Do you have a family game night or do anything fun together as a family? What sort of things do you do together and what brings you back to do it again?

We don't play games often enough but I LOVE seeing how happy my kids get when we play a rowdy game of Apples to Apples or even spar together at TKD.

We too have older kids, so you have their work schedules, social schedules and sports, clubs, scouts, etc.... We will occasionally do a quikc hand or two of Uno, before heading up to study, etc... We used to like to see a movie, but that is hard to do now. Dh and dd love to play Dungions and Drogons and play with friends often. Both kids are in sports and the other will come with to cheer their sibling on when they can or wathc a play or concert too. We do eat dinner together when ever we can, at least 2 nights a week.

The girls have a big age gap. 8 1/2 years. So it's even hard to pick something that both would like to do. In the summer, we go four wheeling together. We all have our own wheelers. We also have snow machines (snowmobiles) but some times its too cold to ride and this winter has been too cold to ride except for one week. We were too busy. In the spring we will go for sure!! Otherwise, we do have a few games that all fo us like to play and then we really try hard to have dinner together at least a couple of nights a week.

It's sad but as your kids get older it gets hard to do things as a family.
