ThinkFun provided me with product to test in the hopes I would share with my readers. All opinions are my own. Ellie has been asking for some "just the two of us time" lately.

So, I have been trying my best to find some activities we can do together in the few moments we do have "alone". Ellie's favorite thing to do with me right now? Board games!
