Final Days of Spring Break

3.31.19

We loaded up the car and ventured one hundred miles west to visit my parent’s home yesterday.  Our car ride was full of snacks, games and shenanigans to distract our daughter from asking, “Are we there yet?’ over 100 times during our 105 minutes in the car.

Our evening was full of home cooked favorites from my mom’s kitchen, NCAA games, and homemade apple crumb pie.  I stayed up a little later than I planned as we were enjoying each others company, sharing our stories and laughter together.  

There’s something special about waking up at ‘home’ too, as often my mom is busy in the kitchen whipping up our next gourmet meal and pouring my coffee for me.  She truly enjoys hosting and having a houseful. I enjoy her still spoiling me a bit.  I love her ability to make a lot of different food for a large group of people. Our plates were full of waffles, hash browns, bacon and sausage this morning.  

Our day was full of playing tea party, dressing my childhood dolls, playing games and riding our bikes down the block.  The hardest part is that, I kept telling myself I need to sit down and write as I felt this challenge weighing heavy on my shoulders on this final day of March writing challenge and our Spring Break.  Our focus was on being present and spending time together.  Spending time with our family was a wonderful way to wrap up the final days of our Spring Break.

  1. Sounds like a perfect end to your spring break! Nothing beats family time! There are times I am jealous when I read of others’ family time, but the majority of the time I am so happy to know that others share the same bond with their family as I do. I am so happy for you, my friend, and that you had an amazing family day!
