  1. Wow, it looks like you guys played a ton of games! I think your parents must love you very much to make your birthdays so special. Someday I want to play punch checkers with you!

    1. I even made up two new games with the chess pieces. One was adventure mode like Majestic chess and the other was Monster chess where the bad guys were dragons. We could play those together too Uncle Ben!



  2. Aaron and Andrew,

    Looks like it was an awesome birthday! I want some of the Checkers cake! Have fun playing with all of your new games!

    1. If you come to visit again we could play checkers with cookies. When you jump a piece you get to eat it!

      I also made Browser quest with the chess pieces and that is lots of fun we could play that game too.



  3. What a wonderful day! Full of memories! Glad you had so much fun!
