My girls are much older now but my favorite thing to do with them is to watch romantic comedy movies.

My son is older now so when he comes home from school I like taking him out to eat - just the two of us spending time together and then he off to be with his friends!!

My sons are all grown up. So, my favorite family time is dinner when they can both be there and we can sit around and catch up. I miss that "every night dinnertime" that we had when they were little so much. Enjoy it while you can!

I love to grab a good family movie, make some munchies, and all hang out to watch a great movie and just talk! :)

My son will be 5 in a couple of months. Right now I really enjoy snuggling and reading to him. Probably because I know it won't last too much longer!

my favourite thing to do with my family is to go for walks... my son is just over 1 year old, so just hanging out with him and my husband is great...

Super cute pictures! My new favorite thing with the family lately is going to a local lake with geese feed and feeding the geese there. The kids LOVE it! They had their babies with them last week and my daughter was scooting them along with her hand. The rangers come out to talk and it is just relaxing and fun. Always good pics too!

Debbie said...

Our fav BY FAR is go to the beach. We hardly EVER get to go...but last yr we went to the Outer Banks with the girls (then 3 & 1) and they LOVED IT! My 4 yr old always asks when we can go back..which we will most definitely do this year! Thanks for sharing your pics! They are super cute!

I don't have any kids yet... so it is just me and my hubby. So this may change once we start having kids... but our favorite thing to do is go to the beach! We love going... having picnics, swimming, laying in the sun and taking naps :-) Soooooo much fun!

Nancy said...

I love to read to my kiddos and go on long car trips - really!

My boys are grown and gone now :( So my favorite thing is when we can all be together and just enjoy one another-which is difficult since one son is in the military. But those times, however far and few, are precious!

Jenn G said...

I LOVE to go hiking with my boys. It feels so good to be out in nature and spend quality time with them. Of course, if I lived near the beach, that would be my favorite, because it doesn't get any better than that!!!

Alyssa said...

Right now I love the quiet time after my baby boy goes to sleep that my husband and I spend together - no cell phones, no tv, just us.

Stephanie T. said...

I love to spend time with my family just hanging out in the great outdoors, taking walks, having picnics, etc. It's always great fun and it's inexpensive.

Amy Johnson said...

Even though I am married and have two older kids (college and high school) I have never had a loving extended family and really miss that. You are very blessed to have such a family. Anyhow, my favorite thing to do with my nuclear family is to go to the local Budget Theatre and watch a great movie and share a big bucket of popcorn.

Pat said...

It would be spending time with my family. We have a cottage on a lake and it's a relaxing family getaway from the stress of everyday life. Thanks for sharing!

I love to take my 2 yr old to the zoo! It's his favorite too!

Melissas said...

I love taking DS to the park where I can walk and he can ride his bike. There's also a great playground on site where we stop for a break! Thanks for sharing :)

kat said...

My son & I enjoy riding our bikes together [he's 38 years old] and there's so many things that the grandkids & I do together. I try to get them off the video games [PS2, Wii, Guitar Hero, etc] so we all enjoy going to the park. If I have just the 2 oldest girls [teen-agers], we go into my craft room and make cards!!!

Marisa said...

Cute picture of some gorgeous kids. They grow up sooooo fast, I wish I could freeze frame them sometimes!! A favorite thing to do with the family is play a game. Right now Sorry is the big game in our house and it can get pretty cut-throat! We also play Trouble and Uno and they are equally as cut-throat! Nothing like having a 7 and 9 year old ganging up on mom and dad to try to wipe us out! Lots of good laughs.

Our annual special family outing is going to the water slides and I can honestly say I think I am the biggest kid there! We make it an all day even and have an absolute BLAST there.

Glad you had a fun time away and thanks for the chance to win :)

I am so happy for you Sarah, it's great to have fun with family.
My favorite thing to do with my family is going camping.
Here I have only my in-laws, my whole family lives in Peru, so I miss them A LOT!!!!!!
I wish I could be there now.

God bless
Giovana.

PS: I love all you pictures, your kids are adorable.

Becky O said...

