Last weekend my dear friend Carolyn and I took Emma and Carolyn’s niece Gracie to the Portland Holiday Food and Gift Festival. It had been a long time since I had done something with just Emma, and I know how important it is to maintain individual one on one time with each child.
The two five year olds had so much fun on a shopping play date together.
We’ve attended the Holiday Food and Gift Festival a couple of times before and its the start of a new tradition for us to ring in the Holiday season.
I always walk away with some great local finds ranging from jams and chocolates, caramel apple and wooden toys, and even a bottle of Crater Lake Hazelnut Espresso infused vodka (it is that good).
We were tired after the day, but had fun and all made memories.
When was the last time you did something special with just one of your children?
