Hop On Board The Train Is Coming
Yesterday my sister, the adventure girl, and my BIL came over for a day of fun. We had not seen them in 7 months so, understandably, the house was full of excitement about their arrival.

My other sister, Candis, and my mom also stopped by and Dave came home early from work.

We had an all out party people. In the middle of the week. Isnt't summer grand?

My sis and BIL always like to bring a new game for the kids to learn. Yesterday they brought Mexican Train Dominoes. We had never played before and let me tell you it is a lot of fun.

All ages can play and you can have up to eight people playing at one time. If you can count to 12 you can play this game. The kids thought it was so much fun. The family enjoyed having an activity that my 87 year old mom and my 8 year old son could both participate in together. If you are looking for an evening of family fun the Laundry household gives this one a big thumbs up.

Here are some pics of our wild train ride.

Above are my sisters, BIL, and sweet mother all joining in the fun.



Does your family have a favorite game you like to play? If so please leave a comment and let us know what it is.

I am off to enjoy another lazy summer afternoon with my family.

Have I mentioned lately how much I really love summer?

Note: I looked online to find the exact game my sis had brought but couldn't. She said they carry it at Target in a tin for around $10.00. I did find this one that comes in a train shaped tin and makes train sounds that my kids are begging me to buy. We have some birthdays coming up so I am thinking about it. Just thought I would let you know. Enjoy!

Your mom looks amazing for 83! Wow! I'm glad you guys had such a good time! We play Phase 10 sometimes in our family. It's a card game that can literally go on for hours!

I've played that game before, but I think the thing we put in the middle was a homemade thing made of wood. Sounds like everyone had a great time! :)

We love to play Apples to Apples! Everyone in our family can play except our under 5 set. There are junior versions, but our 10 and 12yo have little trouble with the adult version. We are going to either get the expansion pack or the Bible edition, too.
I've heard the train dominos game is a lot of fun. We haven't tried it yet.

I spent many, many summer afternoons (and evenings!) playing Yahtzee with my grandmother when I was growing up. I can't wait till our kids are old enough for real games. Looks like ya'll had a great time!

This sounds like something my son would enjoy. His favorite game right now is a card game called Rat-a-Tat Cat. Really, he enjoys playing just about any game!

I love family games. We used to play Monopoly a lot around here - actually we played a lot of games when I was a child - fond memories of it.

Thank you so much for sharing your family fun night.
