Last week, I traveled to Spain with my husband and kids to visit my 93 year old grandfather. To say that he is a big part of my everything is an understatement. You can’t imagine the sacrifices he has made in his life to help raise me and shape the person I am today.

While in Spain, I focused on making memories with my kids. We picked olives from my grandfather’s olive tree and learned to prepare them so they can be eaten.

I was also able to see a lot of my family. One of the things my cousin Carlos requested I make for him for breakfast was his favorite scone.  Carlos lived with us for two years back in 2008-2010 to learn English as a high school junior and senior. To date, he remembers my Sunday scones and tries to get my aunt to make them.

The trip was great for my kids as well. Even though they had to do 7 days worth of school work, they had a blast with their cousins. The park, of course, is universal for all things fun.

Upon returning from our “play time” I made a bunch of recipes from my cookbook and other family favorites.
