Here we are, six days until our California trip, which we've been waiting for seemingly forever. We haven't been on a trip since our Vegas trip at the end of April...that's like 5 months! Oh the humanity.
We had plane tickets for this trip but when we bought the new car, we decided to trade them in and drive. It's been quite a few years since we've gone on a big road trip and we are really looking forward to taking the new car down the I-5.
Last night we took the suitcases down to the car to figure out exactly what was going to comfortably fit. We will have enough room for a couple large suitcases, which will be fine. Tracey will have to pack a little less than she normally would for a 2.5 week trip, but this will be a good test for my lovely wife. Anyway, during the second week we are staying at a resort in Carlsbad where we will have full laundry services in our room so we'll have no issue with washing our clothes.
Got some exciting things planned! Six nights at the Grand Californian hotel, a night at Knott's Berry Farm which will, of course, be accompanies by lunch at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Restaurant (Best. Fried. Chicken. EVER), an after-hours food and wine event at the San Diego Zoo, and lots, lots more. Even a surprise or two for the wife!!
Stay tuned to this space and follow along as I will blog about the trip (of course!!)
