How Romantic

On Sunday night (after supper, thankfully!), the power went out in a good chunk of this neck of the woods, thanks to damages caused by the wind storm that had been raging all day.

It stayed off for a couple of hours. Without power, the boys decided to indulge their newest obsession by candlelight.

Candlelight... Conversation... Chess... What more could a guy ask for, really?

(Jason and I were planning to play Cities and Knights of Catan by candlelight after the boys went to bed, but the power came on just as we were tucking them in. Yes, we still played. No, we didn't use candles.)
