My favorite giggles are around the 35 seconds mark
In other news...-We dropped our vehicle off in Atlanta to be shipped to Korea. It is estimated to arrive about a month after we do.
-We survived the final week of stress in Alabama, filled with cleaning, packing, shipping, saying goodbyes, etc.
-We got to visit some friends in Atlanta, while we were in town. I especially loved seeing Lucy play with their almost-two-year-old daughter. It was so much fun watching the two interact and even take a bubble bath together. Oh, the cuteness! Made me long for an older sibling for Lu...will have to settle for a younger one...someday. :)
-Survived the 5 hour plane ride to Los Angeles with a 9 month old. It went considerably well. Lucy had a couple of, shall we say, vocal moments, but there was no sustained crying or screaming (from either of us). She again received kudos from surrounding passengers at the end of the flight for a job well done.
-Met some of Jonathan's extended family members here in Cali whom I had never met. Naturally, Lucy loves them :) Jonathan's Aunt Corrine even watched her for a couple of hours while we went and scoped out the Regan Presidential Library, which served as a perfect introduction to California with it's breathtaking views atop a mountain. Due to time constraints (no bottle left for Lucy), we mostly sped through the museum section, which I hope to revisit sometime in the future, to see the reason J placed this stop as his #1 Must See in LA---Air Force One. I love this man, and I love seeing him geek out to all things aviation. Yes, we got to walk through Regan's Air Force One. We also gleaned some information about the President along the way. What I didn't glean was an awesome (but expensive) jelly bean container with a presidential seal on it that I really wanted but didn't pass the budget committee's aproval. Ahh well...maybe on my next trip to LA.
-I have been stunned by how absolutely beautiful California is, and I've only been her for a day. I never expected to like it so much. Honestly, I'm not sure what I expected, but whatever it was, Cali has certainly surpassed it. I even asked J what Army bases are here....sadly none with Chinooks. I guess we will just have to visit again.
