Typically Matt and I like to go to California a few times a year. We have a second home in La Verne, which is in East LA County, about 30 minutes from Disneyland and Huntington Beach. The drive is an easy six hours from our Arizona house. We love to pack up the dogs for relaxing trips, and that’s what we planned to do this past weekend. We made it to California safely, but plans took a quick, unexpected turn a day after we got into town.
