Settlers

My favorite game of all time is the Settlers of Catan. My mom gave me this game a few years ago, and I can easily say I am addicted. In Boise we had some friends that liked to play it with us, so we played it frequently. However, I am sad to say that my affair with Settler has come to a screeching halt since we moved to Texas. Luckily there's one couple that likes to play it; Joe's cousin Catherine and her husband. Catherine and Matt & family visited us yesterday and stayed to hang out today. We had a wonderful enchilada dinner that Catherine made, and then the kids had a fun time on their tractor rides. A little later in the evening Joe's parents came over for some Father's day dessert, and after everything calmed down we sat down to a game of Settlers. We even played the expansion pack! That is a truly rare treat for me. Matt was the grand winner. Today we had a blast in the pool. I was going to take some pictures, and then totally forgot. Next time I guess.

I love that game too! My husband doesn't really like it, though, bummer.

We love it too. But we haven't had a chance to play recently. Richard's brother's love it, so we used to play with them - but the one brother who remains in the area has a wife who doesn't care for the game. So no Settler's around here. *sigh*

Sound like a fun day with Cat and Matt.

I have never heard of that game, but we are a game loving family (okay so my siblings, not so much my husband!) so we will have to check it out!

It was definitely not "Jessica Day" , because if there were a day like that, I wouldn't spend 3 hours in the kitchen preparing and cleaning up dinner. Also, I wouldn't take care of putting all the kids in bed, and serve lunch to my husband. It was definitely "Father's Day"

We love settlers, too. Our newest addiction is hunters and gatherers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carcassonne:_Hunters_and_Gatherers
