Enjoying McDonald's

Friday, July 25, 2014




We maintain a very active schedule. School, baseball practice, swim lessons and other activities manage to fill our calendar months in advance – yet, we always find time to enjoy each other.

One thing that we enjoy most – is a trip to McDonald’s! Specifically, a McDonald’s with a play area. I enjoy getting to sit with a cup of McCafe coffee while the kids run, jump and play. I love watching them climb through the play area and enjoy themselves while playing with the other children. They enjoy the possibility of getting a Happy Meal and maybe even a Fruit n Yogurt parfait after the meal. Savannah loves and looks forward to the apples in her Mighty Kids Meal!

We’ve enjoyed visiting the local McDonald’s since the kids were just learning to walk and wobble around. I’m often remembering back to prior visits over the years – and relish the fun memories we’ve made. I’m now able to look back and laugh at Joey refusing to come out of the playland when he was two years old. It had been years since I climbed through a playland myself – but I was able to do it and retrieve Joey. He wasn’t too happy with me.

I often wonder if they look forward to the slides and different activities as much as I did when I was younger. The playlands were much different when I was young – but I’m sure the playlands of today are just as magical to the kids as they were to me way back then. Soon, Savannah and Joe will be much too big for the playland. That will be a hard day for mom! I’m already dreading it. However, we have a few more years before they’ve outgrown it. Until that day, we’ll continue to visit and make great memories!
