It is the perfect excuse to take a family vacation, spend a few weekends doing something summery before school starts up, or just take stock in what’s great about your family. The origins of Family Fun Month aren’t actually known, but it’s nice that some people thought it was a good idea to get families together for something other than chores, appointments, or recitals!