I like to take pictures of my family much like the ones on your blog here. (LOL) I like the little moments where everyone is happy and laughing and you can just feel all the joy in the room. It was good to see you all I miss you already and hope that you do get to come home and meet MaKenna and be at jazzies wedding. Love you.

kearneykrafter said...

I have two boys who love sports, so we love to go out and play all the "balls," scocer, base, basket and even volley! Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.....no goodie package is ever small, it's very much enjoyed and appreciated!! Thanks for sharing!

salusa63 said...

Sounds like you had a great time with your family. My boys are older now - 12 and 18. My favorite thing -sounds boring - it when I run errands with them - taking them to buy clothes, books, whatever. That is a special time that we chat about everything and I get caught up with what is really going on with them in their lives. We have our best conversations when just handing out "getting stuff done"! I always try to plan the timing of busy days like this so we end up needing to each lunch out together -more time to talk! :)

j_smokey said...

My favorite thing to do with my boys is to take a hike...at the beach, in the woods, just about anywhere they can explore and catch bugs.

Lacy said...

Great pics!! My favorite thing to do w/ my kiddos (5 & 2) is go to the beach - we go as much as possible in the summer - they love it and are always worn out when we come home.

cary melissa said...

We love to cook out on the grill and play boche ball outside!

I'm with you. A day at the beach with the family is just special. We have a chance to jsut sit, relax & chat. Fortunately, we live in Wilmington, so that's where we go to hang out.

Thanks for the chance to win some goodies! Loved the pictures you posted. My favorite thing to do as a family is gather at the dinner table. We always seem to be rushing from here to there, so some good conversation during dinner is such a treat!! Have a good day!

Liane said...

Love your blog! My fav thing to do is eat dinner at the table. We share our lives at the dinner table. =-)

KAP said...

I love the pictures!! My favorite thing to do with my family is to go to the beach or to play in the water.

We love to go camping, fishing and all kinds of out door things. We love to get away from it all and just enjoy being together. But this coming week we are all going to Disney land for the whole week. That is going to be a big change for us, but we are going to have so much fun. Even though its going to be so much fun Im going to miss the closeness we get going camping. Your fan and friend, Stoweawaymemories

misshawk said...

The pics of your kiddos are beautiful and your blog is so inspiring!

My favorite thing to do with my family is go to our neighborhood park. There's never anyone there, there's a huge woods to explore, tons of play equipment, and we always have so much fun.

Kathryn Garner said...

We LOVE to play games. The kids have so much fun and we laugh so much. We also love to go camping. Haven't had the chance the last couple of years, but are definately going this summer.

I think going to starbucks for coffee and hot chocolate and then to the park for a walk and a play.

Holidays are always good too!

lunurse said...

I love getting together with my brother and his wife and my parents and playing games (like cranium- so funny!!) and having dinner! a nice family vacation is also wonderful too :)

Tina said...

Wonderul pictures of the kids as always! What a lucky woman to have beautiful family! Our son is almost 16 *sniff, sniff*, but we still have fun. We have the most fun just hanging out doing things around home. We are a full-time farm family so we are close.

Sherri said...

We love to go to bookstores - we'll take a whole afternoon or evening and go to all our favourites and linger at each one and top it off with a trip to Starbucks

Tamara Follett said...

I love taking my kids to Disneyland. I think I love it as much as they do. But, if I'm being practical, I'd say that I love all of us cuddling in the mornings.

Anonymous said...

That's so awesome you had such a good time! Ok, my fav is to rent or buy a new movie, pic up some dinner (usually healthy NOT!) and gather up on my bed and eat and watch the movie and be all snuggly!

Have a great weekend!

We love going to the Indianapolis Children's Museum. I bought a grandparents pass plus two. Our grandbabies have a great time even though they are two and a half and one. There is so much to do there and it is always changing.

My Family, my sister's family and my brother's family all love to get together to go "Geocaching". It's kind of like high tech treasure hunting. We have seen the most beautiful places in our own communities that we never would have known were there if we hadn't been "looking for the cache".

I have 2 teenage daughters and I love spending time with them one-on-one. Whatever they want to do is fine with me cuz it's all about us talking and getting to hear about their lives. On the weekends the three of us love to watch scary movies and eat popcorn in the dark.
