Valentine's Day Activities for the Family

What are your thoughts on Valentine’s Day?  While I do love going on dates with my husband, I actually don’t look at Valentine’s Day as a day for him and I. I don’t mean to be a big bummer, but I tend to view this holiday as a bit of a commercialized day. I like to date my husband throughout the year and I tell him I love him multiple times each and every day. That’s why I choose to make Valentine’s Day a day for the family. We love spending time together and while, like my husband, I tell them every day that I love them, but I do like the idea of an entire day that celebrates our family’s love for one another. 

While I do love spending time with the whole family on Valentine’s Day, I do not like taking the family out to dinner on February 14th. Truth be told, I don’t really even like going out to eat with my husband on that day: restaurants are far too busy on Valentine’s Day to make a dinner out with kids much fun at all. Your wait will likely be incredibly long.

Create the Perfect Brunch with our Superstone® Deep Dish Pizza/Pie Baker

I just love Spring and I am so ready for it to hit. I just love so many things about this particular season. The weather is getting warmer, everyone is just a little more cheerful and once those flowers start blooming it’s just about perfect to start getting to those fun spring activities. What is your favorite thing to do in the spring? I personally have several favorites including getting outside, walking and enjoying the beautiful spring colors. I also love seeing all of the kids outside playing again after being stuck inside for a few months. There are just so many great things about spring to enjoy, not the least of which is the fact that friends and family get together more often again. Yes, many of us spend a lot of time over the holidays with our families, but once springtime hits, it’s a different setting and mindset. One of my favorite spring get togethers to have is brunch and boy oh boy do we have the perfect selection of items that will help a brunch come together perfect…

I always give my kids Valentine’s Day gifts. In our family, we really like to go with DIY gifts. I like to give my kids gifts that get their brains moving and working creatively. Another thing I focus on often with my kids is making sure that I…
