Daddy Daughter Dates

One of David's favorite things to do with Olivia was to go to the Farmers Market in Avila on Friday nights during the summer.  Out here, those dates got replaced with trips to the playground, exploring local swimming parks and various Meet the Creature classes.  Since it's gotten a bit cooler here, the swim dates have been replaced by some beautiful daddy/daughter hikes.

Last Saturday, they explored South Mountain together.  Here are a few pictures I stole from his iPhone.

Yesterday, they explored a different trail on South Mountain.  Olivia is really into maps -- more specifically, treasure maps.  So, David pulled out the map of trails and got Olivia really excited about going on the hike.  Once they were there, he planted a few little trinkets {Snow White and the Seven Doors* figurines} for her to find.  She loved it and I know he loved spending lots of quality time with her.  Then, last night, he took both girls to the playground so that I could get a few things done around the house.  He's basically a big kid at heart, so I know they have so much fun hanging out with just him, and I love having either one-on-one time with Sydney or just some me time.

Happy Hikers!

Up at the top of the mountain they found Snow White's cottage...AND Snow White!

{It's kind of hard to see, but that blonde hair next to Sydney's hat is from the back of Olivia's head.  They are both in the baby swing together!}

Thanks to David for seeing the importance of spending time with each of the girls.  These are memories they will have {and love} for a lifetime!  

*Olivia thinks it's Seven Doors instead of Seven Dwarfs.

Those are such cute pictures. I know Olivia loves spending one on one time with her daddy as much as David loves doing special things with Olivia. Don't forget when Sydney gets a little bit bigger she is going to need to get that one on one time with her daddy too. David you are a good father and I appreciate the quality of time you spend with both of your girls.
