Harry Potter World- Trip #3

One of our favorite traditions has been taking our kids on a one-on-one vacations with our kids to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios after they finished reading all seven Harry Potter books.

Zac and Drew finished the books in 5th and 6th grades, but Kaitlyn made a later start into the series and finished this past summer, right before 8th grade.

This trip has been such a treasure with each of the kids, but right now I am basking in the joy of our trip with Kaitlyn. We try to take opportunities to spend time alone with each of our kids, but having a few days focused on just one is so incredibly special.

I wish that I could take the feelings of being on that trip with her at this particular moment in time and put it in a bottle that I can revisit in the future. I just want to remember her unfettered joy. I want to remember how many time she said, “I’m SO happy!” I want to remember her beaming smile through every ride. I want to remember she and I riding the Hogwarts ride over and over again as we pretended to talk to the characters and be part of the story.

I don’t want to forget this precious time when she wanted me to braid her hair, have a matching backpack, and hold my hand as we walked. Time moves all too quickly. I will hold on to the treasure of these memories for as long as I can.
