Happiness Is…The Family Fair



My dad’s company picnic was this weekend. It is something that the kids look forward to every single year. What’s not to love? Free food, unlimited turns in the bouncy house, tons of games and activities, belly aches all around, tantrums, sugar highs, and lots of tears near the end. We enjoy it all… until that last hour.

I think more than that though, it is seeing my dad all puffed up, strutting us around like a proud peacock, and showing off his children and grandkids. We do it for that moment every year. Just that moment makes it all worth it for me as a daughter!

What family events do you do every year to make your family proud? Do you have an event or reunion that your family does?
