It’s been pretty damn hot around these parts during the last week or so. We spent most of the weekend at The Surfer’s place. It was the last week of school holidays and I took Thursday and Friday off after the public holiday for Australia Day on Wednesday.
I took the photo above after we’d been for a walk on the beach. Incase you didn’t notice the Male toilet sign it’s there in the top left corner. I liked the artwork on the building’s wall, and that’s my shadow too.
As it was hot and we’d been to the beach early we setup the Monopoly board and had an epic game in three sittings. Silly JJ didn’t want to join in so he had to find something to do that didn’t involve anything electronic. Sometimes the kids just spend too much time on the Xbox, DS, computer etc. You get the picture.
I didn’t land on anything very good real-estate wise in Monopoly but I was second out of the game. Towards the end I never quite know how it works trying to sell off properties either to other players or the bank so we probably broke some of the rules.
I’d like to know what board games people play that can involve the whole family. Perhaps ones that can be played in a shorter time frame than a full Monopoly game.
