I’m sharing our family day-trip to Eckert’s as part of a sponsored campaign. All opinions are 100% my own, as we have always enjoyed trips to Eckert’s. 

Family time is essential. I fill each weekend with fun activities, creating quality time with the kids. Having three young boys, I am often challenged to find new & exciting events that will hold their attention easily. However, no matter what we do, what’s important is spending time together and making memories.

Weekend breakfast is a favorite meal in our house. It’s a time we can pause all the rushing around to get out the door. It’s a time that my husband is home to enjoy breakfast with the kids. These breakfast meals don’t always have to be an over-the-top, dirty-all-the-dishes type breakfast meals. We like to pop open a can of Pillsbury™ Grands! Cinnamon Rolls, laugh and enjoy family time, making the morning extra special.

Weekends mean a few different things to me. It definitely doesn’t mean no work. Since I work from home, I don’t get take the weekend off. However, it is two days that everyone in the family is home together. No school for my oldest and no work for my husband. That means movie nights, sleeping in, and special weekend breakfast.

We made picnic kabobs and had a fun day under the sun with Banana Boat® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #BestSummerEver

Ever since having kids, I go into each summer saying the same thing: This is going to be the best summer ever! And each summer I mean it. I want to have a great time with my family and create the most amazing memories. Each year I have to come up with new things to do and new places to visit.

I love doing those ‘girly’ things. You know, laying out by the pool, going shopping, getting my hair and nails done, then going shopping some more. That’s how my days were scheduled almost every single day. Then I became a mom. A boy mom to three adventurous daredevils.

We were provided with a two-night stay at Castle Rock Resort & Waterpark in Branson, MO. All opinions are my own. 

Years and years ago, my husband and I loved going on road trips and traveling. Three kids later, those things seemed nearly impossible and honestly, quite intimidating. How could we sanely manage three kids under the age of 4 in unknown territory? How would we survive? However, this year I knew the impossible had to be conquered.

Theme night (or days) are always a hit in my house. We like to have movie nights, themed dinner parties, game nights, etc. For me, it’s more of an easy excuse to have some family time. No matter what we are gathering together for, food and family are always the common factors.
