SPOONS

We are a family who loves to play games. One of our favorite family games is a card game called spoons. The object is to collect 4 of the same cards in your hand...well, the object is actually to collect a spoon from the spoon pile, but in order to do that, you need 4 of the same card in your hand. Or else you need to watch closely for someone else to get 4 cards and grab a spoon, because as soon as one person grabs a spoon, it's a free-for-all! The last person to grab for a spoon...doesn't get one, because there is one less spoon than players. Makes for a very lively game as people dive for the spoons! We have yet to come to blows over spoon possession, but it could happen.
Our game night at our campsite was a ton of fun. We played in the boys' tent (because it was the biggest). What a blast! I still don't know who won...I think we all did!

We hope you guys are having a wonderful furlough (stitches & all!). We're on furlough for ten more days and then we're back to Mexico. Rest up and God bless!

Great photos! We are a game playing family as well. In fact we are going on vacation with another game playing family in a week and a half. I will be sure to pack extra spoons!!
