I had debated if I was up for this next adventure. Mountain biking down from the top of Snow Summit. I had no idea that you could even do something so crazy but my lovely son knew this. My first question was how do the bikes get to the top. I have enough problems just riding the hills by our house.
This is how they got up. They got their own ski lift ride. I had to admit that the ride up was great. I was scared at the thought of some of the hills I was going to encounter. Started off really slow and the guys were good and stopped often to wait for me and as I got more comfortable on the bike they didn't have to stop as much but I still used my brakes a lot. Just when I think I can do this they decided to detour onto another trail that was smaller and little did I know at the time more challenging. But I am proud to say I did not fall. Came close a few times and one time I went over a tree root and almost went head first over my handle bars. Lucky for me I was able to save myself.
I am glad I made it and don't have any broken bones.

This year for the 4th we headed up to Big Bear with the family and some of Daren's family. We have a timeshare and reserved it last summer. We thought how cool would it be to watch the fireworks on the lake from a boat. What a great idea. The only problem was we weren't really dressed for the weather. We had worn our bathing suits although we never really hit the water because it was so cold and we had all brought sweatshirts but we should have brought a few blankets also. They put on a great display though and it was neat to just relax on the boat and watch the fireworks almost right over your head.
