Color Factory

When Victoria Prahl tells you that flights are $50 to San Fransisco and that The Color Factory is about to be done with its month long stint there (or so we thought.  It ended up going longer but we didnt know that at the time. doesnt matter) You buy tickets and do it.  
So we did.
With just the four of us.
It was absolutely incredible.
Everything you could dream up, it was there.  Just a place full of magic and fun.
Jordan Ferney and Oh Happy Day have been inspirations of mine for so long and getting to see the magic and creativity that is in her brain come out like this was beyond inspiring.
Happy faces in neon! Rainbow walkways! Rooms full of confetti! Balloon filled rooms! Disco ball rooms! Giant markers! Scratch and sniff walls! 

The confetti room was a huge hit.  We spent like a full hour in there.
Giant lite brights!
Giant Streamers that you went into and could only see streamers all around you!

And it ended with a giant ball pit and an ice cream cone.
Then we explored San Fran the rest of the 24 hours we were there.
We went to go see the Bridge from a park that Vic had heard of and we ended up having this awesome uber driver who told us to go to a place where you can see the bridge and the sunset and it was just magical.
Truly. Magical.

Getting to spend that short 24 hours with my oldest girls and Vic was just so crazy wonderful and I cant wait for more spontaneous trips that we have together.  I dont really love to travel (I KNOW) until I do it.  And I am very bad at carving out time with just a few kids or one at a time and getting to do both in such an amazing place- it just was perfect.  Turns out that San Fransisco and all of its beautiful color and amazing places and hills is one of my favorite cities.  Southwest, I need a wanna get away deal.


Haiti with Caris

I can not put into words adequately what it meant to get to go to Haiti with Caris and see all of the incredible work that they are doing.  It is absolutely astounding and humbling and exciting on every level.  They are the most incredible people bringing healing and life all over the country.
We got to go on a helicopter ride and see the other side of the island where Caris is also located in Cap Hatien and it was breathtaking.
And of course the pilot ended up loving mom so much that he came to see us leave the next day ha!

The Cap-Haiten branch did presentations for Mom and Christopher to show all the incredible work they are doing and I just was so humbled to hear their incredible work.
 Then we hiked up to the Citadel and it was just beautiful. 

 Then we got to hear the incredible presentations of the Port au Prince side of Caris and it was incredible.  We walked into this incredible surprise party with signs and balloons and skits that showed their work, a song they sang in french and english, many people who spoke, cake, pizza, popcorn and so much more.  It was just amazing.

We saw a rainbow on our helicopter ride and it was breathtaking.
I can never thank Caris for having me and hosting me and I will never forget this trip or all the incredible work being done in Haiti!
