We had a few rainy days last week so in between sorting my house and trips to the tip the boys and I got out some board games.
I am not a fan of games. That was Stig's department - however, needs must!
We started with Tae's all time favourite 'Tumblin' Monkeys'. It is the modern day version of a game I did actually like as a child called 'Kaplunk'.
We have had this game for many years, Tae inherited from Tim. We initially began playing this with him a few years ago to try to introduce him to game playing and taking turns.
Tim was and still is very patient with him.
The only problem we now have is that when he was little he loved the monkeys falling. Obviously we changed the rules to make it the most fun and the winner is the one who drops the most monkeys!! Can't really be a rule changer now.
They had fun playing that for a while.
We then moved onto a classic - Monopoly.
I played with Tae against Tim. Obviously Tae chose the airplane as our symbol. He was in charge of the die throwing, moving the counter and looking after all the property I bought;)
Tim took control of running the game and relished being the banker (just like his father;)
