We did end up having fun though. We played charades, a tag game, what are you doing game, I'm thinking of ... and a M&M question game. After about one hour the power came back on. It was a happy day. It was so funny my ten year old was so excited because she could finally get back to watching her show. When the power came back on she said, "That took forever". It gave me a chuckle.
Having the power out reminded me of being little when the power would go out. I always loved it because that was the only time my parents would ever play a game with me. I was the only one left at home so I got all the attention during power outages. It was fun for me. Makes me think we should have our own power outage at least once a month. Pretty sad that having the power go out gets us to play games. I need to make this happen more for my little family.
Have a great weekend!!
