A typical saying about living in the Pacific Northwest is "Don't like the weather? Wait 5 minutes." And those words could not have been truer than for the way Mother Nature was having us change our plans this past weekend. We wanted to get our girls into the fresh air, away from the screens of television and computer and go for a little hike, but the one minute sunny/next minute showers was too much of a deterrent. Oh well.
We're lucky in that we have a good space in our basement for indoor games. We've had some intense PingPong sessions however, foosball is becoming a new favorite for us so we decided to look into classic foosball tables to add to our "play room" downstairs.
There are so many activities you can do when you live in the Pacific N.W. that we've begun to acquire all kinds of equipment. We have a corner for our camping equipment, (which hasn't been used much lately because I have this "thing" for running water and indoor plumbing ;-> ) and swimming pool toys. Just the array of pool floats rafts foam 2 inch can take up quite a bit of space. We have the remains of my Katie’s softball playing days in another corner. A great bat and an Easton Pro Series 11 3/4" infield baseball glove epg51bw which she just had to have, yet now waits for her lonely in the corner. Someday the rain will subside and we'll get back outside and throw the ball around. Someday soon, we hope!
