This Weekend in Photos: August 1-3

As you might’ve seen on Friday, or if you follow me on Instagram, then you know I spent the weekend in Big Bear Lake, which is a mountain town about 2.5 hours northeast of San Diego.

The getaway was to celebrate one of our friends’ birthdays, and the cabin, which was supposed to fit 7 people, was instead full of a group of 15 of us on Friday night, and 11 of us on Saturday night. But with four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a jacuzzi and big balcony, we had just enough room for a nice little weekend away from San Diego.

In the mountains, where it rained most of Saturday, I was reminded of New England and it made me miss it a lot. The rain was definitely welcome, since Southern California has been experiencing a significant drought, but it also made the weekend in the cabin a little more cozy.

Other highlights of the weekend? Spending time with great friends, making new friends, carne asada tacos, and some Magic Hat.

Maeby got to hang out with her best friend Lilo, and made a new friend, Swarley (obscure How I Met Your Mother reference).

And as for the rest of us?

I think this picture of Maeby on the way home summarizes how we all felt Sunday morning…

It was a good weekend away, and as always, it was so nice returning home to San Diego.

And now, the work week begins again…

Happy Monday!
