It was like old home days to see all our old friends at Johnson Hall. This was the event in our back yard many years ago. I was quite busy with Toys and Games all weekend, but was able to break away for a few minutes Sunday morning to play cricket with the 24th Regiment of Foot.
double ball... and
the tables of writing implements, tops, cups and balls, etc...
bat and trap. This family stayed and played almost every game! They were cheerfully competitive and had a great time.
This was a particularly popular game!
The Cat and Mouse competition was heated!
The kids lined up for a three-legged race.
Characteristically there was a tangle halfway down the course.
Shinny sticks waiting for play.
Bowling to the batter was not as hard as I thought it would be. I'd like more practice!
I did catch a fly ball and was pretty excited about it.
Not sure if the guys were particularly surprised with my catch or glad for any out!
I love playing cricket! and the 24th team was great. My up to bat was not stellar and I sure need some practice there, but we won the game and I'm looking forward to next time!
