Ten on Tuesday

 Hello. Welcome to the plague house. Everyone here has been sick....except for me. Though I'm on the fence right now if I am coming down with it, or just normal medication side effects. Time will tell. But on to happier things, (I'll save the plague notes for another post).

Ten Favorite Backyard Games-
  We really don't get outside enough. And now that we're adults it's mostly to do yard work and make sure the kids don't wander off or get killed while we are doing yard work. It's time to put the fun back in to the back yard so here's a few. 

  1. Croquet
  2. Bocce
  3. Badminton
  4. Frisbee - Ultimate or otherwise
  5. Lawn Darts- illegal they may be but fun they were. Scope out garage sales to find a set.
  6. Wiffle ball.
  7. Water war- less of a game and more of an all out epic showdown. Most weapons are fair game. Water guns, water balloons, spray bottles, pump sprayers. Just not the hose, disqualified due to unlimited ammo. Have a kiddie pool for refills
  8. Horseshoes
  9. Ladder ball
  10. Cornhole/washers

I am SOOOO kicking myself for not buying the lawn darts set (in the original box!) I saw at the city flea market last fall.
