Quicker than you can say......


We have been planning a trip to Big Bear,CA with our dear friends the Reeves for a month or so now. We found a little cabin just big enough for all of us to fit and all the necessary preparations were made. If you know me, you know I am always one to come prepared. (I pack well ;) )











Around 2:00 on Thursday we arrived in Big Bear ready for a couple days of relaxing and good times with friends.

Our weekend got off to a great start! We were surprised to see small patches of snow on the mountain. Especially since it was like 87* back home.











On Friday morning we got ready to go out to a Big Bear style breakfast! :)

Of course the girls had to have matching outfits. (It's my thing ;))

Well this is where the "flexibility" part comes in....

On Friday afternoon Anna was hit by a bug of some sort. After thoroughly loosing her "BIG BEAR style breakfast" (several times) we all felt it was in the best interest of everyone to head back home. :(

Slightly disappointed and frustrated we cut our trip to the mountains short, packed up our stuff and headed home.


DSC_5850 After telling Rebekah we would be leaving early she was slightly distraught, but quick to recover once Jamba Juice and a trip to the park were promised. ;)

Well..... this is what happens with kids I guess. So often our schedule and plans are tossed out the window to accommodate the apples of our eyes. :)

It seemed like our trip was too short but we left already with discussion of plans for another mini-vacation with the Reeves.

I guess it is times like this that I can allow the Lord to teach me to release control and learn (at least) how to be just a tad bit flexible. :) 

I don't like this lesson. ;)


  1. Awwww, that's too bad. Hopefully the next trip will be better.

  2. I love the matching! I am kind of hoping that this one is a girl so that I can do the cute outfits...We'll see! I'm sorry the trip was short.

  3. oh, Emily...when will all of the sickness go away?? It looks like you had fun in the few short hours you did have in Big Bear! Cute matching outfits.

  4. Ugh. Sorry about that. I hope you guys feel better soon, I want to play with 'Bekah on the new playground at church!


  5. It was so sad.......:(
