The New Year
January first we have a huge college football game day party and all of the kids get to pick teams. If their team wins, they trade wins for chores with the adults. (one of my favorites as a kid)
San juan islands
We all chip in a quarter and make a pool for who catches the first fish, the biggest fish and the most fish for the day or couple days!
We take 2 annual family trips no matter what! We go salmon fishing in Alaska and deer hunting in eastern Washington. Most of the time is spent camping so we chat, cook, make goofy jokes and play games with a little hunting, fishing and learning in the middle. Its all about the time together.
