The Blue Hutch initiated Friday Family Nights this February. It’s been a test run of sorts. This is the first time in our history that the children are able to stay awake past 6:30PM without consequences that affect the entire family and, I would argue, the entire West County.
It has been fun to order pizza, snuggle down under blankets, and to watch some family films together. So far we have watched The Sword in the Stone, 1/2 of Alice in Wonderland, The Flo Show Creates a Buzz, and Nemo.
My favorite so far was Nemo. I put some thought into it and made it a bit more fun. We had special theme snacks: seaweed, goldfish (colors and s’mores), swedish fish, and turtles (dude). It was super fun and watching my son giggle about it all was priceless.
It’s one little night a week but I have started really looking forward to it. I think this week we are going to play games. Anybody have a favorite?
