I love, love, love SATURDAYS! Mostly because it’s time for I, my Babes, and our kids to just be present and enjoy each other’s presence. We aren’t rushing through breakfast, hurriedly getting dressed, and dashing to the car.
On Saturdays, we take it easy.
On Saturdays, we usually do a variety of the same things.
We typically we make a big breakfast. Today’s menu included yummy vegan blueberry pancakes.
An active outdoor family outing is also included in our Sabbath regime.
Last weekend we did our first family run/bike ride/carriage ride. I am so proud of my Aiden Jo for riding his bike 3 miles! What a champ. Lil enjoyed lounging as she cruised along.
Most summer weekends include swimming at the pool.
All Saturdays include naps. Ahhhh naps. During Lil’s nap time today, Daddy and I fell asleep on the couch while Aiden played in his room quietly.
Our family is very musical. I happen to have the talent of music appreciation, while Babes and the kiddos jam. We enjoy worshipping together. Today’s band attire was simply bottoms…with lots of laundry on stage.
We read a LOT on Saturdays (and every day). This is my personal favorite way to unwind, and the love has passed along to both my children.
Good food is a must for our foodie family. This Saturday’s lunch was leftover lentil soup and a Vega/açai smoothie. Chipotle for dinner, to be followed by the best vegan cookies ever.
My favorite way to end a Saturday is on the couch chatting with my Babes.
How do you and your family like to spend your Saturdays, Mama?
