Trip to Los Angeles and Cousin-Fest?

Mommy bought me a new hat!  Yeah yeah, it's for a 4-5 year old.  But it fits!  That's the important thing!
Daddy bought me a onesie and this hat came with it.  Mommy didn't think it'd fit but it did.

This picture is a little blurry, but Mommy wanted to put it up anyway because of my smile and my pose.  Check me out.

As you can tell by the title, we went to Los Angeles for Memorial Day weekend.  We saw many many people, but first off, we visited some of Daddy's relatives.

Here's Great Uncle Kai and Great Auntie.

Here's Great Uncle and Auntie Chen, then Uncle Todd. 

When I went to their house, they had this bobbing head doggy.  As I mentioned before, I like soft things so I was kissing it.

Then we visited Daddy's Great Aunt.  So I guess she'd be my great great Auntie.

Uncle Eric read my blog before and remembered that I liked cars or anything with wheels.  So he let me play with one of his old toys when we went to Great Auntie Susanna's house.  Thanks Uncle Eric!

Here I am with Alyssa.  She's getting more mobile now, rolling around.

I would not give this car up at all!  All the other ones I was playing with paled in comparison.  Sooo shiny!

Apparently, Cousin-Fest is something Uncle Mike started last year, where all of Mommy's cousins get-together once a year to hang out.  Last year we missed it because they went to Las Vegas, and my folks didn't want to bring me...I think I was only a few months old anyway.  This year, we all went to Disneyland!

Here I am with Alyssa and Uncle Eric.

I was waiting in line to get onto the Dumbo ride.  Mommy tells me he's a flying elephant.  I don't understand how that works at all, but I was excited.
I took a picture with someone named Aladdin.

I was looking at Auntie Jen here.

I got to ride on the carousel again...this time with Daddy!

I also got to drive a car (well, sit in one anyway) at Autotopia, but we have no pictures of that.

The last day I tried a kumquat.  Great Auntie Leona has a tree that has kumquats.  Apparently I like it.

I also fed Grandpa one too.  Apparently that one didn't taste as good, although I had no reaction to it and kept eating it.

Hmmm...what should I order?

On the ride home, Mommy was trying to keep me entertained...I did mention that I like cars, right?

And finally, I entertained myself.

Mommy also took this picture of me sleeping, mainly so she can see how long my eyelashes are.  Silly Mommy.  I don't think they're long at all...I can't see them.

Overall it was a very tiring trip, but I did better on the ride to and from LA as compared to when I was younger.  Guess I'm getting older and more mature!  Next time I'll need to take pictures with all of Mommy's cousins!


  1. Hi Elliot! We had so much fun seeing you and Alyssa appreciated her kiss. When can we see you again? I miss you lots.

  2. Aww, Elliot really does have the best smile! And I love Alyssa's curls, so cute :)

    Elliot, both you and mommy/daddy are turning into car trip pros! Cousin Fest sounds very cool, and any excuse to go to Disneyland is good, right? :)

  3. OMG, he's looking like such a big boy in so many of these pictures! Still has the cheeks but his face seems like it's getting longer.

    Cousin Fest sounds very cool. And what better place than Disneyland?

  4. Yes it was such a wonderful trip! All these treasured memories, waiting to be shown to E when he is older.
