In our family, we like to be goofy, enjoy silliness, and make memories.
Pagoda Day is a good one for that.
It was started by our 13-year-old son, Edward, when he was 3 years old. He wanted something that would celebrate the awesomeness of the Pagoda, a local landmark in the Reading area. He planned it out with Emily, complete with a date and musical theme song. We played along but kept saying it was "too far away" and "maybe we'd go there one day"...and then we surprised them after dinner on their chosen date by driving up Mt. Penn to see it up close and personal -- and to take a family photo.
As you can see here and here and here and here, it has become something of an annual tradition (sadly, not always blogged about).
So on this our 11th Pagoda Day, we extend to you a warm and fun Happy Pagoda Day!
What kind of silly and fun family traditions do you celebrate?
