Big Bear Snow Play

The weather is definitely changing and you can definitely feel a little bit of chill in the air.  Thanksgiving weekend/week is next week. I still can’t believe it! We’re off from school and work and on the lookout for adventure. We usually head up to Big Bear a few times during the winter and plan on making it up next weekend. We are always up for some fun  in the snow. My in-laws have a cabin in Big Bear  and we like to take the kiddos up for some fun in the snow. Did you know that you don’t have to wait for a massive storm to make some fun memories in the snow?

Big Bear Snow Play is now open for the season, and is a super fun place to take the family for an outing. Natural and man made snow are combined to ensure that your family has a blast. You can go snow tubing, play in the snow, or sled down a good size hill, as many times  as your heart desires. Six full-length runs are open for inner tubing with a base of one to up to six feet of snow. As the winter continues Big Bear Snow Play will eventually have over 20 feet of snow piled high on and up to eight runs.

Big Bear Snow Play is open everyday from 10am to 4pm. Admission is $30 per person and includes unlimited rides and an inner tube rental. Please remember to bring cash. It’s open from 10am to 4pm, seven days a week.  For additional info head here.

So Much to be Thankful for this Thanksgiving Netflix #StreamTeam

Netflix has some fun new additions this month for the whole family to enjoy. Stop dreaming and start streaming!

The Care Bears have never really gone away. I remember watching the first movie opening weekend from the front row in a sold out theater in Central California. I had several Care Bears and watched the television shows over and over. Now the sharing and caring of Care-a-Lot is ready for another generation.  Care Bears & Cousins is streaming now.


One of our favorite films from this past Spring was “Home” from Dreamworks.  Follow the tale of the misunderstood alien “OH” (Jim Parsons) and Tip (Rihanna), the little girl he befriends here on Earth. Though there is mutual distrust, both crave friendship and fun and a place they can call home. Home is the perfect movie for those of us away from home during the holidays as well as those who made it back to their home of origin.


We hope your Thanksgiving is full of family, fun and love. Have a wonderful holiday, from all of us here at!
