Anaheim, California ‘21

Every year ever since I could remember, my family & I would go to California. Due to obvious reasons in 2020, we weren’t able to go. I know, I’m spoiled for being upset about it. To be honest, though, I’m thankful we didn’t have the opportunity to go last year because A) I needed to be humbled & B) it made going this year that much more enjoyable & appreciated! We always drive because it’s only 4–6 hours depending on traffic. I drove with my sister & her fiancé…probably about an hour or so away from the beach, they played 20 questions. 5 minutes later they were arguing about if “hot dog” was an easy one to guess or not. They tried again, & then went on about if “shark” was an easy guess or not. & also if the other person was asking the right questions & how they would’ve known what to ask if the other was giving wrong hints. Road trips with them are an entertainment in itself.
