Idyllwild CA

Our time in Idyllwild California will always be one of my favorites! And most memorable... especially since it started with a 20 plus mile drive up a mountain in the dark! I was so flipping terrified. I just kept picturing our trailer falling off a cliff as we were winding around the switchbacks. 

One of the best parts was meeting these peeps. We found 3 other full time families and spent Halloween with them... it was so awesome. The town was great- set up for the kids to trick or treat at all of the local businesses. 

We later discovered some incredible views right by our spot... unbelievable and breathtaking!!!! 

The kids absolutely loved the playground there... it was beautiful!

Sunsets were amazing:

We found fall leaves:

And the library:

I found some mistletoe growing:

and cool wood patterns:

And Oscar and I spent the last night watching the sunset above the clouds.... will remember that forever! 

Idyllwild, I know we will be back!

Lake Mead

When we were in Vegas we spent some time close the amazing Lake Mead. We checked out the Hoover Dam (amazing!) and then the kids and I went to Lake Mead.

Thanks to Annie being a 4th grader... we are all able to get into The National Parks for FREE!!!! They call the program Every Kid in a Park. Fabulous timing if I do say so! :)  

We did the kids first Jr. Ranger badge here as well... here they are being sworn in. Super cute. The program is just awesome... they learn and I feel better about not making them do too much school that day.

We drove through the state park and discovered it was massive.... we turned around at the red rock hiking area after climbing some rocks....

and watching some birds...

and checking out animal tracks...

It was a great first National Park experience!
