barbara has had a bit of free time lately, and has been kind enough to spend it with her sister diana and i! recently she came over and we spent the night staying up way too late playing board games. we had an awesome time playing one of my favorites: monopoly! a couple years ago my parents got me the grand rapids edition of the game, but ive never been able to con anyone... er, um... i mean i've never been able to encourage anyone enough to play it with me- till now! it was really fun seeing all the grand rapids companies represented through out the board. the game pieces are even grand rapids stuff- i got to be the calder! it was super nerdy, but a ton of fun!
