We had such a good time last week on our trip to Lake Arrowhead. Keith had an engagement session at the Lake, with a couple who had met their 10 years ago. Such a cute story, he was a water ski instructor, she was his student. Now, 10 years later, they are about to be married! Photographing the engagement session at Lake Arrowhead was had so much meaning to them.
What a beautiful spot. So serene. Instantly, the kids were enjoying themselves and mommy was relaxed while daddy was off working. We immediately went down by the water, which Gabby referred to as a swamp. I guess living in the desert she doesn’t see to many bodies of water. With the lake being dark in color – the word lake didn’t even cross her mind, it looked like a swamp! A beautiful swamp in my opinion.
The kids and I sat by the water for hours. They were jumping in and out, playing with the sand, I was reading some trashy English gossip magazine that my sister had so kindly passed along to me. So relaxing. A perfect afternoon.
Lake Arrowhead is such a cute little town. We stayed at Lake Arrowhead Lodge, which was walking distance to town, restaurants, the grocery store and the Lake. So scenic. So American. A little area with rides. A boat ride. Ducks to feed. Waffles to eat. A perfect summer getaway!
Including the ride back. After Isabella was sick from the ride down the mountain (poor thing, she just doesn’t do well with sharp turns), we stopped in Cabazon for Gabby to be in touch with her dinosaurs. Talk about being in her element. We have already toured this (odd, creationist, dinosaurs roamed the earth with humans) museum a few years back. But she still loves to look in the gift shop and just see life size dinosaurs – pure heaven for her!
I don’t think the kids have enjoyed themselves this much ever! A good time was had by all.
