Playing With PicMonkey

Oh My! I found a new toy! Thank you Carrie from http://www.carrieelle.com/ for suggesting PicMonkey in your article.  http://www.carrieelle.com/ways-to-improve-photos/

I really love this app. There are so many ideas running through my mind of what I can do with PicMonkey. I have decided to try their 7-day trial but I’m sure I’ll end up subscribing for their Royale Package. Here are just 2 pictures I took tonight while visiting our local community garden. I love the extra textures you can give your pictures using PicMonkey.

4 Amazing Family Games

One of the things our family likes to do to pass time is playing table games. Our youngest son’s favorite is Apples to Apples. He’s 11 so sometimes he’ll question a card or two but other than that it’s a hoot to play. Our boys can get pretty obnoxious and then it’s all giggles and farts till the game is over.

We also love playing Qwirkle, Spot It, and Blokus.
Qwirkle and Blokus takes a little more seriousness to play because it’s all about strategy. These two games are great. We are much more laid back when we play these games and they allow opportunities to communicate with the kids on a deeper level.

Spot It is fun and exciting to play. There are several games you can play with the Spot It cards and it can become very action packed. Our boys get so excited and sometimes a card will end up flying here and there. This one makes a great gift for families with children.

We absolutely love that we can sit down, be silly and interact in a positive way. This should be very important in every family. Sometimes there is just so much going on that it gets to be a stress fest. So whether your family’s fun time is going out to the park, camping, shooting hoops, throwing a football, or just playing a card or board game, you are doing something super positive for your family.

Our children grow so quickly. Enjoy every minute that you can with yours.

What is your family’s favorite fun-time activity? Do you have a board or card game that your family loves playing together?
