We are in California! It was a long journey that started at 2:45 am our time. At 4 am we drove on snow covered roads towards the airport and arrived at the gate just in time to walk on the plane. Corey had to drive through a big snow drift in the long term lot just to get the car parked. That is the closest we've ever come to missing a flight! It took longer than expected to get out of the house and then the drive took almost twice as long as usual, but we made it and that is all that matters.
Lily did really well on the flights, the ups and downs didn't phase her a bit. She really liked opening and closing the window shade, playing with the sky mall magazine, and slapping the monitor on the seat in front of her (which we were constantly having to stop her from doing).
Of course, the reason we are out here is to visit Lily's lovely birth family. Her Nanny was so excited to see her. Lily will get some Nanny/granddaughter time while Corey and I explore San Francisco a bit. Lily's aunt Tami graciously lent us a car so we can get around easier. We have tickets to the night tour of Alcatraz tomorrow. We got a few other good leads on things to see, but please leave a comment if you have any suggestions of things that we shouldn't miss.
Photos to come, I'm sure!
