The Duforat Family recently had a spirited and educational game of Yahtzee. Mom, Amanda, won the game. Although Matthew claimed he won, he did come in second. Brother David took 3rd place, and sister Emilie came in 4th but was able to use the game as math practice.
12-year-old Korbett recently received a new game of Uno for Easter and sent out a challenging text message to battle it out for a chance to conquer all. Everyone who was challenged accepted and after a long brutal game, Dad (Chad) came out on top and won it all with a score of 509!
After beating Mother Edna Ramirez at Uno, Kato was joined by sister Kaylene after she awoke from a deep slumber, ready to take on the day.
Kaylene won her first round of Uno against Kato. After that they moved on to play a different game called Pop the Pig. After several rounds, they lost count of who had more wins. In the end, they called it a draw because they had so much fun.

Stepbrothers Elijah Muniz, 7, and Elijah Arriaga, 13, raced against each other on their bikes under the light of a rare pink moon. Eye witnesses reported that the event was a nail-biting race as Muniz held the lead for the majority of the race until the very end where Arriaga suddenly came up from behind to take the win. A rematch will definitely be needed soon.

Victor and Mia of Big Spring competed in a game of Ninja Turtle Feeding. In this Pizza Switcharoo, they tricked the turtles into eating healthy quarantine orange snacks, instead of pizza.
This game required skill and patience as the youngsters waited on the turtles to approach. Turtle Michaelangelo came in 1st with a nibble off of Mia’s orange, but shortly after that the biggest bite came from turtle Donatello, making Victor the overall orange feeding champion.
Turtles Raphael and Leonardo didn’t fall for the food switcharoo!

Friday night, the Laplante family had a pizza competition. Each family member made their own personal pizza and the winner was the old favorite and delicious extra cheesy double pepperoni pizza made by Annabell Laplante. She celebrated her victory with her bestie Alexa via FaceTime.
Tied in a close second were Trinity’s Italian meat & olive pizza and mother Stephanie's Italian supreme.
Travis was quite amused with his choice to live on the wild side by placing a single pineapple in the center of his pizza, which he later picked off.
Abigail made the sauce-less Cyclopes pizza and dad, Nick, ate his mountain of meat before the judges got to it.
Today, we revisit the previous fight of Man vs. Nature!
Last week, Kendal Jones jumped into Round 2 of kite-flying with different techniques and, in almost no time, had his kite in flight. The kite was in the air for almost 30 minutes until his arms got tired from battling Mother Nature’s windy conditions.
