Before you know it, the children will be seeking out more family time
I wish it was easier to get the whole family together for just a day..particularly the young adult members. However, let’s be honest: The day I get taken to my forever home in the sky, they’ll never forget those fun moments we were able to share. Therefore it’s my duty to not give up trying, and to show them how important it is to me! Now, what kind of things aren’t too awful to lure them all here?
Though occasionally a movie night might work (am I the only one who can stand going without these?), they don’t exactly promote us to connect with each other very well. Because, choosing poorly will discourage us from fully relaxing and engaging..rather than forgetting all about our devices and losing track of time from the fun. Let’s move past the electronics, even if only for a little while.

Ah yeah. You know it had to be done! Plus, I’m a Texas gal so I live realistically planning activities around warmth. The family swim center pool is big enough for all of you to chill in, and just have some good conversation.
My kids love them some food, y’all. In fact, my middle daughter is well-known for once saying “I love meat” – true story! So, I know the way to their hearts is to feed them well. You can’t get much more “well” than with a USDA Prime New York Strip, I’m just sayin’! The end-section of each loin on these have beautiful streaks and they’re just plain delicious. And don’t worry – it still has the right amount of fat to it, for you guys (or gals) who are into that sorta thing!

Again I’m coming back to food. And what’s easier than pizza? The baking stone traps and disperses heat evenly, helping to produce crispy crusts, without burning or scorching; it’s perfect for baking flatbread, pizzas and quesadillas.
