Bring on the Tailgate | Tuesdays with Jacob

Bring on the Tailgate

August 15, 2017

I know two guys who are VERY excited that it's finally time to start breaking out the football jerseys again. Jacob is finally at the age where he is old enough to start to "get it." (perhaps more so than mommy, which is somewhat embarrassing) Now that he's starting to understand football we figure maybe we can take him along to some games or tailgates this year. 

In anticipation of that, we've started stocking away some necessities. actually has an entire tailgating section! It's really easy to find everything since it's all together in one spot. We ordered two Coleman quad chairs and a 50 quart cooler, but I suspect we'll grab a few more things before football officially starts. All of our items were available for pickup at our local Walmart, the day after we ordered them. 

We'll try to keep things as simple as possible, bringing or ordering easy foods that we know Jacob likes, and keeping plenty of water for him in the cooler since it's notoriously hot well into fall in Florida. The cooler is a perfect size and easy to transport with it's wheels and handle. It's also super sturdy and makes a great seat for a toddler or small child. 

The chairs are super roomy and comfortable and they'll also be great for sitting on the sidelines at Jacob's soccer games this fall. There's plenty of space to comfortably hold a kid in your lap, and they even have a built in cooler on the armrest to keep your drinks cold! 

If you have football traditions with your kids or other tailgate essentials that we need to add to our list, please let me know! I'd love to hear from you!
