While on vacation, we've been enjoying playing board games at night. Some friends came to visit and introduced us to Bananagrams. It has quickly become a new family favorite. It is very similar to Scrabble, but without a game board and it moves along quickly. It's a great after dinner game and my 6 year old has even been using the letter tiles to work on her spelling during the day. But, I couldn't resist sharing these pictures of our second favorite game this summer-good old fashioned checkers.
We discovered this homemade checkerboard painted on
the outdoor picnic table and it has kept us busy.
So simple and charming.
