bocce baby.

"summer afternoon - summer afternoon... the two
most beautiful words in the english language."
henry james (1843 - 1916)

my mom bought us a bocce set for the house last week and on friday we opened it up to find - NO instructions!! it was only like 10 bucks on sale, but still - a note with directions would have been appropriate. so i googled the rules, but not before we decided to just play for fun on the front lawn with the kids. i remember that when i was in college a group of guy friends chipped in and bought a proper (read: not-plastic-from-target) bocce set and once they had mastered the regular game they made up "extreme bocce". i was mostly an extreme cheerleader, but it was A LOT of fun to play & watch. maybe i can use my silly set for some extreme entertainment over the summer:)
