A few years ago we decided to stop giving birthday gifts and instead plan birthday trips. This year, Franklin’s birthday coincided with the Starmus Festival in Tenerife in the Canary Islands. This festival was a special tribute this year to Stephen Hawking, who also was also a speaker. Danielle attended the week long festival and was able to meet and speak with the likes of Brian Greene, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Cox, and Richard Dawkins.
While Danielle was passing time with Nobel Prize winners and astronauts, Franklin was enjoying his time by exploring the island of Tenerife.
