Create Family Traditions

One of the things that has been a huge part of my happiness project is recognizing how important making and creating family traditions is to my happiness.

This year, for Fathers' Day, we took my hubby out for a day of fishing, something that I hope will become a family tradition for us. It was such a wonderful, happy day together as a family.

Flannery caught 5 fish...not bad for her first time fishing! And Robi caught 2 whoppers, as well as lots of little fish, too. We threw them all back, because Robi has this deal with fish. They let him catch them, and he agrees to throw them back. Can't argue with that.

I think this day of fishing was such a huge success because it took place outside (so we could all experience nature together), because fishing is challenging (so we were feeling like we were learning something new), and because it was just plain fun.

Happy Fathers' Day to all those dads out there!

What do you love most about your dad?
