Griffith Park is so beautiful and so huge. Do you know that Griffith Park is bigger than Central Park? It is 46oo acres! It's got 50 miles of horse riding trails, biking and hiking trails, a carousel, many, many picnic areas, and awesome areas to explore. There are bridges everywhere and trails and creeks running under the bridges. Of course it is also the home of the LA Zoo, Griffith Observatory, Travel Town, and even the famous "Hollywood" sign. We merely scratched the surface! Do I sound like a commercial?
Do you know what is the coolest? We literally are 5 minutes away. We could bike there. I am so excited!I am shooting for taking the kids once a week. Whenever you come visit, you can bet we will go take you there. Best of all, it's FREE!

It is so hard to believe that Big Bear is only two hours from Burbank. I still can't get over it. It is like being in a different world. It is so gorgeous up in these mountains. The kids had such a great time together. Grandma and Grandpa's friend owns this cabin and let us use it for the weekend. It was a super nice place. The kids built forts, snowman, and went sledding right in the backyard. Awesome!

Carina absolutely loves I Spy books and has created several scenes of her own. Here is her latest creation "Wacky Victorian Dollhouse" She is really excited for her cousins and friends in Sierra Vista to do this.
Find the following : race car, puppy, shower brush, one die(not two or it would be dice), ribbon spool, tiny magazine, fishtank, bear rattle, peeking horse, cup with an umbrella, horse's tail, and a baby.
After you find everything, let Carina know how you liked it.

Are any of you feeling cabin fever because of your sick kiddos? Mine have been sick since we moved here. I have only had 4 days without sick kids at home since Christmas vacation. Sometimes I feel my kids aren't very good at sharing, but when it comes to sharing germs we are EXPERTS! I have washed coats, sheets, quilts, shoes, curtains, etc. When my mom was here a couple of weeks ago she went crazy with lysol and cleaning my house. I have been very frustrated about it for a while. I now am on hold with the pediatrician's office. We are trying to get established as new patients and the recording says, "your call is important to us. Please remain on the line and a representative will be with you shortly." Shortly? It has been 18 minutes now. I hung up and called them back and they said they don't know what's wrong and can't find out cause they aren't even in the same office as customer service. AAAAAHHHH!!!!!

My front room is fun because I love my red chairs and my funky curtains. I love that Salvation Army! My leather chair was too small for our bedroom, so we left it in the front room. It is my fave phone spot because I can sit and look out my window at the tree- lined street that dead ends into ours. It is gorgeous!
