We recently went on a trip with Scott's side of the family...there are 25 of us in all. Jack, of course, brought Candyland because there were lots and lots of potential players.
I wanted to get a picture of all the games that happened but, sadly, I couldn't. Here are just a few of the match-ups:

Shortly after that trip, Jack and Scott had a special day out. They first stopped at a store to buy checkers before heading to the pier to play a couple games, have lunch and ride some rides. Checkers is now Jack's game of choice.
This past weekend, we went to my parents' house. Though there are certainly not as many potential competitors, Jack did manage to get in games with me, Scott, Nana and Granddad...multiple times.

On the last day of our trip, Scott taught Jack tic-tac-toe. He played it for several hours on the way home in the car with either Scott or I. Let's just say that it was a long, long drive...
I have to admit that I don't like playing games. I never have. So it seems strange to me that my oldest would love it so. But he does... And because of that I'm (nearly) always up for a game with Jack. And now wondering what the next game on the horizon is...
