Snow days.. yes in southern CA

This weekend the boys and I headed to the mountains.. (about a 45 min trip from the beach) The sky was blue, the sun was shining and there was about 5 to 6 inches of snow on the ground.  A beautiful sight! This was our first trip to Mt. Laguna. Why, I dont know? But, believe me we will be going back. We already have a list of things we could have used.. waterproof gloves.. would have been a good choice!
We took our boogie board as this is the only sledding device we have..  however, we did see some people with plastic laundry baskets. Which actually work really well!
It was so nice to walk around the forest and explore with the boys. Not to mention the sledding brought back some really fun memories for me! Growing up in VA in the winter we had some really fun sledding days! Super cold though.. But warming up to a nice cup of hot cocoa with the icing on the cake!  This trip we did not have a cocoa, but we did eat lunch by the fire in a little restaurant called The Eagle and Bear Cafe.  The food was filling. And lucky for me they had a vegan White Bean and Kale soup. It warmed me right up!
So if you are up in the Laguna Mountains stop by.. I understand it is under new management.
