Been There, Done That

We just finished a long road trip to visit family in Southern California.  Hours of driving meant a lot of stories told to Smiley, and a lot of Smiley talking.

My favorite exchange happened on a very un-scenic portion of Highway 46, between the 5 Freeway and Highway 101.
Smiley: Are we at Grandma and Grandpa's?

Me: Not yet.  They are still far away.

Smiley: They live in California.

Me: Yes, they live in California.  We have been driving through California for a long time.

Mommy: Ever since we went down from the big mountains with snow.

Smiley: This road is in California?

Me: Yes, this road is in California.

Smiley: [Sounding satisfied] Then I've seen California.
