When I was growing up, my siblings and I looked forward to family night or family time. It always involved doing something together whether at home or out. I remember always having fun together growing up and I’m so thankful to grow up in a close knit family. I want that for my kids too so we implemented family night years ago.
A&W Root Beer values family too. They are asking you to take the pledge to go technology-free for 1 hour every Friday night to spend time with your family. What better way is there than over a delicious root beer float?!

Make Time for Family Pledge
A&W Root Beer is giving families a challenge this year and asking you to take the pledge to make time for your family. Every Friday night, they are asking you to pledge to go technology free for 1 hour. That may seem like nothing to your family or it make sound impossible. We are all so technology driven and have screens begging for all of our attention 24/7 with apps, notifications, and other ‘important stuff. What is most important is not allowing technology to take priority over family. Setting aside just 1 hour a week can really do wonders for any family.
For me, when we say it is time to put phones, tablets, computers, and TV away, we get some mumbling. However, it is quickly followed up with the question of what we are going to do. We love spending time outdoors, especially in the summer. You can find us often at local parks as a family. One of our favorite year-round family night activities is game night. If you are looking for ideas, check out all our family night posts!
Once we settle on an activity, the second most important part is a great snack! If you have a difficult time getting your family to agree to family time together, mention food and they will all be on board, especially if it is a root beer float!
There is something timeless and all-American about a root beer float that brings pure joy to people. I recall having root beer floats as a kid and so does my husband. It’s kinda odd how we all have the same kind of memory of this special treat. What makes it best is when you use A&W Root Beer, another timeless treat.
