  5. I loved this post. Love the yahtzee playing picture. Teaching our kids that this kind of simple pleasure (time with family, board games) are more quality than computer and tv. Cake looked delicious by the way! stopping by from the simple pleasures link up from Arizona, USA. please stop by and say hello!

  6. Barb, this made me feel cozy and warm. What a sweet post.

  7. What a great family weekend. Definitely one of life's simple pleasures.

    Mum looks very interested in whatever you're doing with your yahtzee ;-)
    The cake sounds delicious and Gwen's begonia is very pretty.
    It's nice to see the family together :-)
