Simple Summer Fun

Most summer evenings you will find our little family out on the back deck.  We eat dinner and then hang out until Munchkin's bath time.  Sometimes Hubbers and Munchkin build with Lincoln Logs or Muchkin brings out some of his Matchbox car collection.  I planned to make some fun outdoor games before Summer got into full swing, but...it got pushed to the backburner and I kinda forgot.  Then I spied sets of dive rings in Target's Dollar Bin.  And this fun ringer game was born.

It's nothing fancy - but it's fun!  Just add water (or sand) to an old juice container and your ready to go!  It's a perfect way to pass the time while dinner's on the grill :)
