Games Boys Play, IV

Once upon a time we went on a vacation. Yes, big news -- we don't do this much since having children. But once, a long, long, long time ago we took the boys to the mountains. It was a great weekend and we stayed in a nice condo, kept the boys active doing lots of adventerous stuff, and went to some really nice restaurants (considering we had 2 small children with us). But when we asked Cooper what his favorite part of the entire trip was he quickly and frankly answered, "When I stayed up late and played games with mommy and daddy." My husband and I took this meaningful advice to heart. We started investing in all types of games and diligently try to play games with the entire family. But I see, now, that the boys like to play a game with each other the very most.

Ok, you've GOT to teach me how you take such adorable pictures! Either that or maybe I should just hire you to come over some evening and take pictures of Tori that I can then claim as my own. Hmmm...

What are some of your favorite games? We just discovered high ho the cherry o or something like that. Easy enough for LeiLei but interesting enough for everyone.

Love that picure of Cooper with his finger above his lip--he looks so deep in thought, planning his next move!

No, wait...I just realized that's Mason--they look so much alike there!

Such great facial shots. You are a good photog!

I love games. Claudia and I have been getting into what's called German style games or designer games (as the authors--the actual person who "wrote it"--of the games are on the box). Most are for 4 players and they are designed so that no one gets eliminated. They are probably a tad advanced for these lads, but I highly recommend Cheeky Monkey. I think they'd like it.
