Sunday Afternoon Pandemic…These Guys Have Got Your Back.
Post contains affiliate links.
Our Sunday afternoon adventures have been a huge hit with our kids. Two weeks ago we grabbed our essential supplies (sub sandwiches, chips, fruit, and coffee) and headed out to Lynden City Park.
It was a chilly afternoon, to be sure, but the sun graced us with its presence here and there.
Now that our kids are firmly in the Big Kid Camp, I’ve gone from watching them be pummelled by obnoxious Big Kids to having a friendly chat before we release them to remind them that they were once the toddlers and preschoolers who couldn’t play because of Big Kids commandeering the play equipment and reminding them to be gracious.
Who looks this cute just hanging out at the park???
Apollo enjoyed practicing his Ultimate Beast Master Skills. His shirt is from Primary, by the way, hands down my favorite kid’s clothing company.
Last Sunday as we were getting ready for church (and discussing our Sunday afternoon adventure options) I got a message from Greg inviting us over for lunch after church.
And for the record, “lunch” with Greg and Merriann almost always means “lunch and dinner”. That is how long we hang out when we get together…
Kalina and Tucker had gone out to lunch with my parents after church so they had already eaten by the time we got to Greg and Merriann’s (which, now that I look at this photo, makes me wonder why Tucker is sitting there with a plate full of food…) Anyway, Kalina stood at the end of the table and jokingly referred to herself as the lunch supervisor to which Hezekiah replied,
“Hey, that’s super-vi-sation without representation!”
That kid’s got a sharp mind and amazing sense of humor.
After lunch, it was time for Pandemic to ensue.
Don’t let Chuck’s gentle, Canadian, smile fool you for a moment…
This is what the team looked like five minutes later when the Pandemic began. Contagious diseases were spreading across the planet and these people were determined to save us all.
The board game, Pandemic, is a group game that’s played in teams. While each member has their own role, you are working together to beat the pandemic, not competing against each other. This makes the game ideal for families and groups. This meant Apollo could play (with a partner) on equal footing with everyone else.
I regret to inform mankind that we all died.
