Family Day & an Outfit

At least once or twice a week my husband and I try to do a family day.  Something where we can get out of the house, entertain the kids (wear them out for early bedtime) and just enjoy each other.  Sometimes these days are movie days spent sipping hot cocoa and watching Kung Fu Panda.  

On Sunday we decided to treat the boys.  They have been obsessed with the tram that runs through town around here.  They always yell when they see it and tell me they want to ride it.  So we thought, let's do just that!  There is a Marche de Noel going on in town with a huge Ferris wheel, a merry-go-round and lots of cute little Christmas shops.  We could have very easily drove, but we thought it would be more fun to catch the tram.  The boys loved it.  Tae kept talking about how fast it was going.  They really aren't that fast, but he must have had it in his mind that we were going fast!
The boys waiting for the tram.
Tae and daddy on the Ferris wheel.  I have got to be honest, it was a little scary.  I have never been afraid of heights before, but this was a bit different.  I had my babies with me!  It just made me nervous.  The view was gorgeous, though!
Eli was a little nervous too.  He was all cuddled up next to me, it was cute.  He managed a smile for this picture.
Me, Eli, and Spiderman.  That's all I need.
Me and my boys.  Love those boogers.
Lavar caught me zoning out on the tram... haha                 Then I made him take some outfit pictures!
Boots, Top & leggings: Target // Jacket: Berska // Scarf: Paris market // Hat: Italian market
Then later that night be called a babysitter and went to see a movie in Lyon!  The Fete De Lumineres was going on, so it was crazy busy.  I kind of wanted to go to that, but we went last year and didn't plan ahead this year.  Maybe I will share some of last year's pictures with you and act like I went this year...
This hairstyle will have a video tutorial on SITS Girls on Wednesday if you want to check it out!  I guest posted there yesterday with Tips on How to Wear Bold Lips.

So overall it was a wonderful family day.  I love days like that where we can just spend time together, enjoy each other's company.  What do you do for family days?  Do you have something that is specific for your family?  I love to hear other ideas, I sometimes like to try to adapt them to fit our family and try something new!

Happy Tuesday!

Cancel my question about the Fete de Lumineres! haha
You look adorable. I absolutely loved family days like this when I was younger and we were stationed in Germany. Since Hubs and I is all our "family" consists of, I think our date nights/days count as family days. :)
