Do you have family game night?

We used to do this all the time but recently life has just seemed to get in the way. This weekend, we did pull out the Jenga blocks and next thing you know, we are playing for a good 2 hours. I forgot how fun it was and how much of a good time it is to play board games with the kids.

Do you play board/card games with your kids or have something like a family game night?

We used to do this often, but haven't lately. Like you said, things just get so busy and as my kids are getting older, they have so many other things going on. We need to make time for it, as we all really enjoy it.

Oh Chutes and Ladders and Hi Ho Cherry O would be fun for that age. My kids used to love those games.

Exactly. I forgot just how much fun we used to have when it did it all the time. When we played yesterday I couldn't believe it had been so long because we had a great time.

We used to but like you life has seemed to get in the way.  I think I'm gonna make a family game night tonight it's a rainy day and we are being a lazy family today so it would be perfect.  And omg I love Jenga I use to rule that game!  We don't own it now but I'm totally wanting to go get it now just because you reminded me how much I love that game.

No, we don't.  Brady is too little for games like that.  One day we will though!

I pulled out the candy land and I played with my boyfriend's son. He beat me 3 times. I tried to include my Logan. I fee like down syndrome or not he's almost 4 he should be able to play it. No he tried to eat the pieces and luck the board. I couldn't make him get that it's not real candy. Lol ill keep trying.

No. I tried a few months ago and it was a disaster. My girls are 5 and 2 so I thought I would try this winter.
