Fun and Games on the Fourth. . .not just for the kids!

I’ll be honest, sometimes I’m just not that good with letting loose and having crazy child-like fun. So, I really appreciate people who know how to have a good time.  My sister-in-law, Cindy, is one of those people and once again for our July 4 get together, she had games organized (with prizes!) for all of the kids.

First there was the sling shot into the hula-hoop-in-the-pool game.

Uncle Jerry was the goal tender–and he “helped” the younger players make it into the hoop.

Of course the adults had to get into the fun. All of the brothers had to give it a whirl.

I love that these siblings remember what it was like to be children and to have fun together. . .This is five of the eight children in Scott’s family.

Being a grown-up means you can live in both worlds for a short time. . .

Aunt Cindy did draw the line at the piñata hitting. . .you had to be under a certain height.

It was a tough piñata and finally one of the high school cousins, Alex, was recruited for those final whacks.

Of course, the next generation of game players was resting up. . .

These times together are precious and fleeting. . .

. .and I can’t help to think how important it is for our children to see us playing, too.
