Our family loves board games, and make a time slot to play each week actually. Twister is a hoot, and until you try that you have not lived. But then again, we are a family that walks together, does the park, etc. I watch moms with screaming kids in tow at shopping malls and I have to wonder why? Why would they take kids shopping unless it is to get them shoes maybe? Then they scream at them because they get impatient and misbehave - no logic in today's consumerism. However, while I am rambling, my granddaughter and I LOVE to shop but have our shopping charted out before we go, as to get the maximum coverage out of the time alloted LOL, and we are wicked shoppers!
Those "one-stop" destinations for Saturday fathers really bother me, (you know the ones with pin ball, playrooms, etc.) There is no quality time spent with kids at those destinations at all, and once again the kids occupy themselves with each other, and that is so very sad. My son is a father himself and we still play on our Sunday walks (kidding around stuff), and I wouldn't trade that for anything in the world, except maybe a big rollercoaster ride
