Steve and I are game people. We love games. We’ve passed that love on to our kids and each one of them have their favorites. Steve had a great idea to do a family game night complete with a table full of treats. With the span of our kids ages its often hard to find games we can all play together. So we had to get creative.
The first games of the night were chosen by Cannon. Everyone participated in his games and he was beyond excited to have everyone play. (He was hilarious at headbands and did a pretty good job!) After his games were complete, he stepped away from the table and we started a movie for him. Next we played games Bennett would enjoy. He puttered out after a bit and joined Cannon watching a movie. Which left the two oldest at the table with a stack of games to choose from.
We played until it got late – the kids were officially sugared up and we sent them off to bed. (great parenting!) Sometimes, we have lofty expectations for nights like this, but we all agreed it was a fun night. Every kid had their chance at playing games they enjoyed with the family but at the same time Hallie and Hunter weren’t stuck playing little kid games the whole night. I hate to say it as if I’m surprised, but it was a successful game night. We’ll definitely try it again – perhaps we can be disappointed next time. 😉
