Family Fun Day - February

Our lives are busy. It seems like we are constantly being torn in different directions and even when we are all together, we are busy working, cleaning, catching up on homework, doing laundry, making house repairs...there is never time to just "be".

Hence why "Family Fun Day" was born. We try to have a day, once a month, where we get out of the house, away from our other responsibilities and just be together. We try to go to places that we have bought yearly memberships to, because lets be's not cheap taking out a family as large as ours!

Yesterday we decided to use the remaining punches on our family punch pass to Kangaroo Zoo, go to dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory and then come home to watch a movie and have root beer floats. The kids always have a blast at Kangaroo Zoo and as a bonus, they burn off a lot of energy and are tired the rest of the day! ;)

Peanut was scared at first, but soon she was running around crazy, like the rest of them!

Silly kids! I love hearing them giggle!

On top of spaghetti...all covered with cheese...that's one big friggin' meatball...

I hope the kids enjoyed themselves, as much as I did. I really look forward to these days out of the house with them, away from everything. They are growing up so fast...I feel like if I blink, I will miss it! These memories we make, as a family, are so important. <3

They are already talking about our next planned day out, to go tubing at Soldier's Hollow. If you've never been, it is a must! Check out GroupOn for their daily deal and get half off admission!
