Curiosity has gotten the best of me. After yet another weekend has just flown on by, I wonder. How does your family spend their weekends?
Since my husband typically works Monday-Saturday we don’t often venture too far from home. In fact a typical weekend for us consists of movies and video games. We would all like to spend a little more time outdoors, but the heat has been killer this year. Within 5 minutes of heading out the complaints begin in regards to the bugs and just being too hot! So for us games and movies it is, at least for another few months until the temps drop just slightly, ugh.

I don’t really mind though. I was brought up on video games, so I figured it was only natural for my kids to enjoy them just as much. My only issue is I want to play too! With the release of games like Call Of Duty and Halo which over run our T.V and have my husband an kids immersed in hours of game play, I have to ask “What about Mom?” Not since the age of Golden Eye for Super NES have first person shooting games been my thing – basically because I am down right horrible at them! I would much rather sit down to play a RPG game, but it's hard to incorporate family play time into a game like Assassins Creed. I can however talk them into a game of Mario Kart once in a while! But the fun is short lived, they would much rather be battling Zombies together, without Mom!
Maybe while they are at school and the hubby is at work, I should brush up on my first person shooting skills or at least search out some multi player games I stand a fighting chance in. Getting old stinks! I use to be good in whatever game I played, now the kids leave me in the dust.
What does your family do for a little indoor fun?
