Life Lately, March 2016

jestcafe.com-lifelately23 We went skiing to Big Bear back in January. It was the first time for Víctor and Max, and they both loved it. How could they not? There was plenty of snow and 60 degrees weather… only in California.

Max just turned 2 in October, so I didn’t think he would be able to go skiing. It was my brother, a ski instructor, the one that recommended taking him, and he was right. George and I are good skiers, so it was easy to carry Max between our legs. He was not able to ski on his own, but he still enjoyed the whole things as much as Víctor did. The best part was that we didn’t need a babysitter! We were able to ski all day together as a family.

From all the ski centers we went to, we liked skiing at Snow Valley the best. It is a smaller mountain, easy to access and with no lift lines. It is perfect when you are skiing with small children that need to go to the bathroom (or take a break) at any moment in time. jestcafe.com-lifelately22 jestcafe.com-lifelately21 jestcafe.com-lifelately20 jestcafe.com-lifelately18jestcafe.com-lifelately11Look at this little one on his mini-skies! People were so surprised to see him going down the mountain with us. He is a tiny creature! He was, without a doubt, the youngest kid on the mountain that weekend. jestcafe.com-lifelately9And here he is in the middle of Snow Summit mountain… totally exhausted. jestcafe.com-lifelately2jestcafe.com-lifelately12A well deserved meal. I have never seen my kids eat so much.jestcafe.com-lifelately19jestcafe.com-lifelately8jestcafe.com-lifelately14 Big Bear Village is a cute little town with nice restaurants and coffee shops. After spending the day skiing, it was fun to go there to have dinner and relax a little bit.

jestcafe.com--lifelately55 As some of you know, I have been obsessed with the Flower Market in DTLA. I have been there almost every weekend for the last 2 months. I know the vendors, the flowers, the smell. I love it so much, I am always finding new excuses to go.

    What a fun post! I cannot downhill ski, but there is something magical about being outside on sunny days with white snow all around, and it looks like you had such a fun day. Amazing that your two year old could ski!! Wonderful pictures. Btw You look great, no need for makeup. (Though I am biased because I am not into makeup either!)
