First Plane Ride!

We split our trip to Cali in two parts - first we went to SF for a couple of days and then we joined Noonie, Papa A.J. and the rest of the gang for some fun family time. Armed with more snacks and distractions than I care to count, we left for the airport at 4:45 a.m.! Amazingly, Grace was a very happy camper when we woke her up - maybe it was because she saw Noonie and Papa A.J. and knew something had to be up! Even though we were borrowing all the essentials, including a stroller from my step-bro and sis-in-law (thanks guys!!!), I'm so glad that I went with Noonie's suggestion to pack the cheapo umbrella stroller to use at the airport! We had to rush during our connection and I can't imagine toting all our bags while carrying our 29lb. wiggly little pumpkin!

Helping Mama pack the night before I can do it, Mama Are you sure this thing closes??? In such a good mood, even at 4:30 in the morning! Early Morning Travelers
I'm ready to go on my first plane ride! Ready to board! While the guys were catching some Zzzz's, Noonie, Grace, and I played a bit - he, he, he! Here's Grace copying Daddy :) Luckily we had a couple of spare seats on our flight and she had a chance to play around. Little monkey making friends Taking every opportunity to stretch those little legs And finally, a lifesaver! Thanks Aunt Lexi for letting us borrow your portable DVD player - Grace LOVED watching Elmo's Summer Vacation!! Stay tuned for more pics!!
