It turns out that you really don’t have to have a lot planned to create a day of fun with grandparents. Don’t get me wrong…I LOVE planning fun activities. However, it is also fun to do the simple things that will create special memories for ALL ages. This weekend turned out to be just that! I packed my bag and gathered up all of my favorite skincare products (Limelife by Alcone), and we headed to my mother’s house with Lauren and the grandkids. The end product was a fun sleepover and spa day with the grandkids…and it was absolutely perfect!
Lauren, the grandkids and I piled in the car and headed down for a day of fun with Great Grandma! Both Lauren and I always tend to plan for every hour of the day (well, more Lauren than me these days), but we decided this would just be a day of relaxation, conversation and whatever decided to come our way…you know….just enjoy the old time fun of enjoying the simple life!
The Simple Life ~
The day brought lots of simple fun:
Fort Building With Boxes
These are the days that I don’t think the average person gets enough of….at least I know our family doesn’t. Let me tell you…it is worth it to make it happen…and not just for the adults! The littles enjoyed this day as much as we did!
As we were sitting out on Grandma’s cozy porch in the early hours of the day, I decided why not have a little “spa day.” The coffee cup was forgotten for awhile as I pulled out my favorite skin care products. Funny looks were turned my way at first…a spa day outside? Why not?
Reconnecting With Old Friends ~
Let me back up a bit to talk about friends we meet throughout life. Friendships are a funny thing…you have lifelong friends from childhood and then the many you meet along the way. For me, friends were made through sports, college, work, kid’s classes, volunteering, kid’s after school activities and neighborhood. So many wonderful friends have been made through the years.
So why am I talking about this random subject? I have reconnected with many friends over the years…friends from those earlier days. Lori is one of those friends. We met in college and reconnected through social media (one of the things I love most about social media!) She is this beautiful soul inside and out. The outer beauty is enhanced even more by the skin care products she shares with others…Limelife by Alcone. (No, I am not a rep…she is….I just love the products!)
Spa Day ~
We started with some warm washrags draped over our faces. I believe the smiles on both faces say everything…they were loving it from the very start! (notice the hand holding too….be still my heart!)
Next was deep cleaning with Glowing Green Toner Pads. (These feel wonderful). Keep in mind that I am obviously not a professional, so we may have done things out of order. I sometimes have to reach out to Lori to remind me what is used when. 🤣
We continued on with Eye Arise (guys…seriously this stuff is AMAZING!), skin polish (also AMAZING), Sotoks and Green Smoothie. We didn’t necessarily do it in the order listed and not everyone used every product. The general idea was to just make them feel good and have fun! I used Limelife because I love it, but you can obviously do your own spa day with whatever your favorite products are.
The end result was a lot of laughter and relaxation. The girls mostly enjoyed this part of the visit, but the boys jumped in on some of the fun as well. They had box forts to turn to when not interested! Heck, we even had some of Grandma Judy’s favorite friends peek in on the fun!
Pssst…I think Lori has some products for those under eye bags Miss Raccoon!
We finished off the weekend with loads of yummy food, movies, playing with dolls and super heroes and golf cart rides! We packed A LOT of fun in one night/day! My suggestion…mix it up….simple fun and planned fun…enjoy a little of both! (For those of you who want more “planned” ideas…check out the rest of the suggestions below!)
