For years, Lillian’s made her birthdays all about doing something new for the family. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area, we’ve had lots of different local experiences to choose from. She wants the family to learn about and appreciate the area they’re from.
This year, the excursion was almost right in our backyard. It turns out that the hills behind Milpitas hold a convenient site for hang gliding and paragliding. We’ve lived here for the kids’ whole lives, and never bothered to learn more about what was available so close to us.
For her own birthday, Lillian treated the kids to some tandem hang gliding experiences above our little town. I bet they wish it was her birthday all the time!
