; Daddy Mojo-A Dad Blog on parenting, life and poop culture

Every morning when the kids get downstairs it’s the same ritual.  Our youngest sits to my left and his older brother sits directly across from him.  He’ll talk about how he had “a good sleep” and ask about what we’re doing tomorrow-at which point I’ll remind him that we have lots of fun stuff to do today. While all of this is happening, Abby, our 14 year-old flat coat retriever has already set up camp under our youngest’s chair.  He’s just the right height to massage her with his bare feet and if anyone at the table is going to drop something edible it’s going to be him.  It was also at this point that I realized that this is one of those moments, specifically those periods of time.

Aerial America: Southwest Collection-armchair travel & more

July 29, 2014

How does a dessert state get their water? The channel that cuts through the state is given good time for explanation also.
What surprised me was how entertaining all of this education was. The visuals are really pretty and are all chamber of commerce type images. When I was watching Aerial America I wanted them to do a program on this state or that region, just to be an armchair tourist.

Our summer’s day out with Snyder’s Of Hanover #PretzelGuys

July 28, 2014

The next trip is to the park where the kids can run, climb and laugh some energy out. Our smaller child is much more active at this age than his older brother. Everyone in the house exercises to some degree and we’ve recently undergone a sodium secession with our diet. We now look at how much salt is in food; don’t add salt on food when it’s not needed and stopped taking our daily dip in the Dead Sea.

The intersection of car & art: Dream Cars at the High Museum of Art

July 25, 2014

Dream Cars is at the High Museum until September 7 and has vehicles that should not exist. They look too weird, like something from a Terry Gilliam movie that was cut due to budget concerns. You’ll see a couple cars that look like James Bond vehicles from the 60’s or bubble cars from a sci-fi movie. They’re beautiful, odd and in perfect condition.

Going to the World of Coca-Cola? Get the Explorer app

July 24, 2014

The Explorer app has the map of course. It’ll show you where all of the exhibits are and provide a detailed look inside the exhibits once you’re in them. This is cool. It prompts you at certain spots to take photos, dig deeper for more information and makes the entire World of Coca-Cola more entertaining.
Previously we were just walked through and enjoyed it, but didn’t do anything. The Explorer app encouraged us to stop, relax more and enjoy the facility more.

The Sea Pines Beach Club-a welcome addition to Hilton Head Island

July 23, 2014

The Sea Pines Beach Club has always been there to some degree, but the renovations that they’ve done put that area in an entirely different field for many reasons.
They leveled the old beach club. Gone are the volleyball pits and stereotypical outdoor showers. It’s been replaced with a sprawling facility with three restaurants, live entertainment 6 nights a week, and a massive deck to watch the ocean.
