August is Family Fun Month!
Sometimes we just don’t have time to plan a fun day, and it is dang hard to get everyone to agree upon a time to get together.
One child has soccer, one has music, and that is just one side of the family. The other side has a friend’s birthday party, swimming lessons, or some other function. Before you know it, another year has gone by and the whole group didn’t get together for anything.
Maybe that is why they invented Family Fun Day, so that families could just throw on the brake and announce, “Enough already! We are going to go to dinner together if it kills me!”
This is an old picture and we haven’t done anything since this, all as one unit. It was just dinner, some crazy hats, and a person to take your picture. It was a small slice of time that we laughed, hugged, and enjoyed each other’s company.
How do large families get together? I would love to hear other ideas!
