Do you have a family night out?

For example: for us, we went to see Toy Story 3. We try to do things together and a family night out can even mean staying home and doing fun things...but, sometimes ya just need to get out of the house.....What are some of the things you do? Now, I don't mean that we just do movies....zoo trips, things like that.....

  • Nope. Can't afford it. We do spend time together, eat dinner together, sit and talk, have coffee together (cocoa for kids), visit extended family together....discuss our day, watch movies, read books, anything that can be done at home and not cost an arm and a leg.

  • No not every week but we do try to go somewhere together at least once a month. Other than that we are home together most of the time and I'm always doing something with my kids!

  • We didn't. The closest thing was that Sunday evenings we tried to keep free for family time, but this was usually just sticking around the house. From time to time we'd go out as a family, but it wasn't something that we had set up on a regular schedule.

  • Sometimes we'll go to a restaurant, the movies, an amusement park, etc. We have 5 kids, from 2.5 to 14, so it's hard for us to find something that everyone will enjoy.

  • We used to go out to eat at least once a week.  When the kids aren't in school we make a day of it.  We pile in the car and drive around for awhile then finally stop and have lunch then spend the day shopping at the mall or something.  Then we might drive around some more, go to a park we find along the way and even stay out long enough to eat dinner somewhere else.

    We did it a LOT when the kids were little.  Now eating out is really expensive (we have 4 kids).  We still try to get out once a week if we have the money.

  • We don't necessarily have "family night out" but we like to play Yahtzee and eat wings on Saturday nights. =)

  • We have 'family fun days' - where we will go and do something fun on a saturday or sunday -- sometimes it is t he museum, sometimes it is going to madison for lunch/supper, sometimes the Zoo, sometimes we go shopping, sometimes we just get in the car and see where we end up, or go to Quad Cities, or the Dells, or hit the resale bookstores, sometimes we will do pizza and a movie night- rent a movie and order pizza.
