3rd Birthday Monster Truck Road Trip: Canyon Mouth Park

3 years.

Dear Jack,

Well, this is it… the final letter about your monster truck road trip in the Toyota Tundra to celebrate your 3rd birthday. I know at 3 years old, it’s hard to remember some of the details, so I wanted to make sure I did a good job of scrapbooking it for you.

The final stop of our tour was Canyon Mouth Park, not to be confused with Canyon Land Park, which my most recent letter was about.

It’s not the most glorious park I’ve ever been to, but it is the quietest and most unknown park I’ve ever been to. After driving the 13 mile trek along the side of the canyon, we had finally made it to the bottom, where Little River comes to a calm point, which is Canyon Mouth Park.

But while the place was very sirene and undiscovered… you weren’t! It was that time of the afternoon where you were needing a nap, and in the company of Nonna and Papa (my parents), you started getting pretty silly- as these pictures clearly show.

Nonna introduced you to the tickling song, “This Little Piggie,” along the way, so you were definitely ready to have some fun.

So we let you do what any 3 year-old little boy would want to do in the same situation: You threw rocks into the water until we finally had to go.

It was the perfect way to end our monster truck road trip.

We all had so much fun with my birthday gift to you (of this monster truck road trip) that I have a feeling this is the beginning of a new tradtion.

Granted, I may not be able to score something as cool as a Toyota Tundra every year, but I feel the best birthday gift I can give you each year is a road trip.

Not anything fancy or exotic; quite the opposite. Something special, personal, low-key, and ideally… free. To me, that’s priceless.

Happy Birthday Son!

 

Love,

Daddy
