Day 5. On to San Diego


We spent last night getting our place ready for our next visitors and packing. We left bright and early for DIA. 

No way do I pay extra to pick our seats ahead of time so of course we were all separate in middle seats. The flight attendant wasn’t happy and asked me if I knew I could pick them in advance. (My brother is a flight attendant, of course AI know that) 

She has us ask people to move their seats and eventually we had 4 seats together and 1 lap child. Gavin and I sat next to this man named Rob from San Diego. He and Having talked about cars and mechanics for 2.5 hours. 

Jake slept 

We told Rob about our past travels and future ones. We talked with him about raising our kids and how we view life. He told us that he thought it was amazing. He told Gavin he was a very lucky kid. He also told us that we restored his faith in humanity. He bought Adam a beer. He was a breath if fresh air and I am do glad we encountered him

Once we landed we went to baggage claim and got our car seats, our suitcase ended up in Orange County, I guess it happens often as the airport codes are similar. They said we would get it tomorrow morning and since I flew standby I wasn’t given any compensation. 

We left and rode a shuttle bus to the rental car spot and a wonderful friendly cheerful amazing customer service rep for Budget, Ariel, helped us out. We ended up with a beast of a dodge charger and headed into town. 

We had a nice lunch and the kids were so well behaved. 

 They played in the waterfall and we toasted huge cups of coffee. Then we headed to the grocery outlet (mind blowing!) and of course Target. 

We checked in to our tiny home and have spent the rest of the evenING relaxing. After this, I am thinking 120sq ft for a family of 5 really could work 🙂 ill do another blog on the actual place in the next few days. 

Highlight of the day….sitting in a police SUV outside of target! 

I must get to bed, tomorrow is the big day! Birthday Celebration at…….Legoland!
