A Family that Plays Together, Stays Together

Quality time. What is it? Families eating at the table together, cheering each other on during games, running errands and chatting in the car. My family sits down to eat together several times a week. We don't always get all of us to the table, with work schedules and other commitments, but we do our best. And after supper, we sit down together and watch Jeopardy! One thing we love to play together is Trivia, in any form or fashion. Sometimes we'll get a little punchy after playing for a while, especially when we're playing an all-weekend overnight tournament. And with that in mind, over tired and with apologies to Dr. Seuss, here goes.

You could play baseball or backyard croquet.
You might go biking. Every nice day.
But what if it rains? And what if it snows?
Turn on TV, sit around, blow your nose.
When the sun doesn't shine,
And it's too wet to play.
You might sit in the house, on that cold, cold, wet day.
You might talk to each other. Or dance 'round the room.
Or play the piano and sing a good tune.
And if all that low-tech can't give you a smile,
There's always the Wii, and its Boogie for style.

This post is brought to you in conjunction with Parent Bloggers Network & EA's Wii-Boogie, a family gaming experience. Shake it. Sing it. Create it.
