Family Day

Today we have a statutory holiday, called Family Day. My American friends are celebrating President's Day, as I understand it, some have a day off and some don't.

Here, we have a day off. My hubby is off work and the kids are off school. Everything is closed.

We decided that we needed to get out of the house. After all we have already been cooped up for two days, I don't know if we can take another.


Wish us luck as we try to find something fun for the whole family to do. Something that is not too expensive, since it has to be indoors. Easier said then done.

Until later..... Happy Family Day!

And because I couldn't resist sharing this one...

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not catch my five year old son, Matthew, using his little sister's hair to wipe his runny nose. No, not my kid, he would never wipe his nose on anything but kleenex, and most certainly not his two year old sister!!

Gotta run, family fun is awaiting....

Now that is a holiday we need to celebrate here! My husband is off for Presidents Day, and so far the three of us have just been very lazy. :-)

Aww, I LOVED the not me post. Haha ... kids! :-) Have a great family day! We're trying to do the same thing around here today. Bikes and trampolines and grilling out. God bless the weather in S. Texas.

Look at all of this loveliness that I happened upon while visiting your site today. A new blog header and a fabulous family photo. Both equally as great looking!

I'll be curious to read about what your family ended up doing today. My guess is that it will involve food...at least it usually does where my family is concerned. :)

Happy Family Day!!!
I like your holiday better than ours ; )

It's so weird that every province is calling today a different day. Here it is "Louis Riel Day" I like "Family Day" better. Though I would not be opposed to having a "Louis Riel" AND a "Family Day" just to get 2 days holiday! :)

Jen said...

I hope that you have a great family day!

I hope you had a really great family day!!! We have been out of commission for a few days. I think it is so awesome to have a family day like that. There is nothing in life that needs celebrating more than family.

Happy family day to y'all! I think we need FAMILY DAY here in the states! Maybe it would remind us that family is important! I am sure y'all found something perfect to do! Can't wait to read what it was!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the family pic! BEAUTIFUL...Have a great night! XOXO

Lana said...

Family Day?? We don't have that stat here in BC. Funny though, as Remembrance Day is a stat here, but not there.
Great pic! You have a beautiful family. ☺ ☺

How did I miss this post yesterday? The idea of a Family Day is so incredibly cool. Your government rocks!

Can I just say that I love your family? Cuz I do.
