Family time has always been something that is very important to my wife and me. Our family like many families has a hectic schedule during the week, so we really don’t see each other much. Now that the kids are getting older, it’s even more important we take time to enjoy all the family moments that we can. So, each week either on Friday or Saturday night we all “unplug” and enjoy each others company. This allows us to catch up on everything while also allowing us to just have fun and relax! We started the “unplug” rule because the truth is everyone in the house is always connected to his or her phone, computer, or tablet. We could say something to the kids, and they had no idea what we were saying because they were so into what they were doing they never heard us! I admit I am also guilty. It got so bad that we knew something had to be done when we were having family movie night and everyone was on their phones instead of watching the movie! Right then I decided enough was enough! At first the kids didn’t like the thought of having to turn off the devices but they finally seen why it was important. Now they even tell me to turn off my devices before I tell them.
Last weekend we actually unplugged for the whole Mother’s Day weekend! I must say it was the most relaxing weekends I’ve had in a long time. My mother spent the night for the first time in our new house so we enjoyed her company. After dinner Friday night we decided to play Monopoly and Bingo, and in this house family night is not complete without JOLLY TIME Pop Corn! The best part is I recently learned Jolly Time is also encouraging families to unplug and enjoy family time with their Unplug Pop Connect campaign. This is the only brand that the whole family agrees on when it comes to popcorn! We love the fact that there are so many flavors to pick from so we never get bored with it. So, we got our drinks, Popcorn, and gathered around the big screen.
After trying all the JOLLY TIME Popcorn flavors, my daughters couldn’t get enough of the Blast-O-Butter and Xtra Butter flavors. My oldest daughter went as far as claiming it’s the best popcorn she’s ever had and that says a lot coming from her. Since I’m on my health kick, my favorites were the Healthy Pop and the 100 Calorie flavors. You can’t go wrong with either flavor because they all provide great taste.
So I challenge everyone reading this, please take some time with your family by unplugging all devices, grab some JOLLY TIME Popcorn and connect with each other. If this is something you already do with your family, what are some things you all like to do together? Leave your comments in the section below and let’s discuss this more.
