Unplug and connect – enjoying life beyond the screen

This post brought to you by JOLLY TIME Pop Corn. The content and opinions expressed below are that of The Mommy Bunch.

The thing I love about spring and summer is that it is so much easier for us to unplug and enjoy quality outdoor time. While we can go outside in the winter, the cold climate we live in really makes it a little more difficult to do so consistently, so making the most of the warm weather when we have it is key!

Lately, every time I turn around the kids have a tablet in their hands or are trying to sneak in their favorite show on TV. Well, enough of that! We need to use this time to enjoy what nature has to offer, as well as spend a little family time.

If it is a rainy day we love to pop a bowl of popcorn and play board games. Chutes and Ladders can get pretty intense around here! jollytime board game When it is nice out, we of course need to head outside! Playing in the sandbox is a huge favorite, or even just taking a walk. Popcorn is an easy snack to take outside with us as it is quick to make and fun to eat anywhere. Outdoor play

Who am I? Is it weird that the first thing that comes to my mind is Happy? No, I don’t believe I am one of the Seven Dwarfs, although happy is better than being Sneezy! After having my two children Kaphen (5), and Kyler (3), I lost myself somewhere between the diapers, parenting, and up all-nighters. Now that they are a little older, I have sorted out how to be a mom, a wife and ME! So who is “me”? .....
