It's an understatement to say that Gwen and Maddy got lots of toys for Christmas last year. In fact, we still have some we've never opened for various reasons (too many toys, not old enough for the toy, toy is too messy, etc). This week we finally opened the Tag Tails game and we've been having so much fun with it!
Tag Tails is an improvement on the old childhood game of Tag. Each child straps on a belt and a replica of an animal tail plugs into a slot in the back. Then you RUN like the wind (my camera couldn't even stop the action!) and try to grab someone else's tail while protecting your own. A few months ago, I'm not sure the kids would have been emotionally mature enough to deal with this game but they seem to accept that having someone take your tail away is all in good fun.
We have another game we're eager to try out but it didn't come with batteries so we'll have to save it for another day.
Today, we're playing hooky from preschool and going to Gilroy Gardens. We never get tired of that place! It's cheap (free after you purchase admission for one day) and it's usually never crowded and it's sooo beautiful! The trees.... the flowers... Ah! Oh yeah, and the kids like it too. :)
