National Friendship Day: Connect Better
“Why is every day a national something day?” Evan asked this morning as I sniffed gorgeous lilies and roses. I had just told him and Arianna that it was National Friendship Day and that they needed to connect better with the people that have been put in their lives as friends. “Like yesterday was National Twin Day, when’s it ever National High Five Day, or something cool?”
Disclaimer: Experience Columbus sent my family and four other Pittsburgh Mom Blogger families on a weekend getaway to check out their city. We were compensated in the way of attraction passes and gift cards; however, this does not impact the views expressed in my recap posts (including this one). All opinions are my own (or my kids’ / husband’s).
“Look, Mama! I picked you a whole basket of flowers,” she said, twirling a basket of beautiful roses. I was fighting tears back. Reaching for the basket, I thanked her. “I picked you flowers, Mama, but you can only take one.” Oh…well…thanks, Arianna.
Vacationing for our family might not be exactly what Greg expects. You see, I thrive on being busy, busy, busy.
When we went on vacation, we “slept in” until 9:30 or so. Swimming, resort activities, or visiting the park followed. Some days, there was shopping or seeing friends. We kept a fairly busy schedule, but nothing crazy. I think all days but one the kids got good naps, so we stayed on a good schedule.
