From SNOW to SAND - New Years Eve 2012

What a way to top off 2012 than to start New Years Eve day in the snow and end it at the beach. We didn't plan it that way but it ended up to be so, which made it a pretty cool day! They always say California is the only place you can snowboard and surf in the same day. Well we did it 3 year old style: not quite snowboarding and not quite surfing, but it was fun all the same. 
Mount Laguna here we come.
 Our destination was stopped a bit short due to road conditions, but that didn't stop these snow seekers from finding a some suitable snowy patches.
Ellie was very proud of her little snow man. 
and she loves to eat the snow.. just not the yellow snow. 
Lola was all about the sledding, she even sported her bike helmet. 

Lola wanted to give me a ride too! 
we had a few snowball fights...

Ocean Beach here we come! 
So after spending and a few hours up in the snow we headed back west on highway 8. Tony joked and said, "Wouldn't it be cool just to take the 8 all the to the beach, so our toes can touch the snow and sand in the same afternoon,"  I said "why not"... and drove straight into Ocean Beach. Man did this turn of events make these little ladies pretty happy, they thought they were headed home for naps. Their smiles say it all! Can I just say I love the beach in the winter almost as much as I do in the summer. 

Then home to officially bring in the New Year (the New York new year at 9:00 PST of course)! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! 2013 is looking good so far!
