Which Came First?

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Just when we thought we were coming to the end of the regatta season, summer rowing is underway and the races will take us all over the map.   The boys have had their fill of hanging out at the boat trailer playing games (sadly on their iPhones and not real board games!) so perhaps they might enjoy a round of Which Came First?  Are you ready to play along?  Which came first, the cabinet…

Which Came First?

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

It goes without saying that with teenage boys in the house, we’re a family of “gamers” – and not just the electronic kind!  Winter weekends mean evenings by the fire playing board games (you name it, we play it!) and one of our favorites is Which Came First?  So in honor of this game and the winter weekends ahead, we’ve come up with a new series…  Which came first?

The vessel…

Porcelain Fruit Bowl

or Vuitton?
