Showing my geek again!

As I mentioned in my birthday post, Gwyneth and I have been playing some computer games that I played as a kid...
Sierra's King's Quest games were mine and my sister Rachel 's favorite computer games as kids! They were the first games we were exposed to after getting our first computer in 1992! We would spend hours exploring these magical worlds, full of fairies, and unicorns, zombies, ghosts, and witches, etc... We would get so engrossed, and even a little spooked at times!
My brother Jacob told me last week that he had found King's Quest 1-3 downloads for free and had proceeded to beat them all within hours! I immediately hopped on the internet and plopped down $20 to download all the Kings Quest games (1-7 anyway.) I was instantly transformed into my former 12 year old self! :o) I was so excited to share these games with Gwyneth! She loves almost all computer games. She plays Age Of Empires a lot, and has a myriad of kid's games. Her and I don't have as much in common as maybe Daddy and her . I find it really difficult to get down to her level and be a kid with her...her Daddy doesn't seem to have as much trouble...I don't have much interest in XBOX, or Gameboy...so this was really fun to share with her.
We are now working through King's Quest VI. (#4 & 6 were my favorites, so we started with those!)

Playing these games made me remember another one of our favorites: The Secret of Monkey Island! I'm looking for a way to download that one! I'll have to ask my computer genius friend John about that!
