The Bas Family
Glen Carbon, IL
What is your favorite family tradition?
Every morning, once everyone is awake, we put on music and just dance. Everyone gets involved and we just let loose. It's a great way to start the day!
Tell us about your favorite family story.
Twice a year we take off on a mini vacation to a cabin and just unwind. We swim, we play, we eat, we disconnect and just enjoy all the little moments. We call it our happy place (for a reason)
What is your family's motto?
Be faithful, be honest and always be true to yourself.

Tell us about your funniest parenting story (we all have them!)
