Over the years we used to have different games that were the 'flavor of the month or the year'. From Old Maid and Uno when the children were small, to Boggle, Monopoly, Life or even once they were married, Poker, we spent hours as a family playing games together and just enjoying one another's company. Which is what made me realize how valuable it is to play games with our grandchildren as they grow older.
On Saturday we spent the day with Aidan and Jaxon. When we got there Aidan had already started a game of Risk with Jamie so I took over. Little did I realize that I was already set up to lose big time while Aidan literally took over the world!! He's only 6 but he already understands how the game works!! And he was so excited as you can tell from the picture.
Later on in the day we played a simplified version of Ticket to Ride, an adult game that Jamie has revised for little men like Aidan and now Jaxon to play.(we play just one route at a time if anyone wants to know what we do)
