Auf die Schätze, fertig, los!

Even with Papa away I got a specific request for the “game with a giraffe and crocodile and zebra”. It’s too early yet for the rules, but Papa would have been VERY proud of both boys on this one.


Getting some skills

If you look at the picture on the card by Eoins left hand, it’s exactly the pattern Conor made. I love this game for how it makes you think so much. Conor also figured out the card for ordering the animals by numbers and pictures much better this time.

Papa has definitely raised a pair of gamers!

While Papa was away, these arrived…

Conor has been asking to open them all week…

Papa came home last night, so it was time to see what they contained. Before you ask, Yes, I despise packing peanuts. I absolutely loathe them. We have an agreement that Papa cleans up ALL packing peanuts if Conor is allowed to play in them. Here he is, discovering wind resistance.

Lazy Sunday

Papa and Conor lazed in our new LaZBoy recliner…

One of the most comfortable things ever

Mama made pancakes…

I'm a big boy!

Karen caught Conor and me heading out to the playground in our new mode of transportation and took a photo for us.

Great going there, but it's all uphill on the way back!

Papa stayed home and played a train game with a new gaming friend. Super Sunday all around.


The games fit in our new cabinets! There’s barely an inch of space for any more games, but that’s a Tetris game for another day!

And to the left

The house is really improved with the changes. The basement is benefiting from one set of the old shelves taking back some floor space, and the recycling tubs have gone on the other set of shelves in the garage. More space all around!

W has a lot of games…

Yes, I have played quite a lot of these

I decided to use Conor’s nap time to ferry W’s games down the stairs for him, since I saw no other way he could do it while keeping an eye on Conor when I’m at knitting this evening. I think it took not quite an hour!

They're all really good...

You know, I kind of scoffed when W questioned whether we might need three Liatorp cabinets… At this point I would not be surprised if we go back to Ikea some time soon for that third one…
