Toby and I drive down to Southern California on Thursday (March 9th) and stay with his sister Martha and her family in Burbank. On the way we stop by my parents house in Santa Nella. On Friday we go to Disney's Caliifornia Adventure and Disneyland... BRRR it was FREEZING! Saturday we toured Griffith Park and Pasadena where we had lunch at El Cholo Cafe. Sunday we drove back to the bay area via Highway 101, I-5 was closed due to snow.

Thursday on the drive down we stop by my parents house for lunch. Here I am with my mom and Chicka.

My dad built Chicka a dog house.

On Friday we go to California Adventure first and then Disneyland.

It was cold, wet and windy... it never past 53 degrees that frigid Friday. We watched the Bug show to be out of the rain.
