This year my friend Katie was in town from L.A., so we wanted to get her reacquainted with the Midwest and there's no better way to do that than to go out to my aunt and uncle's. We got there late afternoon, setting up the tents while the boys got to work on catching fish. They absolutely love being out there, whether they're fishing, hitting golf balls up the hill or playing their version of pool. It's so much fun for kids and adults.
The boys' version of pool consists of a free-for-all of rolling the balls to smack others in the holes. No pool sticks are involved. Somewhat good, somewhat not. Or maybe I should replace "good" with "safe."
There's a contest to see who can hit the ball closest to the pin up on the hill, over the pond. I should have done a better job of photographing the land so you have a better idea of what's going on!
Not too hard to put down three little boys who ran and ran and ran until they ran out of gas. Fresh, country air helps too!
Gracie had fun, that is, until someone gave Meredith a brownie and Mere started pushing Gracie around like she was her brother. Poor Grace!
Thanks Aunt Mary and Uncle John for another wonderful Labor Day campout!
