Terror in the Oaks: Vail Lake Resort Halloween Festivities

Starting the second weekend of October,  the Vail Lake Resort Halloween festivities transforms this serene campsite into a frightfully fun party for the whole family. Although we love RVing at Vail Lake Resort throughout the year, October is our favorite time to visit. By day the kids enjoy running in the grass, swimming by the pool and playing miniature golf against the lovely backdrop of the rolling hills and shady trees… By night, the laid-back vibe becomes a lively Halloween bash, filled with activities the whole family can enjoy. So…

Everything You Need to Know About RVing with Kids

Everything You Need to Know About RVing with Kids

To be honest, I never gave much thought to camping or RVing. Sure, as a child I would notice the decked out RV’s with party lights strung festively across the awnings and think it looked cool, but never actually considered RVing myself. I grew up with resort parents, who strongly believe that a vacation is all about relaxation, no manual labor. My dad doesn’t even like to order crab legs, even though he loves the taste. “I don’t want to pay to work for my dinner,” he says. It is…

Big Bear Shores RV Resort with Kids

Big Bear Shores RV Resort with Kids

When we were seventeen HotDaddy and I got into a big argument about where we would retire one day. I wanted to live by the sea and he wanted to live in a cabin deep in the mountains. We laugh about it now, but it was a pretty big deal back when we were emotional hormonal teenagers. Luckily, we live in Southern California where the best of both worlds is absolutely attainable. The beach to the mountains is no more than two hours apart, therefore it is not difficult to…

4th of July at Big Bear Lake

I love to stretch events out as long as possible. Like most birthdays in my family, they are spread out throughout the month and the U.S.A’s BDay is no exception. The last few years we’ve kept the 4th of July pretty mellow with a simple BBQ/pool day and sparklers at home, but this year we went big. We loaded up the family RV and headed up the mountain for an unforgettable weekend long celebration. This year we celebrated 4th of July at Big Bear Lake. Keep the Cost in Check:…

Go Rving

Go Rving

If you would have told me two years ago that I would be taking regular RV trips, I would have laughed. I’ve always been a resort girl, whose idea of a vacation is lounging poolside with a cocktail in my hand; killing time before getting fancy for dinner. I never associated RVing with relaxation, until I tried for myself. Now I’m hooked and don’t go longer than a few weeks before planning another RV trip. Why I love RVing I would have never pegged myself as an RVing Mama, until…
