Spending the day with Joseph...

Yesterday, my older son, Joseph and I went up the hill to Big Bear for a day of snow boarding for him and a lot of walking for me. I don't snow board, although it looks pretty fun...I think I may be a bit old to try...I wouldn't want to break anything. I used to ski...years ago...but I hung up my skis when I had my sons...it just got too pricey. Anyway, we drove up to Snow Summit...

So much snow had already melted from the last big storm because it has been quite warm. It was in the high 50's and seemed more like a Spring day than a day in December! The chair lifts were quite busy though...but it wasn't a long wait like on the week ends.
Here's one of the runs...as you can see...it wasn't too crowded.


I enjoyed watching everyone coming down the mountain and wished for a bit I was up there with them! Skiing is so much fun!




The clouds started moving in after lunch...





We left to go to town to eat lunch, and after we ate we drove back so Joseph could get in a few more runs. I went for a nice walk...I think I must have walked 5 or so miles yesterday...but I will show the pictures from my walk later on a another post. I tried so hard to get a picture of Joey as he was coming down...looking for his blue pants, but he was either too far away...



or too close and walking back...here he is...coming down to meet me..I had a great day with my son...I always do when I am with my boys...those days are priceless!
Enjoy your weekend, my friends!!

That snow is just amazing for us to see here in OZ. Jan is a friend of mine in our sewing circle, and she told me how you displayed the card I made so beautifully, so I came over to have a look. Merry Christmas time to you.

Well with a resort like that so close to home I would be getting my skis out of retirement if I were you!

I love to look at snow at a resort because no one has to drive in it. One of the best Mother's Day gifts I ever received was a day with one of my sons at Biltmore house. Cost me a fortune...lol..but it was worth it.
