Daddy trips

Andy has started a tradition of taking each of the kids on a little trip by themselves. He surprised Mia about 6 AM one morning and let her skip school to go to Six Flags. 
And he took Bode to his first major league baseball game last week. Bode was beyond thrilled. More so about being in the all-you-can-eat deck then the actual game.
I was hopeful Andy would spring for a new cap for the occasion. Didn't happen. Apparently disgusting, stinky, faded caps are a badge of honor. Who knew?
Conveniently both trips happened to include Andy's two favorite things - sports and roller coasters. (You thought I was going to say Mia and Bode, didn't you).

I am completely supportive of this tradition. Mainly the part that doesn't require me to set foot in a Six Flags theme park or sit through a 4 hour baseball game in Texas in July.

We're all winners!

yes, that is awesome! It's interesting to me that our parenting has changed in the last 10-15 years because I feel like not many people did a lot of one-on-one with their kids then but it is happening more now. Which is great! We kind of jumped on the bandwagon when our kids celebrated their 18th birthday by taking them on some little trip with a parent.

Looks like Andy has MRCC shirts to match all his shorts! Or is it shorts to match all his MRCC shirts... I am trying to figure out why Mia is in school this summer, unless this is from earlier. The only time we took L out of school for a fun trip was Unocal Day at Disneyland and I was the kindergarten aide as well, so it was very awkward. But great to have no crowds!
