Family Fun Day & A New Magazine

{The Fam @ DisneyWorld in February!}

This week is my kiddos' Spring Break. So today Hubby took the day off of work so that we could have what we call

"Family Fun Day"!

On a Family Fun Day, we try to plan an outing or activity that everyone will enjoy! Sometimes we clue the kids in as to what we'll be doing, while other times (like today!) our fun time is a complete surprise!!

(We'll be going to the Zoo & having a picnic....Shhhh!)

We try to choose things to do that are generally pretty inexpensive, but give us plenty of time to laugh, play & have fun together.

Do you ever have a Family Fun Day with your family?
What sort of things do you like to do together?

{I'm keeping this post short & sweet today, so that I can focus on my family!}

In other news, look what is going to be coming to us this fall from

Glad you were able to have a fun day together. We still do that and our kids are grown! It's important no matter what age the kids are.

Hope you had a great day! I'd still be excited if my parents did that for me now (age 19 lol)!

When I was growing up, my grandma babysat us during the summer and she would do Friday Fun Day. If we helped her clean her house on Thursday, we would have a Friday Fun Day. She would take us fishing, or to the park or the movies, whatever. She was a really smart lady.

Hope you all had a fun day.
