Jill is usually the parent who organizes her family’s vacations. “Planning anything for children is a delicate balance between what you want them to see and what you want them to show you,” Jill says. As if on cue, Riley comes over wrapped in a towel and starts to draw. “At home, you see them playing the same games over and over again, drawing the same pictures. You see where they get stuck in their creativity, their visions, their imagination.” But, she says, one of the most powerful parts of a vacation for her is seeing her kids reinvigorated. “You just know that wherever they go, something there will inspire them to see things just a little bit different and it will be with them going forward, in the future,” she says.
