Settlers of Catan
I love this picture, which was totally posed! Heather and Blair are dear friends of ours here in Las Vegas as well as our Catan buddies. Ever since Ted and I learned how to play the game our families have gotten together for regular Catan matches. Sunday afternoon was possibly our last time to do this (wah!), and we had a blast. I actually won the first game, and Blair won the second game. I'm quite amazed we had time to play two games, between all the hopping we did with the kiddos! We have 8 kids between our two families, and it seems someone always needs something or is getting into trouble, LOL. But what I love about this picture is that it's a fairly typical scenario...Blair has a gazillion cards and is taking forever to finish his turn! Riley, their oldest boy, took the picture for us, and after a few tries came up with this shot, which I think is brilliant. We will always remember our fun times playing together and will miss them terribly when we move. One slight consolation is that they are also potentially moving to Reno, so we would have had to say goodbye anyway!
