Ben has been a game freak lately, so I found the version of Risk in the house and showed him how to play. With a little help, he quickly took over Europe and Australia. He understood the concept of the game well enough, and though I did control Africa and South America, I did not play as cutthroat as I would if I was playing my father. Ben had fun, but the game went long and he got bored, so Michael took over and won the game, starting a turn with 42 armies and sweeping through South America, Africa and southern Asia. We all enjoyed the game, and I have even more incentive to find my old Risk that I can't find in my house.
For dinner, we met my friend (and Ben's godfather) Mike for dinner at the SuperDawg in Wheeling. Yummy, and now I just need to get a Taco Burrito King burrito and a stuffed pizza to satisfy my Chicago food cravings. My dad is already talking about making pancakes again tomorrow morning. I hope Michael let's me sleep.
We visit the friendly confines on Day 73.
