado ice cream tent. I was hesitant as the combination didn’t sound good, but what’s the point of going to an Avocado Festival and not trying their special, avocado ice cream.


We loved it! Not only was it a much needed cool snack, it was delicious!


Miss Sarah wanted wanted more!

After walking around a bit, we spotted some fun picture opportunities.


We had a great time!

Have you ever been to the Avocado Festival? What food was your favorite?
