Toyota Sienna Road Trip

Posted: July 9th, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: Update | Tags: , , | No Comments »

So we added a minivan to the family for the first time. It was a difficult decision no matter how cool and full featured the 2011 Sienna is.

Our road trip this year will not be the length of last year, but we are looking forward to an extended break.

I’ll add photos and updates on our experience with the Sienna with particular attention to our fun on the road.

Parker Is Recovering Well… Thank Goodness

It has been one week since our accident in Park City on the Alpine Slide, and I am grateful to say that Parker is recovering very well (despite the small hit he took in the same spot by running into the car door - that was very painful for him.)

I will admit that this has been one of the longest weeks of my life, and rightfully so. The good news is that I spend more time trying to keep him settled down in place long enough to avoid re-injury. His wounds are healing progressively faster now than earlier in the week. I anxiously wake each morning, with a bit of a pit in my stomach, to see his overnight healing progress.

Today was the best day by far in terms of most significant overnight improvement. So, I take a bit of a sigh of relief from this painful incident, and we move forward with our Summer fun.

This weekend will include at a minimum, the following (there may be some good ideas in here for your families too):

  • Movie in the park
  • Trail running and mountain biking
  • Friends Breakfast at Ruth’s Diner in SLC
  • Mountain adventure exploration with the kids (no fast moving vehicles, just old fashioned walking)
  • Basketball in the driveway

I know, you are thinking “what an ordinary weekend”, but sometimes the more ordinary, the better.

There’s lots more ADRoadtrip adventure to come now that we are back on track, so be on the lookout for more updates and giveaways. Thanks to everyone that send their well wishes to Parker… it means a lot to him and to us.
