Looking for your favorite family time tips!

What's your favorite way to spend time with your family? We'd love for you to share some of your tips with us!

Do you have...

- favorite things to do on the weekends?
- ways to keep the activities cheap?
- ways to keep your kids involved?
- tips for day trips?
- traveling with kids tips?
- playgroup tips?
- infant play tips?

You can post anything that has to do with family time.


You never know, your tip might win you a "Family Time Tip" award icon for your FC awards library!

The tips must be tried and true...not copied from a magazine, the Internet...etc.


Thanks for sharing!

Tami

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

Thanks for the bump, cat lover!

Favourite family time for us is doing anything/everything as a whole.

Day hikes
Weekend camping trips
Sunday drives
Beach (lakeside) picnics
Friday/Saturday night bonfires on a private/secluded beach
Berry picking in the height of the season
Mushroom picking

Whatever your imagination holds, it's for the taking, doing, and enjoying!

Keeping expenses down is important for a large family like ours, so I plan ahead to prepare homemade things, which I pack for everyone, and not complicating the idea of, getting out. Getting out, doesn't have to involve long car trips or needless expenses, nor does it have to revolve around doing complicated things with over-the-top additives.

Keep it simple, is my adage, and if you have little ones/babies... don't forget to pack extra diapers! Ask me how I know! LOL!

since my life has changed, my favorite is when I can see my granddaughters, during the summer and christmas are the main time I get to see them now. Once in awhile I'm bless to get to see them another time.
we enjoy playing games, chit chatting, catching up with one another on what's going on in our lives, and soon it will about dates when I get to see the oldest one again. LOL
I also enjoy when Gloria and I can get together with our other red hat sisters. Of course Gloria and I enjoy each oher company and getting away from the house.
