Our time in California was mostly good. We did encounter a few rude people, but I’m over it now. There’s always a jerk everywhere, but for the most part we had a good time. I especially enjoyed our time on the coast, and it makes me a little sad that we’ve decided to go inland. More on that later.
To get the kids excited about this trip, we told them about some of the fun things we’d be doing, like visiting Six Flags Great Adventure, home to the (at the time) tallest roller coaster in the world.
We found plenty of free things to do in San Diego and surrounding areas, which means we had a little money in the budget for a treat dinner. So, while Dan went to meet his idol, I took the kids to dinner.

We’re really enjoying it here at Sweetwater Summit Regional Park, and want to stay an extra night. So I call the gate and ask if there are any sites available.

Getting into the space was a little challenging, but completely worth it.
