Today we took a break from being tourists to just rest. (Rest is a relative term here.) The boys rested. Butterfly went to school. Grandpa rested.
Nana and I went shopping.
Well, all of us went shopping first at IKEA. Except for Butterfly who was in school and Juice who was working. Man I love that store. I would buy everything I could in that store if I had money. As it is, I bought meatballs and a stool for the sink in the bathroom downstairs. Big spender!
The boys took a nap and Nana and I went out to the mall. We’re looking for Christmas outfits for the kids. No such luck, though. We are a little early for it. But I start planning out my Christmas now. I even have several presents bought. Does anyone else do that?
After dinner, we took the kids to the park to get their picture taken. And ice cream.
Pretty restful day if you ask me!
PS- Today’s giveaway is all about doing something with your kids while you are NOT going out to be a tourist. Butterfly loves to play games. And this game that Pressman Toys sent me, is just up her ally!
You see, it’s a code breaking game for young kids. In this vertical version of MASTERMIND designed for kids, players secretly stack their animals into a tower. By asking yes or no questions, they try to find the order of the animals. The game can be played at three different levels. You can even mix up the difficulty levels. Juice and Butterfly play this way: Butterfly has 6 animals that Juice needs to find, and Juice has 4 animals that Butterfly needs to find. Both are happy with the level of difficulty. The first player to break the code of his or her opponent wins!

PPS- Just so you know, I was given this game by Pressman Toy for free to review and I get to keep the game at the end of my review period, which I’m really happy about because we play it ALL THE TIME.
