Snakes and Ladders

How long since you have played snakes and ladders??? For me it is a long time but as grandie No 1 is now 15 months I guess it won't be long and it will all start again(I can't wait!!).
While away on my cousin's weekend last weekend one of the girls presented us all with a book (160 pages!!) of our family history. It contains a photo of every person in our family from my grandparents on. It truly is amazing and something I will treasure forever. As well as that she decided to make us a game.....

It is a game of snakes and ladders with 4 snakes and 4 ladders all representing each of the cousins. Mine is fairly easy to pick with 3 shoes, lipstick, quilting memorabilia and school stickers all on the ladder.

She had spent hours gathering together all the little bits and pieces for each person.

This cousin is a tennis player, a footy fan, a gardener and enjoys a cup of tea!

This ladder is for my sister who has the coffee shop, garden centre, is a footy fan and bakes cakes for the shop.

My cousin who 'owns' this snake works in aged care (hence the wheel chair and gloves), likes gardening and has been lucky enough to regularly go on a cruise.

As you can imagine we had many laughs while we played this game - especially after a couple of glasses of wine!! I am trying to think up a fun game for next years trip.

Have a lovely weekend...
