My husband and I have 5 children together (with our 6th on the way in about a month), all under the age of 7. I think the best times spent together are when we do the most 'insignificant' things, like playing out in the yard or just playing with building blocks.

Indoors...we color, paint, play games and occassionally have a "pretend" campout where we set up a tent in the living room. (My son is 4 yrs old and not quite keen on the idea of a "real" campout just yet.)

Outdoors...we run and play, ride bikes, go to the park, go for a walk, have a picnic, go to the beach (This is one of our favorites.)

We love our family time! =)

We like to spend time together in many ways.
1. Game night! We let each child pick a game and we all play it together as a family and eat pizza and have a great time.
2. Riding bikes or walking the dogs, we do this as a family and most times we try to walk or ride further than the time before.
3. Going to the beach! We dig and build sandcastles, play soccer, frisbee, volleyball and chase in the water.
4. Checking on our garden that we just started. Everyday we go out and see if we have more tomatoes or squash and how big they are getting. Our raspberries are blooming out into fruit now and that's so exciting.
Thanks for the chance to share and to have a chance to win something as a family.

My husband likes to fish, so I enjoy it when the whole family goes with him. The kids are still young, so they get a little impatient with the fishing part, but my little boy loves the boat ride (and my little girl likes it as long as she's cuddled up close to mommy or daddy!)

Karrisa said...

We love to go camping and fishing as a family. We also have movie nights and family game nights on a regular basis. As my oldest will officially be a teenager in a couple of months, I understand how important these activities are to strengthen the bond and keep the lines of communication open!

The Hazles said...

We love doing anything as long as it is TOGETHER! We esp. love our tradition of sun. night snuggling on the couch, eating pb popcorn, and watching a family movie....I LOVE the snuggles!!!

Robyn said...

Since our kids are small (34 months & 19 months), our travels are limited. Library, parks, neighborhood playground, front yard...but we do absolutely love to go down to our town square to see trains as they pass by the depot. Playground, sandbox, and trains. I imagine us branching out as we get older and am excited about it. I think I will read the rest of these posts for ideas!
And if I could put my two cents in...so far I would pick Michelle with the 6th one on the way. You go girl!

We are major sports fanatics, so no matter the time of year, we are always involved in sports! With that said, it also opens up many windows to have great family time together, as well as lots of fun with friends!

We love to spend our time playing with the grandkids and reliving the good old days when our own kids were little.

Kelly said...

We have 4 boys ages 2-7 and our favorite thing to do as a family is movie night snuggled on the couch with popcorn. We also love to take the boys to the local splashpad, out riding scooters, or to the pool.

Terry said...

We like to spend our free time camping & working on some land we own - DH likes to play with his chainsaw & tractor, I like to takes nature photos & relax by the campfire & the boys play paintball.

Melissa said...

Our small family of three and two doggies like to camp. We have a small camper that we take all over our beautiful state on long weekends and explore nature and play games at night.

My daughter and I spend lots of time together doing lots of things, but our favorite together time is a day out shopping. We shop for a while, have lunch then take in a movie. This is our "girl" time! dmatthews38751 at yahoo dot com

My little family- my hubby, my 7 mo old, and I- like to laugh together. My little boy has the cutest laugh, so we'll do anything to make him giggle!

We have 2 boys (9 & 14) that our big into sports, both playing and watching, so we spend a great deal of family time at one ballpark or another. When all the sports get the best of me I love grabbing my 2 nieces (2 & 3) and enjoying a girls days painting their nails and making our own lip gloss in between tea parties (don't tell anybody but my youngest enjoys the tea parties as much as his cousins do, lol).

We love "family band night" playing Band Hero on the xbox. It's the only video game Mom (me) will actually play!

My family loves just hanging out together. We enjoy batmitton and building a camp fire in the back yard or just hanging by the pool.
We love Nestle Products and Jane4girls.

Molly Garza said...

Trying to get my family together is difficult but when we all come together it usually is at my son & his wife's house. Our son does competition BBQ so there is never a guess as to what will be served. We then show old family movies from when we were all kids. It is a Blessing.

Queen of Scatterville said...

We do everything together, so it's usually the little things that are the best. Exploring creeks, going to the zoo, playing games together. Fun Fun Fun.

Sarah said...

Our favorite pasttime is packing a picnic lunch and going to the park. Our favorite park is about 1 hour 15 minutes away, and it's worth every minute of the drive! There's a lake with ducks, a ferry, and when we're done, we go for a short walk to the Old Market to grab old-fashioned candy. When we're feeling less-ambitious, we eat outside on our porch and then play in the backyard while daddy gardens!

Vickie said...

we are outdoor/nature nuts and we garden. we love many things from hiking, camping, fishing, flea markets...we love games and cards, going to pickin on the square to listen to mountain music on Saturday nights (vacation in season) then getting homemade kettle popcorn or homemade ice cream. Going gem mining and the beach where we take a picnic or cookout, build sandcastles. Sometimes we get a fire permit and build a fire on the beach and stay the night and roast hot dogs and marshmallows.

Our grown children and grandchildren and us like to go to a small trailer that we have on the Arkansas River. We enjoy fishing, skiing, cook outs and playing games.

As a family we like to watch movies, play board games, run around out side and play hide and seek. I love that my kids are little and I can keep acting like a kid with them!
