Hot Trip to the Southland

The red-headed grandchildren, Jackson & Hermione.

It's been awhile since I visited southern California, so I scheduled a trip in late August and invited Darla along. So great that we all get along so well. The weekend started with a cancelled flight from Sacramento bot Ontario, but never fear, a later flight had room and we were only an hour late.

While Jill worked, the rest of us went golfing at Shandin Hills Golf Club. It was very fun on a nice inexpensive course, and Nathan had a great round. Afterward, we had a nice lunch at Panerra. The afternoon was spent relaxing and watching the Olympics.

The next morning, we went to Loma Linda church. The sermon was a one-man drama which was quite good, but the highlight was a fantastic song by a 6th grade girl; "Were You There".

What to do on Sunday, Jill's day off? We decided on a waterpark: Raging Waters in San Dimas. It was a very hot day and the cool water was a welcome sight. Although the park was crowded, we had time to enjoy all the slides except the Dragon's Den. Especially fun was the first slide, so fast, disorienting, WET!

Afterward, dinner at Lucille's. Gotta love a good BBQ. Gumbo, ribs, brisket. Yum!

On our final day, Darla and I went shopping at Victoria Garden while Jill & Nathan worked. So sad. It was nice to enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee and do a little shopping before picking up Nathan at work and driving to the airport. All in all, the weekend was too short, but lots of fun.
