Family Surfing Night #14

Hey!  We made it to Friday!  This week we enjoyed one of our favorite family activities, Family Surfing Night, where we share the best of the web with the family.  You can read how Family Surfing Night got started }here{  As far as family activities go, this is the ace in the hole - everyone always wants to do this one.

When I looked to see what episode Family Surfing Night this was, I was shocked to see that our last FSN post was over a year ago.  How can that be???  We've had several FSN's since last February, and alas, alas, the links to quality viewing that cannot be retrieved.  Before I share this week's entries, allow me to give honorable mention to a couple videos from those lost Family Surfing Nights.  You've probably seen them by now, but they bear repeating.

First, the AMAZING Dove soap commercial where women are drawn by a forensic artist, based on their own description of themselves.  I was hesitant to share this one, since FSN's are generally light hearted, but the kids were as touched by it as I was.  Watch this video.  And then remember:  you are so much more beautiful than you think!

And of course, the great debate over "sprinkling" or "raining" ... this video is quoted at least once a day at our house, STILL:

And then this one ... DANCE!  Dance like nobody's watching!!

And now, for your viewing pleasure, Family Surfing Night #14 ...

From Nathan, a fond blast from the past:

From Dan, a fishing trip gone ... well, just watch:

From Abbie, a charming Anime (the video begins to play a second time; when you see the credits in Chinese, it's over :o):

From Melissa, a montage of dance numbers from all the best movies you love:

From Ben, an edgy steam punk music video:

From Aaron, How to Beat a Monkey at Chess.  Because we need to know this:

And the winner is:  Abbie's whimsical entry - it will make you smile.  I wish I had a chair like that :o)
