While we weren’t chosen from the audience to participate on-stage, it was the first time my girls were introduced to larger than life games, like Yahtzee Bowling, Connect 4, Monopoly and more. I loved watching their faces light up and cheering for the contestants.
They finally decided on ‘Chutes and Ladders’ – with Dad leading the way, they were battling it out to see who could climb to the top first – with the ladders and slides positioned just right, it took some time to declare a winner and I was secretly excited that we were practicing counting during the game. They were learning and they didn’t even know it!
The big hit of our game night was Yahtzee. I’m not sure if the girls loved rolling the dice or yelling “Booyah!” each time it was their turn to roll, but it was hysterical.
When we wrapped up the fun games, Maggie mentioned that this was good practice for us before we go on another cruise. She’s keeping her fingers crossed that we get picked for Yahtzee Bowling next time. And I’m not going to lie – I am too!
