Welcome to another month of a project I am participating in with some fantastic and inspiring photographers. On the tenth of each month, all of us will blog 10 pictures taken over the course of a day .
We enjoyed a family game night in the lull between Thanksgiving and busting out the Advent Calendar. Once upon a time, in my Single Girl days, I lived in the metropolitan Washington DC area, and when I was moving away, was given a DC-themed Monopoly set to remember the town by. After our recent move, the kids unearthed the board game and immediately became obsessed with it, and demanded that we have ourselves a little family game night and play some DC Monopoly. There were some temper tantrums when people landed on the White House (this version’s Boardwalk), but for the most part, we had a fun time. Here’s my 10 on 10: ten moments from that night.
It is rather outdated, as the Monopoly money is imprinted with a DC-area bank that is no more (well, it merged with another bank in 2005), one of the properties is US Air Arena (which was renamed in 1996 and demolished in 2002), and you can own the former Washington Bullets basketball team (they changed their name to the Wizards in 1995). But it never fails to tickle me when I build hotels on the Lincoln Memorial or charge rent on the Pentagon.
