Entertainment Buzz: What do you do to for your own entertainment for sanity as a mom?

Betty Hayes: I love to read! Reading a good book is my escape.

EB: What does your family do for entertainment?

BH: We love to have family movie night! As the kids get older, I value family movie night more than ever. Our family loves to watch movies together and family movie night is a ritual at our house.

EB: Can you share some inexpensive family entertainment suggestions
with us?

BH: (Laughing) The library. We go to the library for our books and our movies. We get a lot of movies from the library. In addition to the library, we like to play board games. Finally, my kids love to play outside...and that's free!

EB: What's the best way to organize a large family outing, like to a bowling

BH: I am a list maker. When we go anywhere with the whole family, I make checklists. We always forget something, no matter how much I plan but the key is not to forget the important things!

I am excited to watch Table for 12, how about you? Are you interested in knowing more about the Hayes family? What do you think?
