Too Much Fun. . .
What'cha Readin'?

Tradition

Every year on Father's Day, we celebrate with our annual family croquet tournament.

I think we've played every year for for the past 17 years -- beginning when Brian was just a very little guy and could barely lift the mallet.

We've used the same croquet set since the beginning.  Over the years, the equipment is beginning to show the wear.  We have a great time, though.

Lots of banter and laughter.

Intense concentration.

It's a challenging course (My dad claims he wouldn't be able to play on a flat course) with our sloping yard.

Usually, everyone is "in the hunt" to become "poison" first.

Although,this year there was someone far, far behind the pack!

Even Jenny wants to play!

In the end, one player reigns supreme!  This year's champ . . .

So envious of your sunny weather! We had another boatload of rain. Family traditions are so much fun. My family played crochet for years, too and sometimes still do. Everyone in your family looks great! Brian has grown even more good looking this past year!

We had a wonderful day here. Super weather, good conversation, and good food. Glad to hear you had an excellent day also! :D

I was thinking about your sloping yard and what a challenge it would present. Looks like fun!

Cookie

It's not a challenge if the yard is flat!

I played for the first time in years at our building cookout last month. It was fun...
