Game night

We played Sorry tonight as a family, our first real functional board game experience with the kids. Addie obviously needed lots of help, and bailed out halfway through. Ezra, on the other hand, caught on in a heartbeat and was well on his way to a slam-dunk when Mel showed him who was boss with a come-back win (Ezra had his last piece on his home stretch). I, on the other hand... got to demonstrate good losing...

It was great to be able to initiate Ez into the realm of board games, he has watched countless rounds of Settlers and he was pretty excited to be sitting down actually playing a 'big people' game with us. I have very fond memories of game nights we had growing up and it's a tradition I have long envisioned carrying on with my kids -- fun to be able to start that tonight.

And there's no finer game to start that tradition with than Sorry. Or maybe Stratego...

Yeah, we pretty much passed over Candyland -- still meaning to pick it up for them though. I have to confess that I myself have never actually played Stratego. Maybe the kids will need uncle kinsanth to come and enlighten them sometime...

I was thinking the other day that Krista and I need to come over and do a settlers night sometime.
