For the first time in about three years of conventions, we enjoyed some gaming time as a family. Sort of. Well, the three of us who came on this trip got to play together.
We always bring our Nintendo 3DS’s on road trips. All of us own our own 3DS. Each of my children saved up to buy their own. (It was a good lesson for them to learn how to save money and budget for big ticket items.) At the conventions, we will sit behind our table for a bit of quiet time and do “Streetpasses”. Or play a solo game of some sort. We all love playing some videogames. This weekend my wife, son and I did something a bit different. We never took our devices to the show.
Instead, at the end of each day, we spent time playing Mario Kart 7 against each other. It was a blast. I hadn’t really played this version, although some of the races are similar to other Nintendo versions. The best part was that we were pretty evenly matched. And the smack talk is always fun.
Being entertained is what life is all about. Taking a break for a bit of fun on our trips is great.
