Playing Saturday Evening Games

A mid-afternoon storm rumbled over our mountains, but the rain stopped and the sky cleared just in time for our Saturday Evening Games.

The storm was intense, if brief. Lightning, thunder, strong winds, and a deluge of rain. But then the clouds were chased away just in time for a spectacular sunset and a pleasant evening.

Come on, bro.

Come on, bro.

The pent-up energy had to be released, and the official game time was declared. Well, Landon declared the game time and Frankie opted to refrain. Don’t worry – Landon will find someone!

Off to find someone more fun!

    I was figuring Landon would find the Little Prince!

    Sounds like an ideal evening. Where was the little Prince?
