Some of the moments that I remember vividly from my childhood are from family gatherings like these. We used to love playing hide and seek and spotlights together. I was more of a Swing Ball guy so I often spent my time swinging and bashing the ball backwards and forwards.

We usually had a good group of people coming in around the weekends and so we loved to make a competition out of everything. Hacky sack, soccer, cricket – we played so many versions of these as we really enjoyed dividing up into teams and competing against each other.

  1. Thank you very much for reminding us of childhood and how important it is for children to be in nature. I do not know about you but in my childhood sand and mud were the most important things next to the ball. A lot of wonderful family moments happened right in the backyard and a lot of friendships were made. It is sad that children today just want phones and computer games. I support all activities in nature.

    • Yes, kkole13. I agree totally these moments are being lost in this technical-savvy world although awesome for blogs and finding out stuff no good for adduction and children. 

      Many Thanks
