Gather the Family with Arian Foster
Arian Foster, running back, Houston Texans
"I've never had a summer vacation – when you play football, you train all summer. But on weekends, my family gets together in the backyard. We blast my mom's music, like the Beach Boys, and my dad's stuff, like Parliament. The kids will be tearing around. My brother grills salmon and tops it with provolone. It's the best. We play card games – spades, Dirty Hearts. My stepfather has the title now. But I'm getting it back this year."
