New weekly game night and Momma's birthday picnic
For the longest time, we have claimed Friday nights as family movie night. I love it because when the Mr. is home... we get to have a date at the kitchen island and the kids get to watch a movie in front of the TV and relax eating their dinner as well.
I wanted to start doing a game night for us now on Saturday nights. We put it to the test this past Saturday. I wasn't sure how Boomer would do but he did wonderfully!
We had a great time playing "Don't Break the Ice" and "Don't Spill the Beans." Plus, I wanted to do a little something special with them to celebrate my birthday. We fixed some fun foods: popped popcorn in the popper :), I had made homemade potato chips with sea salt, some cheese and crackers and cashews... some of their favorites! We put down a picnic blanket and watched "The Great Muppet Caper." It was so nice having this time with them! I can't wait for the Mr. to come home and join in game night!
