Lake Arrowhead {2017}

Hubby, the kids and I woke up early New Year’s Day for a little day trip to Lake Arrowhead.

The last time we went to play in the snow, Sarah was almost 4 years old. See more pictures here.

Packed and ready for our road trip!Going up the mountain was super foggy. However once we got up the mountain it was absolutely beautiful out.After some air (I got super car sick on the way there AND back) we sat down for brunch at Belgian Waffle Works.

(A must eat place if you go to the village!) We walked around a bit, checked out the shops and fed the birds.

At first, Jacob didn’t know what to do with it.He quickly learned how fun snow is!Luckily, big sis remembered and was ready to play. Snow ball fight!!Hubby grew up going to Lake Arrowhead. He did things like feeding the ducks and/or birds McDonald’s french fries. The kids loved the idea! They loved it so much they even snuck a few into their mouths. It was really windy and chilly (high 30’s). We headed back to the car, warmed up and looked for a good spot to go sledding. We loved looking at all the snow covered trees. We drove by the same the spot we had visited before and decided stop here again.   Jacob wasn’t a huge fan of sledding or any of the hills.But Sarah was! At one point she just slid on her tummy.  I put the camera down for the rest of the trip and just enjoyed playing in the snow. 

We had so much fun!

We played until it got dark and then headed home.

It was freezing and we knew there was going to be some of traffic.Goodbye Arrowhead! Until next time.

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!
