Playing cards has got to be the most traditional thing we do with both of our families. Whether its poker, rook, spades, hearts or Uno. When we're with our families, we're usually playing cards. I'm not exactly sure how this all got started, but I'm glad we all have something to do together that doesn't include our cell phones, ipods, computers or blackberries.
I hope that we instill this in our kiddos someday. And teach them to play card games and board games and generally anything that doesn't need batteries to have fun.
