Road to California Arrival Day

I made it to Ontario, California! Traffic was almost non-existant ... perfect traveling to Southern California!
I checked in at the hotel and then went over to the Convention Center to check out what was going on and to do my check-in for classes. They are just setting up...here are a couple of pictures of the main room where the vendors and quilts will be. Today its empty but just wait until you see it in a couple of days! Vendors and Quilts Oh My!!

After settling into my room, I called room service and ordered in a "Cobb Salad and Ice Tea". It was delicious!

And the view from my balcony....

I could get used to this.... life is good!

OH MY!!!

Room service?!?!?!?

Cobb salad!?!??

Quilts and vendors?!?!?

Palm trees, in ONTARIO, California?!?!

I can assure you, that even in the summer time, Ontario, Canada doesn't look anything like YOUR Ontario! LOL

Lucky ducky! But I know how hard you've worked lately and if anyone deserves this very much needed "R and R", it's you, my little Schnibblette! *grin*

Enjoy, but don't forget to keep us posted on your fun, okay? *VBG*
