Let the Games Begin
Summer means lots of getting together with family and friends outside. There’s the grilling and the drinking but what about the extra fun?
If you are lucky enough to have a pool the games are endless. They make all kinds of water polo equipment, diving for whatever fun stuff and just playing Marco Polo is always a crowd pleaser.
I don’t have a pool to splash around in but my family loves cornhole.
For those of you who don’t know what this is, it’s tossing beanbags into a hole on a board. It’s great for summer as you can hold a beer or drink choice in one hand and toss with the other. Also, it requires little physical effort and expertise meaning luck plays a big part and anyone can play.
I played a lot of croquet when I was a kid. Setting up the course was half the fun. It was the anticipation of the game and part of the ritual. I was pretty decent at it and loved blastin someone else’s ball half way across the playing field.
So what about you? Got a fave outside game you and your family play?
