When was the last time you played Hangman?!

When was the last time you played Hangman?!

Yesterday, I wrote about a 12-hour power outage we experienced here in southern Utah. All schools were closed due to the Martin Luther King holiday and I planned to spend the day at home with my sons...and then the power went out...

How do you entertain 2 teens without televison, x-box, internet service?! I was at a loss for ideas when my youngest son suggested Hangman!

Needless, to say, we spent the afternoon playing Hangman. I had forgotten how much fun it was and I loved the time I was able to spend with my boys.

This, to me was the perfect way to wait out the power outage, hearing them laugh and watching them come up with some creative words! I had time to reflect on how lucky and blessed I truly am to have such a great family.

Was the word in your blog's picture "BONDS"?

Becasue that's what you were solidifying when you played this game together as a family.

Wanda - Last time was when I had no money to entertain myself!  I have to say that it's amazing how much we forget as adults and how chiuldren can help us enjoy the simpler things in life!

Craig, That sounds great! I enjoyed them so much so maybe the power outage happened for a reason!?

Gary, I always try to find time to spend time with my boys...they are growing quickly into young adults and want to continue to let them know they are still most important!

Nevin, My boys are still teaching me to take it easy and to lighten up a bit! I do get wound tight at times! It really was fun to slow down, even for a day!

When a storm hits our area we always have an oil lamp and board game on the kitchen table just in case the power goes out. There is nothing like spending time with the family by the light of a lamp and playing the games I grew up on.

Shoshana, I love puzzle games and this does stretch the imagination!

Gabe, Those are fun games too!

Todd, Playing board games takes us back to a simpler time and creates family time!

See Wanda... this is what we need to get back to don't we?  The tech gadgets are stealing precious bonding!  Families should have non-tech days once a week.... just so we can discover REAL treasure!
