I mentioned it to Andrew, and we've been trying to do one fun thing, all as a family, once a week. Scout calls it our Family Adventures, which I'm totally encouraging. Not necessarily something huge and expensive, just fun and making memories together. Something where we are focused on being together once a week instead of tag teaming the parenting aspect. An activity that is fun for the kids, where we can all play. We've gone to a marine touch-tank and walked along the water front, we've gone to the park, we've gone out to breakfast and then played at the mall, we went swimming, and this week we went to Wild Things. Wild Things is a easy, playful, unstructured group for kids. They meet at a different park every month and explore as a group, with their parents. Lots of fun! I snapped a few pictures while we were wandering.
