Finally you have your newly adopted baby or child and you’re thinking about summer vacationing. Just because you’re now a new parent is no reason to put off your trip to Zion Park near Springdale Utah. Adopting parents are learning that, while adding a new life changing child to the home mix does disrupt some things, the excitement of adventure and camping can be enjoyed with children of all ages. Many parents today enjoy the wonders at Zion Park with their children. To ensure you have a positive experience with your newly adopted child, you might want to consider the following three tips: Make your trip baby/child friendly, plan for the heat and be flexible.
On your first vacation to Zion Park, you may want to bag the idea of hiking the cliff trails and stay to the paved or “child” friendly trails where you can take your stroller. You can also enjoy the scenic bus ride and get off at various points to hike and visit the Zion Park Visitor Center and then get back on the bus. Give yourself plenty of chances to get in out of the sun and make sure you keep yourself and your baby or child hydrated.
Even though you love tent camping, new adoption parents might want to look into an RV rental or Zion Park lodging this first trip. RV’s, motels, hotels and other Zion Park lodging have air conditioning when you and your child get hot and tired. You can rest and sleep at night better in the cool and not worry that your child’s crying or fussing will bother others.
Flexibility is the key with a first time vacation with your newly adopted baby or child. Both you and your child will need constant energy stops in Zion Park with snacks and lots of water. You might have to cut your camping short and get a motel if your baby gets sick or you might have to plan for those times when your son or daughter gets fussy. Take these new challenges in stride and don’t try to overdo, just stay flexible.
