Got up early, we ended up staying at a Holiday Inn Express. We had a 5.5 hour ride ahead of us to get to Fallbrook (near San Diego) to see my mom.
It was going to be a surprise that we were visiting so, Bud (my step-dad) told her only this morning that we were coming. It was so funny that she did not believe him and thought he was just teasing her!
Finally to get her to believe him, he had to show her all the e-mails about us coming into California.
On the way down to Fallbrook we stopped at a great Mexican Restaurant for enchiladas and burritos, yummy!
It was a very long drive through the desert, lots of cactus and even wind farms. Everything was extremely interesting and nothing like New York, a totally different world.
Five hours later we arrived at my moms house to a very happy reunion!!
Of course we went to the casino for dinner and gambling in the evening.
