Family game night

Charlotte ran toward me when I arrived at the after-school program at 5 o'clock on Friday before our long holiday weekend...

"Family game night??" she asked.

I just wanted to get home. But I wanted this to be a nice weekend...

the weekend we celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday...

and summer seems close at hand.

"Oh...OK." and then I smiled down at her.  I hoped she thought it was sincere.

When we walked in the door at home...

we almost ran out.

There was a man in the kitchen...



and he was cooking.

But he made the most delicious, rustic pancetta and onion pasta with fresh mozzarella...




so we let him stay.  But he had to play Monopoly...

the game that never ENDS.



I wondered how long it would take for someone to get upset...

because someone ALWAYS does.



The first was Charlotte...



she ran upstairs when Kevin asked her to please be the sunglasses instead of the soccer ball that kept rolling off the table.

Her feelings were hurt and for some reason she was also extremely determined to BE the soccer ball.

Then Court was upset that we (him & I) weren't winning...





and he left the room.

So we kept playing...



and he eventually came back. 

I'll post Kevin's awesome pasta recipe this week...
