Hello
This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
I am sorry to hear that your visits are being made so complicated for you.
I suggest you can file a Modification to the Order and that you can file the Modification on your own. You can get those documents from the clerk of the court and file them with the court that issued the current order.
Of course, I do not see in your order where it states that you must take the child to activities. And so your time is your time. And you do not need to comply with any activities for the child, if you do not want to.
However, you need to decide what is in the child's best interest.
