About Us

Welcome to Play Eat Grow!

Play Eat Grow is a resource meant to spark your imagination. We share some of the fun things we’re doing with our kids,  great new recipes we’re trying out with our families, and activities we’re doing ourselves and with our families to grow closer to God and to one another. Our hope is that you’d walk away from your computer equipped with some fun ways to play, eat, and grow with your family!

 

About the Contributors:

 

At my house we play a little game around the dinner table called “Three likes and a don’t”.  Everyone says three things they liked about their day and one thing they didn’t like.  So to let you know a little bit about me, here are three likes and a don’t from my life.

I like:

– watching my two boys, ages 7 and 9, learn and grow and play. They are such a blessing!
– reading, especially non-fiction, and being outdoors (our family enjoys camping and hiking) during my “free time” (otherwise knows as the time I could be folding laundry but am not)
– planning vacations and researching things to do.  I don’t really get to go on vacation that often, but you’d better believe that when I do, no one is bored!

I don’t like:

– weak coffee.  Because really, what’s the point?

I like:

-spending time with my darlin’ husband and crazy children- ages 9, 8, 6, and 3. They are all incredibly unique and there is never a dull moment in our house, as you can imagine.
-staying up late at night. I used to be a morning person, but kids have changed me in that way. I love the quiet of the house– perfect time to read, write book reviews, craft, bake, snuggle my hubby, and eat ice cream.
-playing games. Some of my favorites are Settlers of Catan, Bonanza, and Pandemic, Jake and I don’t play as often as we’d like these days, but are looking forward to family game nights where we get to play non-chance-based games :).

I don’t like:

– lots of noise. #ironic

 

I like:

– spending time with my growing family (I have a two year old son and seven week old son!)
– baking and eating desserts (I am known by my family and friends and some one who is almost always on dessert duty)
– to try any and all craft things (I am a dabbler and have tried my hand at sewing, knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, scrapbooking, toy making, and loads more. Please do not look in my craft closet…it’s a disaster of half finished projects. Eep!)

I don’t like:

– dealing with mold or bugs. That is strictly my hubby’s domain. When he hears me call for him, he usually knows it’s one of the two.
