Suri Cruise got a special send off from one of her buddies Friday. After being strapped into the helicopter that was transporting the six-year-old and her mom Katie Holmes from New York, Suri got a big thumbs up from their bodyguard.
Suri looked a little anxious. She had her favorite blanket with her — Tom Cruise‘s daughter is rarely seen without one of her blankies — and a small cloth doll tucked in to the seat with her.

Katie had her own moment before boarding. After giving the bodyguard a big hug, the back of her dress blew up — Marilyn Monroe style — and Holmes let loose with an embarrassed laugh.
Katie had been in Kent, Connecticut, where she was shooting a modern day version of The Seagull and her presence in the quiet village caused a big of a stir.
“We had noticed that she had been here a couple of weeks,” Mike Moriarty, co-owner of J.P. Gifford Market & Catering Company, told The Litchfield County Times.
“There was a little bit of buzz. Someone in her entourage was in almost every day; she was in a couple of times. We were happy to see her.”
