Family Fun Days

Do you ever go on a Family Fun Day, like a whole family date? It's something I'd love to start doing. A special day where we go somewhere or do something together. It doesn't have to be expensive or complicated - best if it's not, just a day or half a day to spend time with each other, do a fun activity and enjoy our little family. It doesn't even need to be a Family Fun Day in particular, it might just be a nice day with friends.

I've got a few ideas, but I'm not coming up with much. What Family Fun Days do you like to do? I'm guessing that what you want to do changes as your kiddies' ages, interests and capabilities change?

University lakes

Here's my starter list
- Go for a picnic at the botanical gardens or the University lakes (above.)
- Go to the beach before it gets too cold again. (I'm a Queenslander so I get cold in the frozen food aisle; I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to cold weather.)
- A special suprise that Chubs and I have planned for Daddy. I can't post here in case he sees it. I will update how it goes, I promise! I want to go somewhere local that Chubs and I went to together and she LOVED, but Dear Husband wasn't with us then, so it will be a suprise for him :)
- I have discount tickets to an attraction which Chubs is probably too young for, but the three of us will be able to go for $11 total plus petrol money, so I think it will still be a nice day. Again I'm keeping you in suspense as a suprise for Dear Husband.

My list seems way too short. Can you hit me with your ideas please? What is fun (and not expensive) for your family and/ or your friends? What do you think would be a good idea for a family of three with a nine month old?

  1. I'd love to start doing this idea too, as hubby is working way too much lately and I'd love to start Saffy to new places. Things I loved as a small kid were flying a kite in the park/beach, picking out books from the local library or even going there for story time, watching theatre shows e.g. Sesame Street when it came to town and I've heard play centres are good fun/ikea...not that I ever got to do that.

    2. Oh, I forgot about the library. I'll have to do that one - they do a toddler music thing at the library too. We've tried two play centres. One was when she was a newborn so she didn't do much obviously :) but she liked the other one we tried last week. She's just getting old enough to like doing things like the ball pit (and some are free for babies under 12 months).

      Do you take Saffy to the dog park?

      PS - did you recognise the photo above? I took it at your wedding :)

  2. We do take Saffy to the dog park - she loves it. She's also gone to a dog beach (but on leash) at Redcliffe and seemed to enjoy that. I do recognise the photo, I just didn't know it was taken on the day of my wedding. Extra brownie points for you :).
