Easter at Prince Pines.

Kids love adventures. I love adventures. Our family loves adventures. When I was a little chica my Mom used to plan epic adventures. We’d pack up the car to the brim and just go places. It seemed so effortless. My Mom and her AAA Travel Guide with a pen, a highlighter and some maps took us all over So Cal and beyond! The memories I made from those adventures and still carry with me have created the passion I have for crafting amazing outings for my own family.

Thanks to my new fabulous friend Amanda Prince and owner of Prince Pines, I was able to plan a journey to the mountains of intensely fabulous proportions! With Spring Break looming on the horizon, I was desperate for an escape from town that didn’t include an overcrowded amusement park or jaunting to the beach in horrible weather. So after connecting with Amanda in the So Cal Lady Bloggers group on Facebook, I started crafting a trip for me and the boys that would include relaxation and a little fun in the snow.

A Slice of Sugarloaf

This morning I woke up in the woods. I made a fire and saw this out my window…

 

Yesterday, The Boyfriend and The Monkey and me, jumped in the PT Crapper called Betty and ventured over the mountains and through the woods to Big Bear. Thanks to the fabulous So Cal Lady Bloggers, I connected with the owner of this fabulous retreat Prince Pines. This place is stunning and fabulously appointed. Upon walking into the cabin I was transported back in time to when I was a kid with it’s lovely wood flooring, stone stacked fireplace and full kitchen this place took me back. Love it here!

Da Holidays at Legoland.

During Turkey Day Break, the Monkey, the Boyfriend and I piled into Betty the PT Crapper and drove down to San Diego. It’s something my family always did. Find ways to get out of the house and well, that usually involved theme parks. My Mama always took us to theme parks for breaks and it rocked. So now that I’ve gotten the Boyfriend on the same kick, we rock it whenever we can to a theme park. While we are usually Disneyland fanatics this holiday break took us to a whole new realm. Legoland.

Being on a budget this time of year sucks. However, I was raised by folks with the knack for making big things happen on budgets of all shapes and sizes. We’d been planning this trip since I was lucky enough to grab some Legoland tickets from Klout and we weren’t going to let anything stand in our way! And of course while we were in town, we had to throw in a trip to our favorite SD theme park…Sea World! (insert air guitar here) Read more…
