It does snow in San Diego!

It rained and poured here last weekend and left some cold, white, powdery stuff in the local mountains. Hmmm, maybe we should check it out? We packed up our car and headed 40 minutes east to Laguna where we were welcomed to a winter wonderland. I know for some of you this is no big deal, but for us, snow is a novelty and we had a blast playing in it today. It was Jakey's first time and Daniel's 2nd (we won't count Jakey's first Christmas in Utah b/c he was only 7 weeks old). Daniel had a great time and couldn't get enough of it. Jake could have cared less.

I still can't believe how perfect this place is. Where else can you drive 40 minutes one way and hit the snowy mountains and 20 minutes the other way and land on the beach? I know I go on way too much about my home but like my friend said "we get bragging rights for living in an over priced city."

Enjoy the beauty...

Absolutely beautiful! I'm sure Daniel had a blast - give Jakey another year, he'll be just as thrilled!

Jane, what beautiful photos! Wish we could get some of that white stuff over here right now...it would help out alot...but I guess in the middle of summer it would only come by way of a miracle!

What beautiful pictures! I must say I would brag too-that is great demographics! Beach and winter wonderland. I love the first picture of Jake getting all dressed looking at you like-I really don't want to do this, but I am too little to protest! Adorable!

How fun!! We were hoping to get out and find some of that this weekend but both kids decided to get sick! Poo... Oh well, at least we've got your pics!

I love looking at your snowy pictures! IT's so much more fun than living in Idaho where is snows ALL the time...even in JUNE! I think you've earned your bragging rights. I would love it there, I think!

Hey guys.
Looks like you've had your hands full, just like us. We're glad to see the last two months gone. Tijs ended up having surgery on his ears this week (unexpectedly). Long story and a lot of sleepless nights. Looks like Daniel is having a birthday soon! Where did you guys end up going in the mountains?
