No, it's not a video game. Although, that IS what I found my oldest (Josh) and youngest (Nick) Grandsons doing when I went into town to spend some time with them this morning.
After running to the door to greet me with hugs and kisses,
they ran right back into Josh's bedroom to resume their game. Middle brother, Matt, was in the family room, watching T.V.
The boys were
Take after their Grandma.
After a sprited board game, we finally ventured outside and Josh and Nick decided to ride their bikes, while Matt prepared to roller blade ~
Nick, was particularly thrilled at the prospect.
I borrowed my daughter's bike and we were off.
Of course, I made sure the boys were safely attired for the trip...
I even insisted that Josh wear his LIFE JACKET ~ one never knows when one might encounter a deep puddle on the way to the park! (Josh is SUCH a good sport!) Don't worry ~ Josh knows his Grandma is a kidder and he took it off before we actually left for the park...
The boys taught me how to play "Monkey Tag".
The person who's "It" has to close their eyes tightly ~ and keep them closed the whole time. They count to 15 and then have to find the other players, somewhere on the playground equipment ~ without ever opening their eyes!
Let me tell you, it's scary keeping your eyes closed as you feel your way around on that equipment! Every once in a while, the "It" person (Monkey???) yells "LAND". If anyone is touching the ground (running from one piece of the equipment to another), they are caught ~ and therefor, "It". I got caught twice by being on the ground ~ running from the slide to the steps or the ladder to the tunnel.
I can't remember the last time that I had so much fun. (Probably Italy with La Mia Bella Bambina!)
Thank you Josh and Matt and Nick for a GREAT morning!
