So the other night 4 out of 5 of the people in our family were on the way home from a soccer game, when husband started playing around with his hat trying to give it the slumped beanie look that is so in. It had me laughing so hard, I got my iPhone out to take a picture. While I was doing that he found one more item to make the picture go from funny to silly.
We all looked at each other and said “Thomas has to do it too”.
I uploaded all 5 clown pictures to Facebook with the title “our family of clowns” and loved the collage Facebook made of them so much I took a screen shot of it and shared it on my Facebook page for Snail Pace Transformations a day or so later (by the way follow me on Facebook for updates all week long).
That night I was reminded once again. Family fun doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. It can be made from a silly plastic clown nose, that someone bought your husband in a fundraiser.
Family fun also doesn’t have to take up a lot of time. This whole memory making moment took all of 5 minutes, and we laughed about it for an hour.
Family fun can also bring others joy. People were still liking the “our family of clowns” Facebook status days later, and with every like I couldn’t help but think that our family fun brought a smile to someones face. Smiles are contagious! so who knows how many people were touched by our 5 minutes of free fun playing around with a camera and a clown nose.
