Video games are not a super huge deal in our household. We have had a Nintendo WII for several years which is used occasionally. The girls prefer to play on my phone or iPad if given the chance. When my youngest asked several weeks ago if we could get the Disney Infinity game I spent some time searching it on the internet. It looked like a rather interesting game so I placed a pre-order to get the best deal. The game arrived on Friday and I have to admit that the entire family is fully addicted. We each have favorite characters already and it is the first thing the girls want to do when they wake up. It has been very helpful in getting things done around the house. The rule is no play until the chores are complete!
The weather over the weekend was just beautiful here. I felt guilty that we all sat in the house on Saturday playing video games. By Sunday Frank and I agreed that we needed to make up for that decision so the family took a road trip to Bushkill Falls. It was a perfect day for a hike. The girls loved it as did we. It was a wonderful, peaceful family day out. We arrived early and beat the crowds. For most of our time out on the trails we were alone occasionally running into a couple here or there. We hiked the longest trail and had a wonderful day. It was one of those days where everything slows down and helps you to remember what is really important in life.
After the falls we stopped at the store-bought some steaks, went home tossed them on the grill and had a great dinner. After diner, well like I said, we are all a bit addicted so back to the Infinity we went.
I would say it was about as good a day as a family can get!
