Or, at least I'd hope so! Do you play games as a family? We do but not nearly often enough.

Our current favorites are Apples to Apples, Ruckus and War. They all get the boys a little wound up and they have such great smiles when they're having fun. I should be taking more pictures when we do play games :)

We don't play as often as we should either. Darn TV, homework, and jobs!!!! LOL

We like Apples to Apples too! The boys like Risk but I could do without that. We do the classics like Rumikub, Life and Monopoly; enjoy card games like Uno/Uno Attack, Phase 10, Boom-O; and love looking for new games. Our latest we were introduced to are Dutch Blitz (more for teens and adults) and Banagrams (a word/scrabble type game). And of course we get our fair share of CandyLand, Chutes & Ladders, and Memory in with the 4yo.

We love doing family nights! Friday is family night around here and we switch up the activities. Sometimes we'll watch a movie and sometimes we'll play a Wii game or board game. The boys received Operation and Battleship for Christmas so we've been playing those lately. Wii Sports is also a ton of fun.

I love family time because it is when we focus on each other without outside distractions. Phones and computers are turned off and we focus on having fun and laughing together. The best times, really!

We have always been a big game-playing family.
