Have you ever played the card game UNO?

Everyone has, right?

I love UNO. It's pretty much the only card game I've ever been able to remember how to play. The few others I've learned don't stick, and some, like euchre, I just can't grasp.

But UNO is easy.

I played UNO a lot with my mom when I was little.

Before I had kids, Hubby and I played hours of UNO in the tent on rainy backpacking trips.

After Logan was born, we'd play it at the picnic table while we were camping and he was napping in the tent.

Then, when I got pregnant with Jordan and put on bed rest with nearly 4 months to go, I taught my 3 1/2-year-old Logan how to play it, and we played it almost every day for the entire time I was sentenced to the couch.

Now when we go camping, Hubby, Logan and I all play UNO together while Jordan naps.

For Christmas, I got Jordan the UNO MOO game so he can start learning the concepts and in another year or so, he'll be playing, too. For now, Logan and I play it and Jordan just steals the pieces.

Anyway, Logan and I just got done playing many games of UNO in a row. He's off school today because some idiot(s?) vandalized most of the school buses in our town. They let the air out of the tires on 50 of the 70-some buses in the yard.

Just thought I'd post this ridiculous post to let you know, if you're not playing UNO, you should. It's fun! :)

Have a great day!

Oh, Mattel, the makers of UNO, don't know me from Eve. They didn't pay me to write this or give me anything free. I just like UNO. And I borrowed the photos from, so go there if you want to buy UNO or UNO MOO. Plus, I love shopping on amazon.
