Our First Ever Family Game Night

Since Nils is leaving tomorrow morning to Amelia Island for divisional finals for Comcast's CommTech Jeopardy competition so we enjoyed our very first family game night playing Shaylee's new Candy Land board game. She got to chose what playing piece to be and decided on blue because she "is the best" and then proceeded to assign Nils' and my playing pieces. Nils was green and I was red. The game started off rocky, trying to explain to Shaylee that we needed to take turns, but got rolling once we kept it moving. She was quick to help us determine which color our chosen card instructed to move our piece on the board although the concept of only moving one or two of those color squares depending on our card, was a bit confusing for her. If she had it her way, her playing piece would just skate all over the board, LOL. It ended with Shaylee being the winner (and that was without even purposely allowing her to either!)Our patience was tested in the beginning (Shaylee could win, hands down, at any pouting competition) but in the end we had a good time being together as a family.
