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.
