Escape Room, Spinner and Bitter Cold!



Okay, if you haven't tried an Escape Room, you are missing out!  LOL!  We returned to One Way Out for our second ESCAPE last weekend.  SOOOO much fun!


There were a few "projects" worked.  I have some hardworking grands on the project business.  LOL!


Totally engrossed in Nintendos.  Totally.


My family always played Spinner when we would get together.  Mom had found Zack a set in an antique store for Christmas and he thought we should begin teaching the next generation.  BUT, as you can see, it is the younger, not the youngest, generation that is most INTENT on winning this old game!


Zack frequently won as a child.  Nothing different today!  He was our WINNER (did he really want to teach the youngsters or just get another win?).  LOL!


Here we have a good student to the game!  Alex ended up a close third behind his Uncle and his Momma.  I'm thinking he will follow in their footsteps of being fiercely competitive! [And, as since he was a toddler, he was surrounded by a VERY organized troop of his current favorite toys.  ;) ]

Note in the background:  The girls may have BAILED out on the Spinner game to work more "projects".   Their Daddy will have to attempt to pass this game along another time. 


Miss B and I, well... we didn't do so well.  LOL!  There was a LOT of exposing our hand before she bailed out on me toward the end.  I'm just sayin'.


So, then, there's this...


We've broken the record.  Low in 1957 was 11F.  But... if we can just make it to the weekend...

I'm not gonna lie... I am not a fan of this kind of cold.  I feel so bad for the animals and birds.... myself.  Ha!

But, I'm hanging in there till this passes...  Like so many things in life, if you can just hang on... it will pass.

All across the country folks are experiencing bitter cold.  I pray there is warmth and safety for all.  I pray for those without homes to find shelter.  Lord, be with us.  Thank you, Father.

I could get into an escape room sounds like fun - looks like you all had a fun time and with that bitter cold you can wear lots and lots of knits!!

Looks like dominoes were in vogue this past weekend. Steve's step-brother and his wife came to dinner and then we played Mexican Train dominoes.

I'm so glad to see "game time" being passed on to the next generation. Good family fun!

I've always wondered what would happen if one didn't find their way out of those rooms--namely, me!! Love the photos of the family enjoying games together.

Best,
Bonnie

Lots of fun photos, Tanna. Glad to see "real" games rather than everyone on their phones.

WHAT . . . 10 degrees in Texas . . .
And snow too . . .
(I did hear about the cold snap in Texas, Mister Irish clued me in!)
Looks like fun family times . . .
I grew up with board games, cards and such . . . love those memories . . .
My new fun game is Bannagrams . . .

Have never heard of Spinner but have played a couple of different domino games taught by family and friends and we always have loads of fun, though once I leave, I never remember how to play. :) Now I play all sorts of new games every Thursday at the pediatric playroom where i volunteer. My mom left OH to get away from snow and twice this winter they've had snow in Mississippi. Go figure!

I've never thought i'd like an escape room, but with all the family it looks like a fun time! And your game playing. We play the train dominoes a lot but should look up your game for a change. It's nice to have the grands getting old enough to enjoy games with adults. Ours love to play. As far as the cold, at least we know it won't stay around too long, but this winter it has more than I remember down here. I actually have loved the cold for more than just a day.

Cheers!

Tanya Breese said...

fun family times! we love to play games too, not nick though, he just sits in the other room and watches tv and will give input on occasion haha...we haven't been to an escape room yet but want to!

Lisa said...

It looks like you all had a great time together playing games. I love game nights they are so fun! It has been a colder winter that's for sure! Here in Toronto it was actually -26 one day and way too cold to go outside and some days felt like -30. I am glad that has passed for now because I worried about being outside for even 15 minutes walking at that point.

Your family time looks like so much fun. It has been chilly here, three mornings in a row under freezing. We are warming up a bit today. Stay warm my friend.

Looks like a lot of fun with the family! Your Spinners game looks a lot like the Mexican Train game we play. Love that game and haven't played it in awhile. Have a nice weekend! xx Cheryl

Tanna, 10 is brutal! Our lowest was 19 and that was COLD! But, looks like having your family and playing games made for a good time.
