Sunday is Family Day!!!!!!

In the beginning when Scott and I got married Sunday was always family day even before we had kids. We would always go driving around and share our dreams, or get ice cream...go to the beach(we lived in Florida 4 yrs) ect......When Madison came along we didnt have to go anywhere as long as we hung out together. I have never let Scott schedule golf on this day nor have I gone and done something without him. For some reason Sunday is the end of the week..a time to wind down rest and just be with family. So yesterday Scott worked in the yard all day and the temp was 100. Madison swam in the pool and I sat inside working on my blog while Miller took a 2 hour nap. Now..your thinking that doesnt sound like spending time together. You'r right. For some reason we have gotten away from what was once so important to us. I realized this last night and decided to get us back on track for this Sunday. We go to church together and come home and do our seperate things....well, not this weekend. We are going to do an activity together and enjoy it! Family is the most important thing in our life besides God. And we take this for granted so much. I need to come up with something for this weekend, wether it be a cookout by the pool, playing a game, or just sitting around talking. It's going to be great. I'll keep you informed next week. So just remember how much your family means to you and how lucky you really are to have them. Keep them close to your heart and stay involved with each other. You are family but you can also be friends. In my household Sunday is Family Day......and we love it!

Sounds like you and I have lots in common!!

We like to have family time, too. It's not always on Sundays, but we do try to do family stuff often. Swimming is one of our faves and we also like to play games. It's hard to find stuff for everyone to be involved in when you have a little one though. Now that our youngest is 5 it is getting easier. We also have family movie night. Mr. Happy and the kids recorded an original song entitled "Family Movie Night" and we play the song, order pizza and have a little picnic on the living room floor while we watch a movie everyone can enjoy...it's lots of fun!

I love this, Jen. You are so right. Family matters more than anything and the least we can all do is set one day out of the week aside for each other. The cookout by the pool sounds like a great start. My husband is a golf addict, too. I feel your pain. :-) I tried to learn - ridiculous - so rather than just tell him goodbye at the front door, I decided to join him anyway. I'm his CADDY! And we love every minute together on the golf course. There's always a way, you know?

I just came across your blog and wanted to say hi. Your kids are so cute and thanks for the reminder we all need of putting family first behind time with God. Keep up the great blogs!

I hope you find something fun to do and then we can all read about it. By the way I checked out the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville and I don't know if I could stay there. Girl, you are so brave. Me and my 16 year old daughter were looking at it and it looked so crazy.
