Plane Ride & Hanukkah Party -- CA vacation, part 1

So much to write about our California adventure! I think I will blog in parts... part one being the plane ride and Hanukkah Party that we attended in Marina Del Rey. I was very nervous about the loooong plane ride, but overall, Adam did great. Thank G-d for Grandma who was so patient and entertaining! Here is a photo of them enjoying the flight:

Once we arrived to LAX, we headed to Marina Del Ray for a Hanukkah Party given by Uncle Jeff's parents, Allan and Rosemary. It was so wonderful seeing them and we had a really nice time. Their condo sits right on the beach... it's gorgeous! Adam was so happy to run around after being stuck in a plane. Cousin Jake was also in town visiting from Chicago so we got to spend a few hours with him. We headed out to Palm Springs around 4 pm and we arrived around 7:30 pm (10:30 pm D.C. time)... more on Palm Springs tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some photos from the Hanukkah Party:

Adam watching Cousin Jake in awe (while sitting on the air hockey table -- oops!)

Adam and Dada... look at that view!

Adam was so happy to see Aunt Elizabeth (and Uncle Steven) who met us at the party!

Looks like you had a great trip. I noticed that Adam had his own seat. Did they have an open seat next to you for him, or did you request one? Did you have to pay? I was just curious for future reference.
