How do you keep your kids happy with the age difference? Do you find it hard to plan outings to fit your kids different interests?

I have always wondered about this as well. I don't think their is a great answer. But I would love to know what other people think on this one.

I find it a little hard at times. Like Kali is getting to the age where shes not into the Easter egg hunts and Alaina still has a few more years so I feel bad that we go to the events and Kali really doesnt want to participate. But Alaina loves to do it.
So day trips are hard to keep everyone happy. So I try to plan some geared towards Alaina's age, and then some geared to Kali's age.
I also started to take the girls out for one on one time so they can do something fun for them, and not worry about the other being bored and such.

I don't really have an issue since my big kids are technically adults now and do their own things. We do have family dinners out here and there and it's never been a problem.
