The two Toms unloaded the van. Of course they wouldn’t let me lift anything. My job was to keep an eye on the van. But I was under strict orders that if someone wanted the van and the stuff inside, to let them have it. (My son is very protective like his dad.) I smiled the whole time watching them work together.
Unfortunately we were not able to bring his bed because it didn’t fit. We decided to take him shopping for a new bed. It took some convincing but we won. Sleeping on an air mattress had not been comfortable, but my son wouldn’t complain about that.
I wanted to experience an In and Out burger. (Pictured below.) Any one I’ve met from California talked it up. It was a good burger.
That’s my boy below at In and Out.
And that’s my honey.
Driving around you couldn’t help but notice all the palm trees. The pictures below are for you Tina.
After we bought a bed, we found a couch at a thrift store. Then we went food shopping. What kind of mom would I be if I didn’t cook him a meal? So I made him chicken cutlets and pasta with broccoli. It was great fun for me to cook my son a meal. We really enjoyed doing the mom and dad thing on this trip. We also stopped at this great mall where we checked out the new iPhone. Really cool.
Next up – Hollywood.
