we have started to do it just recently, we have three children but our oldest is 4. now that she can play some games, on Friday nights the 3 of us (and sometimes the 2 year old if she's interested) will play some of her games like candy land, memory, etc. It's been cold here too so we'll have hot cocoa and some kind of snack as we play :) we usually do this about an hour before her bedtime.
anyway i think it's important for us, because hubby works 50 hours a week and doesn't get to spend much time with us. he usually only gets to see his family about 4 hours a day, and the oldest about 2 hours cause i take her to school early. so its nice for them to have some quality time with daddy, and i like the "routine" of it.
we also only eat together as a family on saturdays & sundays, due to the fact he doesn't get home from work til 7:30 or later. it's great to have him there with us, and we'll talk about our day and stuff. again, i think it's important for us since we are forced to spend so little time together.
what about you?

It's just me and my son and we are really busy most of the time- always running around or out doing something so I try to make sure that we get to stay home and relax at least once a week spending some quality time together. The older he gets the more fun we have =)
