Baby Z and Windy Road Trip Games

On a recent road trip through California, we had exhausted our resources to keep Zaynab entertained. Her sisters read books or worked on sewing projects. However, Baby Z just wriggled in her seat much of the time, completely uninterested in the toys I brought along to entertain her.

She napped a few hours and snacked every now and then. We also sang a few songs with her. At one point, someone opened their window and a huge gust of wind blew into the back seat. Zaynab giggled with delight. Hearing that precious little laugh and seeing that sweet smile was all we needed to turn it into a game. Soon we opened all the windows in the car. The car filled with wind and laughter!

    Zaynab’s soft, delicate hair was no match to the gusts of wind that twirled and swirled her hair around.

    With all the windows rolled back up, Baby Z waits with anticipation for the next burst of wind. I think it’s time Z gets her bangs trimmed!

    Between the gusty wind and her giggles, it was hard to keep her eyes open.
