Christmas in San Diego – Part 1

I did it again – I had to split our trip up into different blog posts so I didn’t overwhelm you with a LONG post. 

This year we headed to San Diego  to spend Christmas with my brother and his family.  My parents headed down a few days before we did.  We knew that with such a long drive – about 9 hours – that we would need to split the drive up.  Scott’s best friend lives in Fresno so we headed there for our first night – it was about a 4 hour trip from our house – not too bad.  We got to meet their daughter Emily for the first time.

The next morning we headed out for the longer drive.  We left Fresno around 9:30 and pulled into Oceanside around 5:15 – yes it took us that long.  I don’t think that there is any way that you can not hit LA traffic.  Even at getting into the area around 2:00 it was crazy.  It took us about 2.5 hours to go 60 miles – from Burbank to Irvine.  Ok so we did take a little detour and drove by the entrance to Disneyland, but still. 

We finally arrived in Oceanside and here’s where my different blogs come in.

Ugh on the traffic. It was like my horrific drive back to Virginia after Thanksgiving!
