Family Gaming Night

A long time ago, pre-Willow, we established Family Gaming night. Usually Friday night, we would bring out the board and card games and we would play. When Michael was younger it was checkers and other games made especially for his age group. By the time we had progressed to more adult games--the Family Gaming night was postponed because of Newborn.

Last night, after Chewy (my new name for Husband) successfully put Willow to bed...we re-established Family Gaming Night. It was awesome to spend the time with Michael and we had a great time. Yes, the parental units probably would have preferred to just collapse in a heap in front of the television, and yes there were times we started to talk adult conversations and then realized we had to table that discussion...but I think we would not have missed it for the world. We stayed up until midnight.

Absolutely fabulous. We don't have a designated night but we play a lot of board games as a family.
