For Gabriel's birthday on Wednesday, I took him up to San Francisco to meet with his dad, and we all went to The Exploratorium. When I was trying to decide what to do for Gabriel's birthday, my mom suggested this. She pointed out that what Gabriel would really like is to spend a whole day with both of his parents totally focused on him, without other kids or girlfriends or distractors or whatever.
The thing about children of single parents is that they spend a lot of time craving time with their parents, and I was happy to be able to give him that.
And she was right.
So that's what I planned out.
Gabriel had a lovely time.
Here are some pictures.
