Scenes from My Weekend - Aerial View

Flying over San Francisco. View of the Bay Bridge and you can just make out the Golden Gate Bridge in the upper portion of the picture.

Flying over the Sierra Nevadas. Bye Bye Lake Tahoe.

Flying into New York City with a view of Manhattan. That big rectangular square? Central Park.

Flying over the Rockaways as we make our way to JFK airport. 
This weekend, we returned home to Brooklyn from our two week vacation in San Francisco and Lake Tahoe. While we were on the plane, Ed kept tapping my shoulder from the row behind me to ask for my phone so that he could take pictures out the window. When we travel with the boys on planes, since rarely can the four of us sit together, we usually get two seats together in one row and two seats together in the row behind. One of us usually sits with our younger son E in the back row since he's only two and a half and still kicks the seat in front of him. This way, he's kicking his brother's seat and not a stranger's seat. I was pretty amazed when I looked at the pictures that Ed took. It was an incredibly clear day. I particularly like the picture of the Rockaways. You can see the waves breaking along the beach.

After two weeks away from home, I'm super happy to be home. We spent all of Sunday unpacking. doing laundry and grocery shopping. The boys were so happy to be reunited with their toys.

I know the feeling of being home.. It is good to be home. Although I am sure you loved every bit of your trip. Next time if you get to Southern Cali. I say Surf Sesh ;-)

gorgeous pics!! I bet you are glad to be home, despite what sounds like an awesome trip!

Thanks! Yes, it is nice to be home. I always seem to appreciate home a bit more when we've been away. It was lovely visiting with family but exhausting at the same time :-)

I believe that a surf sesh in Southern California definitely has my name on it sometime in the near future! It's been so long since I've been to SoCal. When i do make it out, you'll have to tell me where I should go :-)

Thank you! I am still amazed that these pictures came out so well from my iPhone (with a little help from Instagram). So happy to meet another Brooklyn girl!

I don't know why I haven't taken more photos from the plane during our travels. It would be a great way to remind our girls of what they saw from the clouds point of view. This pictures turned out amazing and I could see the Golden Gate Bridge and it made me smile! Love San Francisco!!

I usually never take pictures on the plane. Actually, I was kind of annoyed when my husband kept poking me in the shoulder for my phone but so glad he took these pictures. They are some of my favorite. I do love that you can see the tiny red speck of the Golden Gate Bridge towers.
