Hall of Fame Advice for a Seven Year Old

Our trip to Canton was filled with so many once in a lifetime opportunities, but there was one that topped them all.  We all had the ability to meet the 2014 Hall of Fame Class in person at an autograph signing.  Everyone who was there had various balls, helmets, or other memorabilia for the inductees to sign, but nobody there brought a video camera.  We were supposed to only take pictures of the inductees as they signed the items put in front of them, but that didn't stop my wife from getting exclusive advice for our aspiring young football star Carter.

It's not everyday that this kind of access so we made the most of it:

The odds are highly against Carter making the Hall of Fame, but at least he has a leg up on his competition.

This was made possible by our recent trip to Canton as part of #DaddysFordJourney sponsored by the Tri-State Ford Dealers.

The Ford Explorer... As Seen By a Kid

I have always wanted my older son to start making videos.  The technology now makes it so easy for anyone to create content and get it out there for the world to see.  A few weeks ago he made a movie about how boring a car trip can be and how "exciting" it was to be looking at trees from the back seat of the car.

When we went on our road trip to Canton as part of our #DaddysFordJourney thanks to the fine folks at The Tri-State Ford Dealers I thought it would be a great idea for him to showcase the Ford Explorer that we were driving.  Who knows?  Maybe this can be part of their next big advertising campaign?

It's interesting to see how a kid sees the world around him.
