Snow Trip

by Mollie

Earlier this month we headed to Big Bear for a couple days.  It’s already been three years since we played in the snow in Yosemite when Natalie was a baby!  We wanted the kids to have some kind of idea what that white stuff if, so this quick trip to the mountains was perfect.  We brought along my sister Jamie and her boyfriend Daniel, which made the kids even more excited and entertained!  We went to the Snow Play area on the second day and rode down the Alpine Slide a bunch of times, but this field of fresh snow behind our cabin would have been plenty of fun for everyone.

My sister has this weird thing where she loves to make tiny snowmen… look at her conversing with this one!  Haha, love you Jamie!  Ben was not so sure he liked snow at first– I can hardly blame him, since most of it was too deep for him to walk in.  Then he discovered that he could eat it, and he was content.

Only Jamie would think to bring her boogie board to the snow.  The kids loved their wild rides on it!

Natalie was completely delighted by the snow, and didn’t even mind getting a face full of it every time she wiped out.

Our cabin!  It was comfortable and roomy inside… almost as big as our house I think!

Jamie brought crafts to entertain the kids when it got too cold to play outside.  What a great aunt!

So much fun!  We are hoping to do something like this every year!

    I loved those pictures! Natalie looked so delighted to be in the snow. I loved Ben and Natalie’s huge smiles and red cheeks. That’s what winter fun is all about! Those crafts are too cute btw. 🙂

    Wow! What fun! You tell a good story with your pictures–how can we get YOU in them too? Yes, it should be an every-year event definitely.
