We do alot of things together. Lately, our five year old loves to play Life with my husband and I. My husband is the banker, I help her with the money, and she moves all the cars how many spaces each needs to be moved. We watch movies together. I color with her. My husband and I are aspiring writers. As a family, we "write" together. We each add a sentence to a story while either my husband or I type it out.

What a great thread :)

My husband and I really enjoy taking long walks with my daughter. She's just starting to master her little baby run. She'll run a little ways before us, then turn around and jet back. It's really cute.

We also do a lot of arts & crafts. Our little girl LOVES to paint and color, so we have a ton of activity ideas around that. So much that my husband and I actually put together an iPhone app to keep track. If you're looking for fun ideas to do with your family, you can always give us a try at www.thelittleapp.com

We like to leave the city and go hiking. My husband has this crazy idea, though that since we enjoy hiking, we'd also enjoy camping. Unfortunately, I don't sleep on the ground, and I don't love bugs.

My little family likes to get together and take walks anywhere. The mall, the park (our 9 month old loves the baby swings) and we meet people and other babies while we are out. We take our baby everywhere, from the grocery store to accompanying us to our dentist appointments where he gets to play with the toys in the waiting room.

We love to go camping, hiking and fishing; we also go out on our boat fishing. All of these are great bonding activities and things that my autistic son loves to do!

My son is 5 months old, and every day we all take the dogs out for a walk. We either put him in his stroller and go up the street or into town, or into the woods so the dogs can be off leash, and I wear my son in a pack. My son seems to like being outside, and my husband and I really look forward to spending this family time together.

We dress up and go to the Renaissance Faire, my daughter is almost two and loves it. We also sing, be silly, and dance. She likes to help clean up around the house, and even though we are 27 we sit down at the table and color with her, and we sit down at the table for meals with the rule of no cell phones allowed and she knows it. We have movie night here and there, but we always, always every night without fail have story time, sing and then say prayers before bed.

Hmm my son is only 11 months so he's happiest on the days that both Mom and Dad are home to spend ALL day with him. Doesn't much matter what :)

Well we like going to the park, riding bikes, playing tea party and playing with her blocks and watching her daddy play basketball! You can never get enough of family time! We just love it:-)

I think our favorite is swimming, followed by the park. I know my daughter's favorites are cooking and coloring with us. She's so good when it comes to the stove/oven when cooking that I'm starting to enjoy it more too.

We like to watch Dancing with the Stars... It ALWAYS turns into a "Pajama Dance Party" on moms bed! My kids love it and it is a fun way to not only get some exercise in but wear them out and get them ready for bed. DWTS is on a few times a week so its something my kids look forward to it! :)

When the kids were younger, we played games together, cooked, did crafts and such. Now that they are teens, we just don't have that much time, but still try to eat together, at least dinner. The kids usually go to each other's concert or games to cheer each other on.
