Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Welch's. I received product samples to facilitate my review, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Welch’s believes in spending more time with your family to create “kitchen table” moments, and has been helping families enjoy them for generations. A special moment can happen before you know it.

I do all that I can to capture those special moments with my family. I'm pretty sure I annoy my family with constantly snapping pictures of everything but I can't help it! Little ones are little for but so long & before you know it, they're grown! Which is why my husband & I have been doing all we can to cut down on other activities & spend as much time together as a family.
- Unplugging after a certain hour. Each & every one of us has to put down any & all electronics & just relax. Any messages, e-mails or games can wait until the next day. Weekends are usually completely unplugged other than cell phones but no blogging for Mommy, that's for sure – I just schedule them ahead of time!
- We can't eat breakfast or lunch together during the weekdays because of work & school but dinner is a must! We sit & eat together & talk about our day.
- Right before bedtime, we make sure to play a board game together – sometimes we play UNO but lately it's been Adrian's favorite game of the Minion version of Monopoly. Either way, we like to unwind with a friendly game before bed.
- Another thing we've been doing is going outside more – not just a walk around the neighborhood but at the park & finding trails we can walk on. It's been especially nice with the perfect fall weather we've been having.
Here are two of my favorite "Share What's Good" pictures of my son & husband. We spent a relaxing morning on top of Stone Mountain – I can't even explain how good it felt to just sit & feel the sun on our backs but the wind slightly blowing as we looked down the mountain. To me, a family moment is a moment that I want to remember forever with nobody else but my family (no offense to my friends, lol) & at that moment on top of the mountain, I wouldn't have had it any other way.
What about you guys? What do you do to connect or spend more quality time with your family?
