Big Bear and bruises.

Arriving hours after a snowfall, our weekend in Big Bear was filled with all things sledding, exploring, snowball fighting, and snowboarding.














 The weather was beautiful...





 This one blew us away with her determination to "get to the bottom of the run" with no help or encouragement even if it meant cutting off other boarders to get to the end quickest.



I'm not gonna lie, after snowboarding 8 hours on Saturday and 4 on Sunday,  my knees are bruised and my body feels like I got hit by a truck.  And I may or may not have army-crawled my way to the bottom of the bunny slopes at one point.  But bottom line is we found something that our family can do together.  And that's what makes me happiest.

zippity doo dah

A few weeks ago, we finally got around to redeeming Dusan's birthday gift to Skull Canyon Zipline Tours in Corona.  Needless to say, the pictures do the talking.  We had a blast.  Im petrified of heights, but the staff was so encouraging and with a warm-up zipline beforehand, I felt completely at ease and handed my camera over to our trusty guides...

 A few practice runs first...





 On our way up the hill...
 A short hike to the top...
 Here we go...

A simple task: raking leaves.
