This weekend we were hit with serious rain storms. Stuck inside, we were desperate to find something new and exciting to do. During a break in the clouds, I rushed off to Walmart and picked up the Forza 4 Xbox car racing game and some snacks, including Peanut M&Ms.
We are a gaming family without a doubt. Some people may believe playing video games is isolating; but the way we play, it’s an interactive sport! My boys love the competition, even if the game is too old for them to do well. They often choose sides, between Mom and Dad, and root for us as we “politely” trash talk each other. We are parents, after all!
When I got home, I ripped open the bag of Peanut M&M’s and set them out with drinks. My boys love ’em! I like that they get a treat but also gobble up the good protein of the peanuts, which will help fill them up and keep them satisfied.
The Forza 4 Xbox game was a blast. You won’t believe how realistic these beautiful sports cars are. Check out the screen shot from the game (below). Talk about an unbelievable gaming experience! Xbox is coming out with Forza 5 for the holiday season. Considering what a terrific game Forza 4 is, I have to imagine the Forza 5 game adds that much more to the fun.
