I think it was playing Balderdash. We had ages ranging from 8 -80. The laughter was loud, in fact my sides ached the next day from laughing so much.
I had just gotten divorced and returned to see my family. They didn't judge me, we just got on with things and enjoyed being a family. It is great to be with people who know you and are always welcoming and supportive.
In our family, conversations take place over a game board of one type or another. They have for as long as I can remember and this has carried on with my grown children as well.
