After a full family favorite dinner, a spontaneous game of hide and go seek broke out in our little red house. I realized that playing this game now is 100 times more fun than it EVER was as a child. Jason and I didn't play this time. He did some work on the computer and I was busy in the kitchen cleaning up the mass dinner mess. Plus, we had the best seats in the house.....
Its hard to find the words to describe this game that was played with 5 kids ranging in age from 11 to 1 1/2. Someone was appointed the "counter" and then 8 little feet puttered away to find their treasured hiding spot.
The infamous "ready or not... here I come..." was shouted out. Now, at this point, you all probably have remembered hearing SILENCE!!! Not even daring to breathe in fear you would be found out. Well, do you think that happens here??? Not a chance. From all over the house you hear giggles, shouts and little people jumping out in front of the "counter" yelling... "HERE I AMMMMMMM..."
Or in Abby's case, she was pointing to everyone else's hiding spot and surprisingly yelled "Aqui Aqui..."
No, im totally serious! Hubby and I really strained ourselves to hear her little voice shouting spanish throughout our home. After we were done pee-ing ourselves from laughing so hard we figured watching Diego must actually be a childs version of The Rosetta Stone?? Who knows.
We had a great time watching our offspring make new versions of an old favorite.
The game ended just as fast as it started and was quickly taken over by Molly "swimming " thru the house in her new bathing suit. She "dived" off the tables and daintily danced the pool dance.
Ahhh never a dull moment in my home and I would not have it any other way!
