Parents Night Out

For those of you who have small children or even older children know...... you do not get to go out much ..........that is until they go to college and/or leave the "nest". The MD house is no EXCEPTION. We rarely go out of the house without the kids in tow, and even then it is to another house with children. We have found creative ways to have our "adult" fun....we have found cards and dominoes....When we play cards it is anything from different types of poker games, Texas Hold 'em, to Hand & Foot, Up & Down the River, and such. But no matter what you play it must .....
include some alcohol.........
and must include food.............
Then we start

We played "Mexican Train" now someone please explain to me the name. I understand the train part but where do we get the Mexican part?

This does not take a Rocket Scientist to figure out, you just match number of dots to number of dots, and build long lines called trains......
This I have been told is best played while drinking, and for those of you that do not drink (as I do not) you can take advantage of those that are.

You keep building your train until you are out of pieces then you win! And get gloating rights.....


And the rest of us have to just sit there and watch you gloat, that is until you spill you drink all over the floor as RD did. Note to self....if you are going to gloat do not trough your arms in the air very fast.

Just thought I'd stop by to say "hello" to a fellow Mom that lives in Dardenne Prairie, MO.
I've just begun a new blog that, right now, mostly consists of jokes and silliness. However, I plan to actually start writing in the very near future.
Please feel free to stop by anytime!
Have a great Tuesday!
