Spring Break-tubing!

The next day after skiing we went tubing at a place called Alpine Slide.  We wanted to give the kids as much chance as possible to play in the snow since they don’t get to see a lot of it in Texas!







After tubing, we went to the Big Bear Discovery Center!






We went for a little hike!

Spring Break-Big Bear!

After Disneyland, we drove 2 hours to Big Bear to stay at my cousin’s cabin which has been in the family for almost 40 years!  My parents honeymooned there!  We stayed there 2 nights and spent time exploring, skiing  and tubing!  There was no snow around, but enough on the slopes to go skiing!  (Big Bear makes their own snow a lot of the time.)  Here are pictures from day 1 of exploring!

Asher climbing on the rocks around the cabin. I used to love playing on these rocks as a kid!

The kids were playing “Indian HGTV” and Rilyn was the realtor showing them around to different rock houses. This was Asher’s “house” and you can see he is sleeping in his bed. 🙂

Can you see Rilyn on top of the rock?

Peek a boo Ella!

We made s’mores that night in the fireplace! So fun!

Big Bear!

We started off on Saturday morning at Seal Beach.

Then we went to my 2nd cousin’s 2nd birthday party. This picture is me with my grandpa, his wife, and my uncle (my dad’s brother and father.)

That afternoon, we drove to Big Bear, which is about 2 1/2 hours away from where we were. Unfortunately, we hit traffic the whole way there, so we arrived at night. It was a little scary to drive on potential black ice, but we arrived safe at about 7 p.m. We stayed at the cabin where I grew up going to. It used to be my grandpa’s cabin, and then my cousin bought it from him, so it’s still in the family! My grandpa bought the cabin in 1972 for $12,000! 🙂
Once the fire gets started, it was so warm and cozy!

The cabin used to have a real deer head, but thankfully it’s been replaced…by an Ella head?!? 😉

Sunday morning was full of fun playing in the fresh snow!

Asher about to peg me with a snowball…

After I saw this snowman Ella made, I had to remind her that we are in the mountains, not Texas!, and she can make a MUCH bigger snowman than that!

Now THAT’S a snowman!
