1. Spend some family time at the park.
Perhaps the greatest park in all of Vegas is Sunset Park with fishing ponds, a frisbee golf course, tennis courts and much more. With so many available options, a parent can’t go wrong in taking a few hours and going to the park.
2. Get out some board games
The games that you played as a child are still awesome! We have had more fun around our kitchen table with those games. It’s exciting to see a child “get it” and start thinking through the strategy of a certain game.
3. Lunch after church can be a family day!
One of my favorite moments every Sunday is when we all come back together and sit down for lunch ready to discuss what we have learned that morning. Sometimes we go out to lunch and allow someone else to do the cooking and cleaning up. We find this Sunday tradition to produce some of our best family time.
4. Take a little trip.
From my driveway to the parking lot of Disneyland can be trekked in less than 4 hours. This allows us to step away from work and focus completely on our children. It may take a little planning, but it is worth it.
5. Cut out early.
Occasionally, when I can get ahead of my work, I like to cut out a little early and go home to see the kids after school. Realizing there is more to life than my occupation helps me focus on the importance of family.
