Big Bear

On our way to go-carting, alpine sliding & tubing.

Hanging out on the porch swing.
Ski School for Rob.

Ski school was a little harder than he expected. He thought he'd be doing jumps and flying through the air by now. Instead he kept falling down. Needless to say, he wasn't too happy with skiing. Can you tell?
Hangin' out at the cabin.

It was so much fun!! I love cold weather. I really do. That is the ONLY thing I miss about Utah. In fact, it cracks me up what Californians think is cold weather. The first day we were in Big Bear it was 65 degrees. The second day it was a little cooler due to the storm coming in and the third day was spectacular! It snowed and was blizzardy. We spent the morning in the cabin with the fire blazing. I loved it!

Our Trip to Monterey

I Love California!

Dennis The Menace Park

Pebble Beach

I have more pics but these were some of my favorites. You can tell from the kids how great the weekend was. It was absolutely fantastic and very much needed. More than anything, though, I fell in love with California all over again. We had so much fun!!!

Back To Reality

So I did it. I had my facial and massage yesterday and let me tell you it was absolutely heaven!!! I felt so alive and so regenerated afterwards I felt like I could conquer the world! I'm not kidding. It was wonderful! Then today I had a great lunch with some fantastic women who make me feel so loved and whom I have such a great time with that it's always a bummer when it ends. I'm so blessed for so many things!

But it's time to get back to reality. My house is a wreck because for the last two days I've done nothing but indulge myself. But honestly, I don't feel bad at all about that.

A Great Weekend

In spite of Mike being gone all weekend, I had a great weekend. Friday night I invited a couple of girlfriends out for date night. After all, why waste a perfectly good baby sitter just because my husband is out of town, right? So we went out had dinner, went to a chick flick, and had dessert afterwards. Good times. Good times.

My girl, Robyn and her husband and, of course, their baby boy, Andrew, came up the next day and spent the day with us. Robyn and I went to a baby shower and then came back and hung out and then we all went to the park. It's just fun being with them. The kids just love them and Robyn and I can laugh into the morning together if we had the chance. Love you guys!!

The kids and I had a great day at church today. The spirit was strong and we saw our friends. Mike came home and we were thrilled to have him back.

And for tomorrow..... a massage and facial for me. hehehehe.....
