And They're Off
Sorry for the horrible photo. It was early and Lily hates to smile before 8 am, so I had to take it fast.

Do you remember when Carver and David took their trip to San Francisco? David promised each child when they turned 10 years old he would take them on a trip. Just them and dad. It was supposed to be a train trip, but now that it is Lily's turn, and knowing her personality, we decided a plane would be the better way to go. They left yesterday morning for San Diego for four fun-filled days with an extreme focus on animals.That's Lily's major love of all time, you know. So while we are here in Colorado, trying to find oxygen and blue sky with all the smoke in the air from the AZ wildfires, they are frolicking on the beach, going to the zoo, swimming with dolphins at Sea World, going on a whale-watching boat ride, admiring sea lions, and anything else that Lily wants to try. David is "travel guide supreme"--seriously, if you ever go anywhere he's the person to travel with. I am so excited for them. They really, really, REALLY need this time together. I hope they come home with a deeper love and appreciation for one another, plus a lot of fantastic stories to tell.

I absolutely adore this!!! I've been wanting to take my kids on solo trips, but have yet to do it. I can't wait to hear what kind of animal Lily comes home asking for!!!

What a wonderful tradition. Wishing them time to connect and enjoy each other.

This is such a great idea! I hope to implement something similar with my kids & hubs (thanks to you). I think that solo time is so important. I hope they had a wonderful trip!!
