Yesterday we ventured to Coronado for breakfast and then made the two hour trek to Big Bear. The weather was beautiful. We decided not to ski due to lack of time, but did partake in some snow tubing. Seriously, I’m talking Mia on my back flying down a giant hill of snow! Our little rustic hotel, Frontier Lodge, sat right on Big Bear lake. We spent time soaking in the beauty of the lake and skipping rocks on the water. This was a side of California I have never seen, and one that Mia really enjoyed.

Today was a lazy day back in San Diego…. Right after sleeping through the 5.5 earthquake aftershock, we laid by our bay front pool and soaked in the rays. This evening, we went to La Jolla for a casual dinner at Bubba’s Smokehouse and spent some time with the seals. After dinner it was back to the Hilton to hang by the giant fire pit by the bay.
We head back to Florida tomorrow, but this trip was definitely refreshing for my soul. Maybe we can “accidentally” miss our flight. Don’t test me… I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again. It’s been a great trip and I hate to see it end. Catch you all back on the other coast!
The high today was 65 with a low of 47. Kind of cold for my taste. We woke up early due to our EST internal clocks and headed to MaryJanes at the Hard Rock for breakfast. Breakfast was yummy, but if you ever venture to MaryJanes, beware of the $5 orange juice and $3 split fees. Signature hash browns are to die for, and overshadow all the extra charges. Get it… hash browns at MaryJanes… um, maybe it’s just me. Anyway, they are to die for!
Played around at PetCo Park’s mini ball field and spent some time at the pool. Yes, the pool in 65 degree weather. Thank goodness for the awesome pool at our hotel… heated saltwater pool situated in direct sunlight all day. The only set back today was when Mia exited the pool to tell me she was going to throw up and promptly did so in a drainage gate. She’s like her mom… always has to liven things up a bit.

We spent the afternoon and early evening at the San Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park. Lots of fun, but very crowded due to spring break. We waited over an hour to go on the Journey Through Africa Safari. It was awesome once we finally made it onto the safari. Totally worth the wait!
Finally on the safari…
Heading to Big Bear tomorrow for the day and night to do some snow tubing…. Maybe skiing. Hoping for a connection to post, but can’t promise anything.
I’ll finally adjust to this time change and it will be time to head back to FL! Maybe we should just stay…
Hi friends! I have fabulous news! The Mamma Mia Blog is finally settled into our new home at www.themammamiablog.com. Yes! Yes! It’s our own Web site. Seriously, I know I’m a little over the top, but let me have my moment.
Over the course of about a month, I have been working with an amazing blog guru Rob McGuire, who also built one of my favorite blogs Savvy Sassy Moms. Rob successfully migrated Mamma Mia from Blogger to WordPress. Kudos to Rob for a job well done and for putting up with me.
So, what does this mean for Mamma Mia? Well, we have a lot more functionality, which allows us to be BIGGER and BETTER… More giveaways, more guest bloggers, more travel, more fashion, more food ideas, more local fun and even more of my “take it or leave it” random life lessons.
To kick things off, I’ll be blogging every day next week as we take beautiful San Diego, California by storm on our family vacation. The Griswolds have nothing on us. Brace yourself San Diego, I’m coming back… and I have kids this time. Something we should do or see? Leave a comment and let me know.
San Diego Here We Come!
