Comments for Ingram Creek
With two children it is easier and less stressful to travel on the morning of a holiday rather than trying to fight the traffic on the night before. So for our Labor Day trip down to South Pasadena we set the clock-radio alarm as if it were a normal work day and were on the road by eight-thirty.
When we head out by the 580 to the I5, we make our first stop for breakfast at a the Ingram Creek restaurant. It's on the southbound side of a truck stop just before the turn off to Westley. The restaurant only serves breakfast and lunch but it's one of the best breakfasts you'll find on the road down to Los Angeles.
This time Harriet was old enough to have a scrambled egg. Sean had silver dollar pancakes. I had their pancake sandwich. Ian had a breakfast sampler (I think). We also filled up on their excellent coffee. I was grateful for the coffee especially since I was doing the driving.
Before breakfast, Sean was given a huge cup of crayons to keep him entertained. I had brought along some coloring books so it worked out perfectly. Sean happily colored Santa using all of his colors making the "jolly old elf" look more like a Berkeley hippy than a Christmas icon.
