Games

We had the Eliazer's over Friday night for dinner, and then played Ticket to Ride. This is our new favorite game that my sister and brother-in-law introduced to us. We were pretty competitive that night, and had some good laughs. Jesse is addicted. 
Here is the game board. "Ticket to Ride is a cross-country train adventure in which players collect and play matching train cards to claim railway routes connecting cities throughout North America. The longer the routes, the more points they earn.
Additional points come to those who can fulfill their Destination Tickets by connecting two distant cities, and to the player who builds the longest continuous railway."
You can even play it on-line! We haven't gotten that addicted yet.
The next day was the Crossroads Volleyball Tournament. There were so many games going on all at one time. We have the tournament to raise money for those going on missions trips this summer. Cybill and Rachel's team (in the picture) actually made it to the finals!
Here is Jesse playing on one of CSUN's teams.
Then our pastor, Rick Holland, played on that team for a round.

Was Jesse the black train? It looks like he might have won the longest route!

Maybe we'll have to buy it so that you can teach us how to play while you are here. Can't wait!
