The McCartney family hangs out together... on the Great Wall of China

Today, May 15, is the International Day of Families - a day to take off from the pressures of everyday mundanity and slide into a barrell of fun with the kids, the inlaws, the outlaws.

Go on, let it all go and just hang out today. Don't even plan anything. Just see where the day takes you. So long as you're hanging with the fam and appreciating each other, that's all that matters - that's what this day is all about.

The theme for this year's International Day of Families is "Mothers and Families: Challenges in a Changing World".

"...Activities for IYF will seek to promote the basic human rights and fundamental freedoms accorded to all individuals by the set of internationally agreed instruments formulated under the aegis of the United Nations, whatever the status of each individual within the family, and whatever the form and condition of that family..."
