My oldest son and I stole away for a hike in the San Gabriel Mountains. We found a rope swing and tested it with reckless abandon.
We brought sketchbooks and spent time watching and listening to water. A Rufous hummingbird flew right by us and hovered next to us for a full two minutes.
Shoes were shed. Trees were climbed.
I love solo dates one on one with my kids. We spend so much time together as a family, it really is a treat to have some date time.
