Do you ever want to rewind time? Go back and appreciate what you because maybe you didn’t appreciate it all that much as it was happening? I often find this true for things that happened during my childhood. First of all, being taken care. Hello, not a care in the world other than what was for breakfast and what you were going to do that day! So simple. Plus, instead of me making these cereal bars for myself my Mom would do it! SCORE!
How about nap time? My kids FIGHT this with every fiber of their being. I’m sure I did the same, but now I would give for a nap. Wouldn’t that be awesome? Someone telling you that you needed to go nap for a while in the afternoon. Sounds like pure bliss to me!
Cereal Bar Recipe
As the Summer Olympics role around a memory of mine from childhood surfaces. At my house we are huge fan of the Olympics. I remember waiting and waiting for them to come. When they finally got here we would all pile in the downstairs family room and watch as much as we could. Of course, that was before fancy things like DVRs and stuff so we had to be glued to the TV at every moment!
I remember being completely mesmerized by the synchronized swimmers and dreaming of having that talent. I’m still dreaming of having that talent! I could watch them for hours and hours. I can’t figure out how they are that talented. Truly a gift!
Did anyone else spend hours of their childhood watching the Olympics every time they rolled around dreaming of diving, running track, swimming or maybe something else? What is life without dreams? Pretty boring!
Cheering Team USA on during the Olympics is always an exciting experience! Did you know that 77% of Americans say watching Team USA inspired them to pursue their own dreams? Plus, over 84% of you consider Team USA athletes are real life heroes, which I totally agree with! Not only that, but 83% if Americans say watching Team USA inspires them to be more active!
So while you are relaxing on your couch, dreaming of what activity you’d participate in if you were in the Olympics whip up a batch of this cereal bar recipe to enjoy with the family!
