My husband plays semi-pro football.
He recently had a game a couple hours away in warm St. George, Southern Utah.
We took the opportunity for a family weekend away to the red rocks.
I made road trip activity bags for the kids again. It included new movies for the van’s DVD player, snacks and coloring books. They hardly made a whiny peep the whole time. I swear, those goodie bags are the best idea I have ever had.
Baby Jack is the best little road tripper!
He loved to look out the window, talk to us, make faces at his brothers in the back seat and eat his toys. Jackson was born in the winter so being in the car with him now that it is starting to get hot makes me keep a special eye on him. I was grateful for the minivan’s sunshades that pull out of the door, giving him some shade, but still allowing me to roll the window down and get him some fresh air.
St. George is so pretty! We made some great memories.
It’s important to me to support Mr. R in his football playing endeavors and it’s important to me that my kids see their parents doing things that we love to do. I want them to know that we are well-rounded people, involved in more than work, house-cleaning and homework helping.
For Mr. R, that means playing football. The boys love to go to his games, cheer on Dad, dance to the music during the time outs and play on the field with their dad after the game.
He is their hero.
