There’s a five week span between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day referred to as Family Month. Started back in 1882, this month places emphasis on moms and dads across the country spending more time with their children. I don’t know about you but having a time set aside to truly focus on family is great. It gives us the perfect excuse to plan family outings and family nights. In a busy world, family time can get pushed to the background of life and forgotten. But we all need that intentional time to come together, communicate, bond, have fun, and connect.

In our family the kids love when we watch movies and play board games with them. Of course, family night wouldn’t be complete without some sweet treats as well.
