Hi Friends! Welcome to our monthly link up. My co-hosts are Adrienne, Dara, Jen, Joanne, and Lauren. This month we sharing our Top 5 Favourite Family Activities.
Camping - We go camping at least twice a summer and everyone loves it. We love the outdoor, non-screen, active time together. We get the kids to help set up, but also can tell them to "go play". I love not having to do anything during the day except hike, go to the beach, and sit around the fire. I know camping is a lot of work to prepare, set up, and cook, but it is all worth it in the end.
Skiing - Skiing takes up a lot of our time in the winter, we ski every weekend and have gone on a ski holiday for March Break for the past two years. It is something we can all do together, and we can all go at our own pace (which now means that I am the slow one people are waiting for!).
Switch Games - My boys love playing video games, and although I am not thrilled that this is a major pastime, Dave and I do get in on the action when we can play Mario Kart or the Sports games, like bowling, tennis, or golf.
Picking Songs - When we are in the car, we have gotten into the habit of E picking out the music. He knows all these weird songs from Fortnite and from his friends. They are usually pretty catchy, even though some are annoying. We will also set up a music queue where everyone gets to choose something and we keep going in that pattern.
Neighbourhood Get-togethers - We are lucky we live in a neighbourhood with people we like to hang out with and who have kids the same age as our kids. We camp together, ski together, have parties, and the best, just have random meet ups on the weekend where the parents get to chat (and enjoy a drink or two) and the kids keep themselves entertained outside.
