Do You Play Croquet?
we had a fun memorial day. our ward had a picnic at a really nice park. andrew and emmy played at the playground and played with balls. andrew and i played ladderball for a while. then me and andrew and some of his cousins played croquet. my mom had gotten a set just recently and we opened it for the first time. i hadn't played in so long i had to read the rules. i remember i used to play all the time when i was a kid. andrew thought it was like golf at first, but then he got the hang of it, sort of, and didn't hit the ball so hard or swing his stick so wildly. of course he did keep picking up his ball and putting it in front of the wickets so he could hit it through. we just let him and didn't count his wins. he really enjoyed himself. i love it when he likes things that i liked as a kid.
