Photo Friday: No Smiles at Rodeo Beach


I’m always trying to capture the best scenery shot and get everyone to smile (no fake smiles allowed). Unfortunately, that doesn’t always work out.  This week’s Photo Friday post is one of those moments. We were on a hike at Rodeo Beach in Marin County — see my list of favorite kid-friendly spring excursions around the Bay Area — and there was no way I was going to get Devon to smile for this fabulous view shot. In fact, he was in the middle of telling us how exhausted he was from our 10-minute hike up the hill — his moment of exasperation is clear.
In restrospect, I’m loving the photo because it provides a rich memory of our experience and what it can be like to hike with a 6-year-old! For more Photo Friday posts, visit Delicious Baby.

Coronavirus Update

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
