A little while ago John and I began talking about having some traditions and memory making times with our families. Something that they will have to look back upon and remember and share with their kids one day.
John came up with a brilliant idea! He decided to host "Dinner Around the World" each Thursday night.
John picks a country, makes a menu, cooks the dinner, and even cleans it up! While we eat our dinner, we listen to music native to that country and I read fun and interesting facts about the country to the kids. It is a blast! I look forward to Thursdays just as much as the kids do!
I will do a post each week for these so that the kids (and I) have something to look back upon and remember!
