It's always fun when my family gets together to play games. We love to play any kind of games, wether its board, card, or acting kind of games. Recently I had the chance to play with some of my siblings, so I thought I'd tell you about it.
For Easter, my husband Derek and I drove up to Newport and spent the evening with my parents and two youngest siblings, Ian and Nancy. We had a yummy dinner (BBQ'd steak and baked potatoes with salad and rolls- a break from the traditional ham, but still good. Especially the way my dad BBQ's steak), ate some Easter candy, and then Ian, Nancy, Derek and I had a Super Mario Brother's fest on the old Nintendo. It was so much fun. We sat on Nancy's bed in her room and took turns playing when someone died. I havent' played that in so long, and so I was a little rusty (like I was ever really that good at it!) Lots of fun!
Then yesterday I got a call from Kim. She had called me on her cell phone, but she had Jamie and Shaina on 3-way calling on her home phone. She wanted to know if I wanted to play Ticket-to-Ride with them (a really fun board game, which you can also play online). My response: "Heck yes I do!" But first they wondered if they could get me in on the conference call, if Shaina called me on her phone. Amazingly, it worked! There were four of us, but wait, let's try one more person- Jamie called Warren. We now had 5 people on the phone all able to hear each other! It was crazy, but fun. That was the five oldest in our family all talking. Then we played Ticekt to ride online, which Kim won. Ahhh, good times. Anyway, the point is I love playing games, and it's espcially fun when I can do it with my family.
