Modern-Day Beach Blanket Bingo: London and Maddie Play Disney Bingo at the Beach!

Back around the Fourth of July, Lynette and Tom and their twins came to visit us at our beach house in Bay Head, and complimented me (Mother of the Year, Mother of the Year) on how London and Maddie are too busy -- playing in the waves, painting seashells and selling them for 25 cents each (they hit their $125 target before the end of July and the Kit Kittredge treehouse, some assembly required, is hosting club meetings in our family room), and having wholesome outdoor family fun -- to waste their time watching TV at the beach. What Lynette doesn't know (and let's keep her in the dark while I do a little superior dance) is that, thanks to my ongoing battles with the Comcastic cable people down here, we don't have TV at the beach!

So London and Maddie are counting on our digital video recorder back in the Roxiticus Valley to record all of the new episodes of Hannah Montana, Suite Life of Zack & Cody, and other Disney Channel favorites...I think we might even be missing the premiere of the third Cheetah Girls movie. Meanwhile, Rex trekked in to our New York City office for a client meeting earlier this week, and Brent slipped a package for me from IZEA into Rex's briefcase. When Rex arrived home, London and Maddie were delighted to discover....Disney Bingo!

They quickly unpacked the box, popped the interactive family-friendly game DVD from ScreenLife Games into our TV, and looked forward to a visit from all their favorite animated Disney characters...Belle, Ariel, Cinderella, and all the Disney princesses, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (Rex's favorite dwarf is SmartyPants)...even Cruella DeVille! Rex and I thought we'd grab some quality adult time on our porch while the girls tested out the game, but that turned out to be a mistake.

Squeals of delight quickly turned to cries of "Mooooooooooommmmmmmmy!" as Maddie apparently broke the rules by changing Bingo patterns mid-game and London called her on it. Instead of relaxing on our porch with a bottle of wine, Rex and I should have remembered the importance of spending quality time with the entire family and achieved family harmony through Disney Bingo instead of letting it come to blows. Anyway, despite the "incident," when I later "interviewed" London and Maddie about their Disney Bingo experience, they both gave it a rave. Naturally, London liked it best when she won, and Maddie liked seeing all of her favorite animated Disney characters on the screen....both girls would like to put in a request to ScreenLife Games for a "live" character version of Disney Bingo that features Hannah Montana, Zack and Cody, the Cheetah Girls, the Jonas Brothers, and the gang from High School Musical.

We've got a big week coming up at the beach, with another visit from Lynette and Tom and the twins, as well as Susan and Mike and their daughter. London and Maddie will be able to play Disney Bingo with all their friends, and if they enjoy it as much as my girls do, I'll know where to do my Christmas shopping...I can just go online to Amazon.com or Drugstore.com and stock up on Disney Bingo games!

Cool. Disney usually comes up with some pretty fun games. I used to play that computer game "The D Show" a few years ago, and that was a lot of fun. Very interactive. Have you ever played that one?
