Crazy California Road Trip: Day 5

Day 5
Carlsbad, CA to San Dimas, CA
82 Miles

Goodbye, Carlsbad and 80-degree weather. Hello, sweltering 100+ heat of L.A.

But it's worth it. 


It's Amy! And Patrick (not pictured)! And their cute little baby!

And their not-so-cityish-yard!

The porch provides some relief from the temps. Grant provides some entertainment for baby V.

For lunch we visit a diner on Route 66. 

 I order an omelet that I'm still working on nearly 48 hours later.

We visit a book/toy store where I take these photos of the kids through a prism toy:

They declared them, "Creepy."

Back at Amy's, the kids work on their travel journals.

After dinner, it's back to our (new) motel, a somewhat sketchy environment with bedspreads that look like this:

You can't see it, but there's a dog on there somewhere. It amused the children.

Tomorrow, lots of driving. :(
