On Saturday we decided it was about time to give baby girl her first trolley ride.
Our little fashionista could hardly contain her excitement once we arrived at the trolley station.
We decided to head to Old Town for the day.
Once the trolley actually started moving, Emerson was in heaven.
She really, really loved it.
We were all starving by the time we arrived so we stopped at the first Mexican food restaurant that we found. It was AMAZING. (As I'm sure you can tell by the bean dip all over E's face.)
There are a lot of museums and re-creations of historic buildings to look at, but Emerson was more interested in dancing on the drainage grate.
This picture cracks me up. E dropped her glasses and one of the lenses popped out. She didn't even notice when we put them back on her.
I was SO excited when we found this tree. Jesse's family and I came to San Diego 12 years ago for Jesse's graduation from boot camp. One of the places we visited was Old Town and we have pictures in front of this very tree. I have to go dig them out for comparison...
As you can see, the trip was definitely a success. The trolley ride was a total of about an hour and 40 minutes. While it was plenty for us, Emerson just couldn't get enough. She kept telling us "ride the train again" once we got off.
We did see some interesting characters along the way so it's probably not something I would do myself but I can definitely foresee another family ride on the trolley. We'd do just about anything to see that precious grin again.
