The weather is nice, so the family and I have been playing yard games.

So far I have croquet, ladder ball, corn hole, washers, frisbee, and of course the wife and I play softball so we through the ball a lot. Well we did till she got into the third trimester.

What are you guys doing now that spring is here?

Are those lawn darts?

I played them when I was a kid and no one ever got impaled.

I like badminton, but I'm terrible.

I ain't much good at any of them, but have always loved to play. We never got any lawn darts. Pops could see the deadly war happening and said no.

We had a BBQ at the Mother-in-laws last weekend and the washers saw some action.

We had a throwing knife game when I was a kid.

That did get taken away quickly.

Are they dug in?

My set is above ground and it's not as much fun and a bit harder.

Austin...it's a portable set made in octagon wooden box frames. You might be right about it being harder, because you get a lot of bouncers. It sure is nice to be able to take it with you though.

Think we called it mumbly peg as kids . We smartened up ( luckily ) before anyone got hurt too bad :rolleyes:

One I didn't see mentioned is bocce ball . Don't need a court , just go around the yard . Every toss is different , 'specialy if you have an uneven yard like mine :)
