Only seven days in a week and I wonder, how much time does everyone really give towards their family?
Besides baking together(I think you should know my whole family has a passion for baking. My 3 yr old sister even tries ‘reading’ the recipe and sometimes I let her crack the egg!), my family and I love going outdoors, places such as to mountains, lakes, fun picnics…you get the picture.
We usually plan for places like that during long weekends or breaks, but there are two things we do EVERY weekend.
1. Walking in Mile Square Park
Don’t think for a second that its boring. Not at all. With my sister racing me and my parents talking while brisk walking, I have a lot of fun. Sometimes we play Frisbee and I have progressively gotten better!
This a picture we took the last time we went walking and doesn’t it look absolutely beautiful? Its really nice to be able to go on a walk with your family and appreciate nature at the same time.
2. Panera Bread!!!
There is no better breakfast place (I guarantee you) than this. I love their wide variety of breakfast items such as bagels, cupcakes, cookies, scones, cakes, pastries, smoothies and trust me I haven’t even started the endless choices.
This is the tastiest cream cheese tub to pair off with your bagels. Try this Honey Walnut Cheese and you will get addicted. And if you want to package anything to take home or on the go, no problem. They have cute holiday bags and I suggest giving some of their bakery items to anyone as a present. No one will refuse cupcakes when its packaged into adorable boxes.
While my family and I do things with each other, I realized how similar Lucie’s family and mine is. In a Tale of Two Cities, Doctor Mannette, Charles, Lucie, and Little Lucie adore each others presence and love spending time with each other. If any of you finished the book and read the ending,I can sympathize with you if you felt happiness and sorrow at the same time. I have re-read the ending multiple times, and every time I do, it brings me on the verge of tears.
Anyways I want to finish my blog post asking YOU to ask yourself a question:
What does your family do together?
