They like to play cards. I don't really get the mechanics of the game but it keeps them relatively quiet for a few minutes.
At one of the 5ks that we did during the summer we were given a coupon for a free pizza at Track Town Pizza. We went on a Saturday night and actually ate in the pizza parlor. It reminded me of when I was a kid and we used to get those Book It prizes from Pizza Hut. We didn't have a lot of money and going out to eat was a big deal. Luckily because of our financial situation in grad school we are able to provide our children with the same kind of magical experience.
Who would use a whole couch when you can scrunch up together in the corner. Movie Night might be my favorite moment of the whole week.
