My daughter and I recently took a trip to visit my grandma in Arizona. While my daughter had met her in person once before, she was only two and a half years old and didn't really remember. Thankfully, my daughter's spoken to her great grandma over Skype a couple of times, and they write to each other here and there. Don't you just love technology and how it can keep us all connected?
The trip was also a wonderful opportunity for my daughter and I to have an adventure together and do some bonding - something we both enjoyed.
We had fun walking with my grandma, admiring all of the pretty flowers and the orange trees (which smelled heavenly), and just spending time visiting.
It was a huge blessing to watch my daughter as she and her great grandma worked on a puzzle together, went through photo albums and treasures collected through the years, and spent time together. Most importantly, I loved to see the memories they were making.
One day, we went to my auntie's house where I got the chance to visit with her and even reconnected with three of my cousins. My daughter met four of her second cousins. It was such a wonderful day!
The trip went by way too quickly, but I know it's one my daughter (and I) will remember fondly for years and years to come.
Is there a particular trip or vacation that you remember as a child that still brings a smile to your face? I'd love for you to share about it!
Here are some of the pretty flowers we saw, along with an orange tree and a serene fountain. I enjoyed taking photos!
