Antonovich Trail in San Dimas was a fun hike with the kids. A lot of shade, a nice stream, things to look at. Plenty of little spots to explore and teach the kids about.
We’re always on the lookout for unique parks in the greater Los Angeles area. Arlington Garden in Pasadena is one of those places. The three-acre garden feels a lot like a mini arboretum that’s broken up into many different plant communities, with each area having its own distinctive feel and atmosphere. Opened in 2005, Arlington promotes well-being and relaxation.
We had a great time in Wrightwood, CA, playing in the snow. Since It was our girl’s first time experiencing snow, we wanted to find a less busy place for them to play. So we decided to drive up for a Wrightwood Snow Day.
Kairi really liked making the Fall Botanical Cookies we made around Thanksgiving. So for Christmas, we decided to go with the same pressed leaf, shortbread cookie process to create some beautiful Christmas botanical cookies.
Lytle Creek was a great activity for our family. With the pandemic in full swing, we’ve had to try more isolated activities. While It’s still possible to go out, safe options are getting even harder to find. Lytle Creek is nice because you don’t have to hike far to enjoy nice clear water coming down from the mountain.
The Mission Tiki Drive-in Theatre has been in our stable rotation of things to do for years. Even before kids, Trang and I would spend our summer nights watching double features.
