California Trip

So here's the rundown of the California trip:

-Drove to Vegas and watched the Cirque de Soleil show Ka
-Stayed at the renowned Whiskey Pete's in Primm, NV

-Drove to LA; ate at the Grand Lux Cafe, drove around Melrose, and went to the Soda Pop Stop
-Saw a movie in Irvine
-Stayed with Jake and Carter in Ladera Ranch

-Drove to Carlsbad and went to Legoland
-Hung out with Asher, Jake and Carter

-Drove to LaCanada to eat lunch and visit with Grandmother and Grandfather Welch
-Hit Hollywood on the way back to Jake and Carter's

-Went to a Lamborghini dealership and a Ferrari dealership (on the same street!)
-Stopped in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo
-Stayed at the Carmel Valley Ranch

-Drove the 17 Mile Drive
-Saw Carmel, Monterey, and Cannery Row
-Went to a mini-golf/arcade place to avoid sitting in traffic
-Stayed at Benjy and Carrie's

-Thanksgiving at the Grovers
-Food, family, football, and the Wii

-Enjoyed Berkeley: the campus, Chinese food, and gelato
-Drove through San Francisco
-Went to an after-Thanksgiving pie party
-Stayed in Concord with Benjy's parents

-Started the drive home, so we watched the BYU game in a sports book in Reno (go Cougs!)
-Stayed in Winnemucca, NV

-Stopped at the Salt Flats

We drove the Honda 2500 miles in less than 10 days! We already have a list of things we'll need to do on our next trip (or 2 or 3...because I doubt a roadtrip of this magnitude will ever happen again). But it was a blast! I really enjoyed the quality time with Joe. And I have to say the trip probably would not have been possible without the iPod and the GPS system.

How fun! You are so cute Brittney! And cudos to you because even with Scott, I don't know if I could have sat in a car for that long.
