We’re big believers in family time.  We pull our kids from neighborhood play by 5pm so we can have a couple house of quality time together.  Sometimes they get annoyed that they have to leave their friends but most of the time, they love it.  Our biggest family night activity is watching a movie or fav show and munching on popcorn.  Easy, free and allows cuddle time!  Here are 100 Family Time Ideas, it’s so important to have quality time together when they’re young.
