All of us at the summit!
Over the weekend we took a short trip to Big Bear with our friends the Bailey's! We went up on Friday morning, walked around the shops at Lake Arrowhead, and then headed for Big Bear. Rob, the girls and I have only gone to Big Bear once, and it was when there was snow, so we were looking forward to exploring. Our lodge had cabins and motel rooms, and the motel rooms were on the lake! We had a small private beach complete with a small dock for fishing. The girls had never swam in a lake before. They have been in creeks, and rivers, and the ocean, but never a lake. I grew up swimming in Lake Isabella and so when the girls went crazy over feeling the slime and algae growing in the lake, I was surprised. It wasn't that was dirty, the bottom just had a different feeling than an ocean :). Katey Bailey had a great time playing in the water and digging in the sand. We also walked around the shops at the Village. On Saturday, before we left we decided to see if anything was going on at Snow Summit. They one of their ski lifts working and were taking people up to the top. We decided to ride the Sky Chair (ski lift) up to the top and look around and conquer some fears of heights. It was beautiful and worth the heights! At the top, we could see the whole lake and all around the area! We had a great time and can't wait for our next adventure with the Bailey's!
