Spend quality time with family friends to enrich your life

Spend Quality Time With Family Friends To Enrich Your Life

Our relationships with others give us some of the greatest joy in our lives. Spending quality time with family friends is a great way for two or more families to enjoy each others' company. The kids get to play with other kids while the adults get a chance to relax, talk and enjoy some beverages.

Finding a fun activity makes this quality time even more enjoyable. The next time you plan to get together with family friends consider some of these ideas:

Visit a festival

Your town has many free festivals so check your local paper. Festivals are a great low-cost activity for families.

We recently enjoyed a Scandinavian Festival with some family friends. At this festival we tried some foods, viewed interesting wares and listened to some music. 

Enjoy some camping

Camping is a great way to spend quality time with family friends. We have several regular camping trips we do each year with different family friends. It is a great way to connect with them over a 2-3 day period. Many fond memories come from these types of trips.

Our kids love to sit around the fire and tell ghost stories. During the day the kids love to climb nearby rocks and find other nearby activities like enjoying some water, horseback riding or riding their bikes.

Note – the photo for today's article came from a recent trip we took with another family of 5. We camped, attended a festival, spent the afternoon at a lake and generally had a wonderful time.

Visitor a local park

Picnics and bbqa's are a classic way to spend quality time with family friends. The kids can run around and enjoy themselves while the adults catch up. Picnicking at a park is a fun way to get the whole family outside having a good time.

Bring some games to entertain everyone:

  • Bocee Ball
  • Baseball
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
  • Horseshoes

If the park has a lake or river enjoy some of these activities:

  • Boating
  • Swimming
  • Fly-fishing or tackle fishing
  • Tube down the river

Activities to enjoy inside with family friends

When the weather doesn't cooperate and you need to stay inside, try these board games:

  • Pictionary
  • Life
  • Scene it
  • Monopoly
  • Apples to Apples (Jr. version is a favorite with our kids)
  • Don't forget the classic playing cards as well

Video games can be enjoyable as well. We like to choose ones that 4 people can play and that involve movement. It is also nice to pick games that are easy to learn. These could include:

  • Sports games like wii bowling          
  • Dance games like Just Dance or Dance Central
  • Auto-racing, especially MarioKart

What are your favorite ways to spend quality time with family friends?

I seek to love and enjoy life, not just for a moment but the whole journey. My mission is to help you love and enjoy life too.

I’ve been stressed out, burned out, and hopeless and I clawed my way out of that place and now have the life I always wanted.

I see other busy women (like you) living the same busy pattern and my goal is to guide you on the path to enjoying and loving life.
