Hide-n-Seek might be one of the best games ever. It has versatility because you can play it anywhere, anytime, at any age.

A few years ago a dear friend of mine sacrificed her Tuesdays and Thursdays so that I could finish my Bachelor's degree: she watched Davis nearly all day long. During that time Davis became good friends (even if they were only wee babes) with her daughter who is about the same age.

Last night we had the chance to swing by their house so that Davis and Sage could play. They watched part of a Scooby-Doo movie, dressed up like super-heroes, and then with ten minutes left until we needed to head home, they started playing Hide-n-Seek.

Sage hid first, and before Davis's eyes were even closed, she was hidden and shouted to him,
"Count to one!!!" The beauty of being young: the fun of hiding, the anticipation of waiting, and the sheer joy of being found!


  1. I have to agree that hide-n-seek is a great game! Shanti's favorite place to hide when my parents were visiting was behind my mom's back - and my mom was the one counting! It was too cute!

  2. That is priceless, I hope you all had a really enjoyable time while they were there!

  3. i love this story of davis and sage...and i can completely picture it happening! so glad that they have each other as friends, even after years of separation. hmm....kind of how i feel about you!!!
