5 Minutes For Mom.
We stayed in Santa Monica and were able to enjoy some free time of our own before and after the Activision event. We had a great time getting out and walking around, exploring the area a little bit. I thought I would share a few pics with you...
We were only a short walk away from the Santa Monica Pier.
There were lots of fun things on the Pier -- shops, games, rides, food & treats, etc.
After we took in the sights on the Pier, we hit the beach to get our feet wet. The water was freezing!
One of the most memorable parts of our trip happened when we were on our way to Activision. As we were riding to the event, we suddenly saw lots of people excitedly running around outside and on the sidewalks. They were all looking upward and pointing. This was the day that the space shuttle Endeavor was being flown over LA on it's way to LAX. When we looked out the car window, there it was, flying right over us...complete with a fighter jet escort. I cannot tell you how exciting this was to see! My photo didn't turn out that great, but we really got an excellent view.
It was a fantastic trip and I'm so lucky to have been able to share it with my son. Many thanks to 5 Minutes For Mom for letting me represent them on the Activision Skylanders Giants trip.
