Outdoor Adventures This Summer with the Family & Schwinn

It’s crazy to think this will be our last summer in Southern California, then we are off to Texas!  Before our big move there are tons of tings I want to do with the kids before we move.

The summer has so many opportunities to do things with them that we have never done before. Like our local mountain has an Arboretum that I would love to take the girls to. It has history about the mountain and teaches kids about the San Bernardino Mountain Forest.

Another huge thing for us is spending our days on the lake boating. We enjoy watching Daddy and Nino wake board and can’t wait to get Samantha up on one!

We also have Beach Clubs in Lake Arrowhead that we love to go to. If were not ON the lake ON the boat then we love to visit the beaches and lounge out while the kids play with their friends!

Every August we take a week trip to New Port Beach. You can’t live in Southern California and not enjoy the beautiful beaches of the west coast This has been a family tradition since Samantha was a baby and the girls look forward to it every summer.

Up in Lake Arrowhead we also have mountain biking trails. This is so much fun as my sister and I used to bike all over growing up. Samantha and Sarah love to ride their Schwinn bikes.

The girls love riding their bikes. We also take them to the Elementary School where they have a ton of room to ride. It’s flat and we don’t have t worry about cars.

I am so excited to be getting one thanks to GLAM and Schwinn. I can’t wait to get out and ride with them this summer. I just need to get a baby seat so Shelby can join in the fun! Stay tuned for our Biking Adventures this summer as well!

If we’ve learned anything from more than a century of building bikes, it’s that some things never get old. From that first taste of freedom, when the training wheels come off, to the wonder of a parent letting go, and all of the ups and downs in between, magical moments in life happen on a Schwinn.

Life’s a ride. Enjoy it on a Schwinn.

As you can see there is so much to do in our local mountain to keep any family well entertained all summer long. Plus all the activities keep us healthy and off the couch!

What are you plans this summer with your family? What kind of Outdoor Adventures are you planning?

    Your family looks like they really enjoy the water sports! We also love them but have become so busy with kids’ sports we never get the time to get out anymore. Your pictures and story make me more certain that we have to re prioritize our time, especially our summer. you have made such amazing memories for your girls! That is such a gift Mandy!
    Biking will be just one more thing to enjoy as a family and is such good exercise! I miss biking, we hadn’t used our bikes for so long…they were so old and not a good brand. We finally had to get rid of them. Maybe we will find some new bikes someday again:)

    As far as this summer goes, we will do some fishing and tubing on our glorified fishing boat and watching LOTS of baseball and softball games. We long to go camping but so swamped with kids sports events and so hard to take off and let the teams without the required amount of players. It’s such a tough spot to be in. Those days go so fast and then all of a sudden its ten years later. sigh…

    We live about 4hrs from Southern California and visit every summer. We enjoy the beach while we’re there. Locally, we like to swim in my parents’ backyard pool and do a LOT of BBQ’ing!
