I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Games: Troll and Dragon and Fairy Tile and Books: UnpluggedIn

We may have been given one or more of the books or other products mentioned below. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Games.: Troll and Dragon  and Fairy Tile

Me: Today I am recommending two games by Iello games.

The first is Troll and Dragon In this game, the object is to collect the most gold and diamonds. This game is for 2 to 5 players ages 7 and up. It is a pretty quick game, and it takes about 20 minutes to play. It is easy to set up and easy to learn and fun to play although it doesn't vary very much from game to game.

The second game I am recommending today is Fairy Tile. In this game, the object is to complete your story. This game is for 2 to 4 players ages 8 and up. It takes about 30 minutes to play. This game is a little more complicated to learn, but once you figure it out, it's really pretty simple. It varies somewhat from game to game but not a whole lot.

Books: Un-Plugged-In

Mom - Today I am recommending Un-Plugged-In by David A. Greis. This is a book about the relationship between an under ambitious would be musician and an overambitious aspiriing actress. It is told in alternating chapters one in which the action takes place in a world before we all became social media obssessed and the other which takes place in a world after. It is fascinating to see how the world of social media affects the interactions and the relationship between these two people and those around them. However, at times neither of the two main characters is all that likeable and if you like a book that wraps up neatly in the end you will be disappointed.  All in all, although the book is worth reading for its very unique and interesting premise, it would be better if the story were better developed and one or more of the characters were a little more likeable. 

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
