Kids Eat Free At Baja Fresh

Did you know kids eat free at Baja Fresh?  I was pleasantly surprised when I took the kids there on Sunday and there is a big sign that shows “Sundays — Kids Eat Free with an adult entree purchase & drink”.   The really cool thing is, I didn’t order the drink because we don’t drink the soda but the manager gave me a free kids meal anyway.

Kids meals are about $3.99 and that includes: chips, drink of choice, beans, rice and an entree!  It is a great value.   So, when you plan to eat out remember that Kids Eat Free On Sundays at Baja Fresh.


Also, join the Baja Fresh Club and get a free taco on sign up and a free burrito on your birthday!


Family Circle Comics

So what do kids want?

When I saw this Family Circle comic strip in my Sunday Newspaper several weeks ago, it hit home for me! I find my days super busy and getting lost in all the “things that need to be done” often forgetting that the “things” truly won’t matter in a year. Taking 15 minutes just to sit with the kids when they are playing, painting, reading a book or learning a new magic trick has a lasting imprint on their heart and mind for life — no that IS important, but I often need reminding!

As I look at this Want Kids Want Family Circle comic strip that now hangs on the wall next to the computer it is a gentle reminder what is lasting — time with the kids.

Hope this inspires you like it did me, now go find your kids! 🙂
