Before leaving DFW, Laurel was thrilled because I bought her dinner from McDonald's (her first time this year), then she thrilled me by choosing fruit and milk.

While waiting in PHX, we bought postcards for her friends and split a bagel from Starbucks, then she listened to Here Come the ABCs! and entertained me singing along with "E Eats Everything" (like children).

After arriving at ONT, she refused to get on the escalator down to the baggage claim and wouldn't step out of the way to find the elevator (are the stairs always closed there?), so I had to pull her on several steps above me because I was loaded down like a burro with my purse and our carry-on bags.

Even though it was past midnight by our internal clocks, she stayed awake and talked to Sarah all the way to Montebello, reading every sign she saw and cheering when we pass a Fry's.

It's a work in progress. (:

She's more into flash than power right now, so when asked what Fry's sells, she said "pink iPods and light-up [USB] cables!".

Next time, maybe she'll see the NewEgg billboards. That should cause major cheer.

Oooh, I haven't seen those yet! I'll have to keep an eye out for them next time we're down there. Thanks for the heads-up. (:

Awesome that she wanted fruit and milk at McDonald's. YAY!

Fear of escalators? Cute! But I can see how that would also be quite annoying!

I am /very/ pleased that she chose fruit instead of fries and proud that part of it is because of what we offer at home. Have you seen the statistic that a quarter of all vegetables consumed by Americans are french fries? (It's from a 1998 study by Susan Krebs-Smith published in Cancer.)

A fear of escalators is the kind of thing I expect to gently tease her about when she was older, but it's only of escalators going down. It's no weirder than me being afraid of the bunk bed ladder when I was her age, although I can no longer remember why I was afraid of it since I had the bottom bunk.
