With encouragement from friends we planned a trip to Big Bear Lake with two other couples and stayed in a cabin for two days this past week. It was really nice to get away from LA and go up to the mountains for a little relaxation although the relaxation was actually hard to come by, as it usually is with toddlers in tow. But we had fun exploring the town, eating out, and playing games in the cabin.
The second day we set out for some adventure, bike rides around the lake was first on the list. We had a hard time finding the path around the lake they were talking about so Joel, Oskar, and I just took a short ride around. Oskar still loved it though.
Then we went to the Alpine Slide. We rode up the hill in a chair lift and then down a water slide type run. Technically pregnant people weren't supposed to ride but if anyone would have accused me and my even more pregnant friend of being pregnant we would have just gotten very offended.
Oskar was a little nervous on the chair lift the first time and kept saying, "I don't like this, I don't like this." But by the second time he was a pro and got to ride once down the slide with me and once with Joel, of course Joel took him down way faster than I did.
It was a fun little trip! Now we're planning just a girls night away with some real relaxation time.
