My baby brother and I reminisced about a trip a long time ago. We drove with our parents and our other baby brother to California in 1965. We left from Minnesota and drove what seemed like forever before stopping all night in Provo Utah. Apparently my parents took turns sleeping and driving. I remember being discouraged at not being able to stop at The Great Salt Lake. I was very impressed with the mountains in Provo. We either ate or hid all the fruit we had in the car at the California Border. We didn’t stop at many restaurants..we ate sandwiches and fruit along the way.
We went to see my Dads sister..my Aunt Anna and Uncle Stanley and cousins Clark and Leann for Christmas.
My Mom took this photo. It is marked Disney Land 1965.

We went to Church at Midnight on Christmas Eve, after a supper of Pork Roast, Potatoes and Gravy and Lutefisk at Uncle Stanley’s parents. I can still smell the Lutefisk cooking. Uffda. Lutefisk is the Norwegians idea of a delicacy..it is dried cod that is soaked in lye and then cooked.
As for the trip to Disneyland..I enjoyed the Jungle Cruise and the Haunted House the best! The weather in California was wonderful.
My Dad shared that one time during this trip my baby brother and I were fighting in the backseat. He stopped the car and made us get out and drove away. Of course he didn’t drive far..and when we got back in the car we were well behaved:)
