The older I become (and the older my kids get), the busier our lives have become. I’m so thankful we held off on a lot of extracurricular activities when they were little, because, whoa, hello Jr. High and High School.
It’s especially crazy this time of year, with marching band at football games and music contests and when you throw in science fair projects and AP classes, it’s exhausting in a wonderful –I love watching my kids do what they love– kind of way.
I think that’s why I cherish Sundays so much. It’s our family day. We go to church. We take a nap. We eat a nice meal out. (Okay, so maybe I love it because I don’t have to cook. Don’t judge). We declared it a media free day years ago and the quiet reading and togetherness is my favorite.
As first world as it sounds, deciding where we are going to eat after church is always fun (and by fun, I mean, I usually say whoever is paying gets to choose).
Last Sunday, there wasn’t an argument or complaint since Red Robin sent me a gift card for our family to try out their Gourmet burgers and bottomless sides, which include bottomless broccoli, side salad, cole slaw, garlic herbed fries, and sweet potatoes fries. For a great meal at a great price, Red Robin offers the Red’s Tavern Double Burger starting at just $6.99, including bottomless fries. Two classic-sized fire-grilled patties topped with American cheese, Red’s Secret Tavern Sauce, tomato and lettuce.
It was our first time as a family to eat at Red Robin and it was such a delicious treat! I think what I loved most was there was something for everyone. My teen son has a bottomless stomach, so he was especially excited about refilling his fry basket over and over. My teen daughter has been trying a gluten free diet on for size and she was happy to find a hamburger bun that fit the bill. My hubby and I try to be low carb eaters, so we opted for the no-bun option on our gourmet Bleu Ribbon burgers topped with bleu cheese and crispy onion straws (yum!). And our youngest was pretty excited about Chicken Stickens (chicken on a stick). All you can drink freckled lemonades (pink lemonade with strawberries) were a huge hit too.
We ate and talked and caught up on each other’s lives. Good food and family just go together. And then we went home and took a nap.
