It was a long holiday here in our place. Aside from the term breaks that the kids had from school, there were days declared as non-working. Our family spent so much time together.

Previously, we planned how to spend the days off, but eventually things fell into place and happened not as planned.

My 3 girls spent so much time biking. Each of them has a bike and my husband took time tuning up each and coaching them how to bike properly. It was a good physical activity for all of them. Less time to watch TV and they did not use the computer for games; only one time. TV watching was seldom too because they were busy biking around the village and competing who biked the fastest.

The other day we tried a new recipe and they were happy to participate in doing it. Noisy, rowdy and full of energy but excited, too.

Yesterday, we brought them to the supermarket to buy our two weeks supply of food. They were allowed to buy two things (each of them) and were happy enough to try "unusual" treats such as: yogurt with a new flavoring, new flavored oatmeal, etc. I was amazed how healthy their range of choices are.

Then we decided to visit the Grammies, who live next town. They were excited to converse with them and spend a night in their place. Hubby and I got to have some "alone time".

Hubby and I are picking them up today. Tomorrow is a new school day and they need to prepare their personal things, uniforms, shoes, etc.

It was a quality, well-spent time as a family. After all, simple life means happiness for beings like us...and precious moments spent together do not have to be costly.

Well, wonderful family memories are priceless in the first place...Right?

    It was so nice that you got to have a nice holiday with your family... and especially that you and your hubby could have some alone time...
    it is so important to have alone time with each other so you can be refreshed and ready to handle all the activity that goes with raising children!!

    Precious moments---are the best and usually always free:)

    I do the same thing with my children, at the store--they can each pick out a cereal and a snack--or if they don't want cereal, it can be anything--lots of times it is Avocados..LOL

    Have a great evening!
