Day 1,340 – Thankful for COVID-19 Family Traditions, Take Out Meals

Gavin has been cracking me up throughout the COVID-19 challenge. He reminds often that he’s going to save the face mask his Grandma Mary made for him to show his grandkids one day so they can understand what he lived through. Cracks me up every time I hear him say it!

In order to keep some semblance of normalcy we’ve added a relatively new family tradition. I guess we’ve actually added a small handful of them now that I think about it. Family walks after work. Some sort of outdoor physical endurance activity each Saturday. Some type of pastry for one breakfast of the weekend. Bringing the girls to “home church” each week.

Tonight we stained the deck after work. As soon as we wrapped up Becky and I drove downtown. This weekend is Gavin’s turn to choose which of our favorite local restaurants we’re getting take out from. His choice was definitely a family favorite, Buzzard Billy’s. It was delicious!!!

Sure, we’re staying socially distant. But that doesn’t mean we can’t create ways to have some normal life experiences with an added twist. Interestingly enough, it’s turned into an awesome new family tradition. Heck, we might even keep this one going long after everything is back to normal!

Huge bonus kudos to Lovechild, David Reay’s, Qdoba, Buffalo Wild Wings, Big Al’s and Buzzard Billy’s for continuing to make delicious food. It’s not the same, but it’s still the same. Thanks for finding a way to stay open and safe!
