We just took a four day trip with our 10 year old grandson. Took him to celebrate his birthday with his cousins. We had such a good time in Seattle. Ate way too much of far too many wrong things, but it was such fun to watch him be so grown up on the airplane, on boats, at fancy restaurants, museums, dancing to video games and helping assemble some very complex Legos. His three requests - Space Needle, beach, ferry - all turned out great. It was such a joy to have him to ourselves. No fighting with his big brother or little sister. He was a little tense on take off going up, but not on the way home. Lunch at Space Needle was about $350 for son's family of 4 and dh, me and gs. But, it was so worth it. A rainy day, but so many fun memories. The time flew by. So glad we did this. Will take his brother somewhere in February and then his little sister when she is older and our son's girls when they get old enough. This is a dream of mine...to have each alone with us for some special time of making great memories. I so hope that if when they are older and have things they need to talk about and maybe are nervous to share with parents, they will feel safe with us to share and be encouraged.
