San Diego: Road Trip

I think the only way I'm going to blog about this trip, will be to break it up into the most memorable bits.  So I'll start at the beginning!  (I now have the Sound of Music song Do-Re-Mi going through my head, "Let's start at the very beginning...")  We left at 5:00 am Wednesday morning, now mind you I had hoped to leave by 4:00 am.  However, I didn't get the packing completed until the night before and didn't go to sleep until 11:30.  So I was exhausted.  Anyways, we left and made it all the way to Beaver before we stopped for a bathroom break (my bladder could only hold so much Diet Coke).  Next stop was St. George's Jack in the Box for some Sausage Croissant Sandwiches, YUM!!!  After that stop, I had pushed through passed Vegas and stopped in Primm.  Now Daniel slept from St. George to Primm and with the little sleep I had, I was having a BEAST of a time staying awake.  So I stopped in Primm, filled up the tank w/ gas, found a shady spot and napped with Daniel.  I slept for about 45 minutes and when I woke up Daniel was up watching Nacho Libre on my phone.  :)

Have you ever been to Primm?  What a funny little town!  It's in the middle of nowhere, but it has about three or four casino/hotels and these amazing outlet stores (Coach, Juicy Couture and Sephora).  After Primm, we decided that we would make one more stop, but I wasn't sure where I wanted to stop.  Well, we started seeing signs for Peggy Sue's Diner.  I hadn't heard about it and we were hungry so we stopped and BOY what a treasure!!!  This place has been open for 47 years and the walls are lined with ol' movie stars that have eaten there. 

(These were called the James Dean Fries.)

(This was THE most amazing banana split EVER!)

(He got down to two pegs!  What a little genius!)

(They had a stand of funny hats in the gift shop, lol!)

(Doesn't the lighting in this pic make me look like a mannequin?  Creepy!)

We loved it!!  The food was great, the music was great and Daniel couldn't get enough of the fries dipped in brown gravy.  We loved it so much actually that we stopped there on our way home for breakfast!  Mind you it was the best busicuit and gravy breakfast I have ever had. 

The drive home was the WORST; I hated the fact that I had to leave and yet I couldn't wait to get home and get out of the car.  Daniel was GREAT in the car; I packed him a new Scooby Doo Leap Frog Book, some toys, paper & crayons and LOTS of treats.  He slept an average of four hours there and four hours on the way back.  He would make these adorable sleeping arrangements with his seatbelt, pillow and blanket.  I can't believe I didn't pull over to get a picture of it.  Anyways, I'm glad we drove it was a fun trip. 

Special thanks must be given to Fred & Kennen Bandley for letting us use their Magellan GPS (it totally saved me!!!) and to the cast of Glee for keeping me entertained and alert for most of the drive!!!
