We recently took our first family trip with our youngest. We were reluctant to put a toddler on a plane, not wanting to be "those parents" whose kiddo had melt downs on the plane or at the airport. Flying is stressful enough as it is, I get it. Flight delays, cancelations, crowds, and those that just plain have a fear of flying all add to a tension riddled environment. Thankfully, both girls behaved wonderfully. Teeny Tiny was so excited to fly that I think everyone sitting near her was tickled to hear her expressions of joy as we took off and landed. We had an I-Pad for entertainment when she got bored. Big Sissy napped mostly which was good because we had three packed days of sight-seeing beautiful San Diego, California.
Our first stop was the San Diego Zoo.
There were just too many great shots of animals to share. We had a blast.
Next stop was Sea World in San Diego. I was reluctant to go seeing as how we have one two hours away from where we live, but I'm glad we did. It was a great visit and I think the girls' favorite part of the trip.
Here, Teeny Tiny is in Daddy's lap and just a tad distracted by the whale that slid up behind her.
We were in awe of all the sea life...
even though we got a little bashful when it came time to make introductions. ;)
We visited the infamously haunted Whaley House, too. I'll share pictures of that house tour in another post. It was a gripping experience. (hint, hint)
Until then, I hope you're having a great week and finding ways to enjoy your loved ones.
