Our big trip to California started with a very early wake up call to get to the airport in time for Ellington's first airplane ride. I was so excited to see her reaction to take-off / landing, but she seemed very unimpressed with the whole thing. We stared out the airplane window as we took off and I said 'Ellington, look! We are leaving the ground.' Her response: 'Truck' She saw a much more interesting truck driving around on the tarmac and then she turned to me to grab my phone and started taking the first of 100 photos. Her new favorite activity is taking pictures and saying 'cheese' with each photo... Does this me I might be a bit of a momarazzi?
We ended our day at the Santa Monica pier. It was a little chilly and very foggy.
Due to Ellington's fear on our local carousel, we decided to skip the rides at the amusement park. Besides, we weren't prepared for the cold weather, so we quickly walked down the pier for a photo op and then through the park before heading back to the car.
