Tonight was a lovely evening outside.
The Sewing Bee went out to dinner with us and when we came back to Sweet Bee Cottage we decided to play a little Yahtzee! Such a fun game for Baby Bee and it really helps her adding skills.
My Yahtzee game was originally my parents. They were married in 1960 and the game instructions say it's from 1961. Pretty vintage, don't you think? Apparently the game was invented by a wealthy Canadian couple to play on their yacht. Thanks Canada!
Can you see how yellowed the scorepads are? As I was handing them out to everyone I found old scorepads from my childhood.
One said Kari on it. I haven't seen Kari since the 8th grade. Another said Stephanie on it and I can't even remember the last time I saw Stephanie. Fun to see how my handwriting has changed over the years - from printing to just learning cursive to my signature today.
While we were outside playing the game we had some yummy chocolate ice cream and some tasty Trader Joe's Joe-Joes. (Joe-Joes are just like Oreos only better!)
What games have you enjoyed all your life?
Do you ever play games outside? I highly recommend it. It was just a lovely and pleasant summer evening.
Well come on out and enjoy Suzanne's Colorado Lady Vintage Thingie Thursday.
I'm sure you'll find many fun vintage finds.
Thanks so much for coming by! And don't worry there's still plenty of ice cream left for you although the Joe-Joes are going pretty fast.
