I voted no, but I think doing what you feel is best for your family is cool. If others want to judge it that way, that's their problem. Also, there is no reason "doing what's best for your family" can't mean a little fun.
Everyone has a different definition of cool. I always took my kids places and did a lot of things with them. That's my definition of cool. One of my youngest daughter's friends once said the only reason she ever got to go anywhere was when she went with us. Her parents could afford anything; the just didn't care about spending time with her.
