Fueling Up With the McPick 2 Menu at McDonald’s

We’re enjoying McDonald’s® as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #McDPartners. We appreciate their support of Jersey Family Fun.





Welcome Back to the Playground!

While we didn’t have too much snow this winter it was COLD! We would pass our favorite playground every day and wish we could just spend some time there without freezing. The long winter months passed so slowly! As soon as the temperatures started to creep up we got to the swings, and the slide, and the monkey bars. When that first warm day hit we changed out of school clothes, stashed the backpacks and headed to the playground!




There’s a playground across the street at our school, but when your mom is a Jersey Family Fun writer there’s always somewhere to go. Once the weather warms up (and especially during daylight savings time), we are always on the hunt for a new park to review. It’s exciting to explore new neighborhoods, new playground equipment and new trails! We have seen most of the parks near us so it’s a bit of a drive to get to a new one. Do we skip the drive and the park because we will miss dinner at home? That’s no fun and on the first warm day, it’s fun we’re after. So we went to the park! We rode scooters, hung from the monkey bars and enjoyed the fresh air. All that worked up an appetite of course, and we were a half hour from home, at dinner time.


Not to worry about that! You’re never far from a McDonald’s, and with the McDonald’s McPick 2 menu there’s something for everyone at an affordable price. You can choose the kid friendly 10 piece Chicken McNuggets, the seasonal favorite Filet-O-Fish, or your hamburger favorites; the Big Mac or the Quarter Pounder with Cheese. Can you believe these are all just 2 for $5?




With 10 Chicken McNuggets in the McPick 2 Menu, my kids could share an order while I treated myself to the delicious one of a kind Big Mac! We added on some french fries and got it to go, so we could return to the reality of a school night and all it comes with (homework, showers, early bedtime). Not without a stop at the Playplace, of course! Soon enough it will be summer and we can have longer playground time and when we do, McDonald’s will be there waiting to serve us dinner (or breakfast or lunch!)
