Every summer we fly my niece out to San Diego (from Boston) to spend some quality time with us. This summer marked her fourth year (and fifth trip) west. It was also her longest trip to date, a whole five weeks. Five weeks with a 6 yr old is extremely rewarding, but also quite exhausting and sometimes challenging. Although some patience was tested on both of our ends, it was an adventurous and memorable trip. Every year we try to spend her time here doing things that she is unable to do at home- camping, surfing, fishing, climbing… we definitely pack it in. We even got to do a boating/camping trip to Catalina with our/her friends this year. And although we did all these different things, fun things that I know she will always remember, she is still a 6 yr old little girl whose favorite activity here was just the opportunity to be a princess at Frozen camp.
