Last year felt like a rush of activities, mostly good, but mainly too many.
This year, in efforts to slow down and enjoy time with our little family, we implemented a new tradition. We titled it appropriately, ‘Family Fun Night‘. In the words of MissE, “This is my FAVORITE day of the week!”
We are only about three weeks in, but every week on this day we block out any and all other activities and do stuff as a family. This time we packed a picnic and spent the evening at a local orchard.
It was good for the kids to run and be loud and be kids. It was good for us as parents to run and be loud and enjoy our kids.
Hi, Handsome! Remember when we brought you here when you were just a week old and you cried the whole time? Yeah, we hadn’t been back since. Glad to see your feelings have changed.

We finished the night with apple doughnuts, homemade caramels, and cider.
