Thinking Out Loud Thursday - May 25, 2017

Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday!  We are so close to the weekend and I can't stop thinking about it getting here.  Three glorious days off work and lots of fun activities planned.  It just doesn't get much better.  That's what I'm thinking out loud about today!

Memorial Day weekend is when we gather for the annual washers tournament with my friend Linda and her family.  Have you ever played washers?  I had the good fortune of being paired with Linda's dad a couple years ago and we managing to pull off the win.  Hope the washer gods are with me again this year!

Washers is a great yard game where the whole family can participate.  You basically are tossing washers at the center of a wood box that is 25 feet away from you.  Points are given for getting your washer in the cup (center) or in the box, as long as your opponents doesn't cancel your point out by getting their washer in the same spot.

We play that you also can earn a point if you have a "leaner" (washer resting on the wood trim of the box).  It takes an entire day to work your way through the tournament and it's a fantastic way to kick off the summer season!

We'll also be celebrating a graduation!  Kelsey is my friend Linda's youngest daughter.  It's so hard to believe that the little girl I've known since birth is old enough to be finishing high school.  This young women has a wonderful future ahead and I'm excited to see what lays in store for her.  Linda and I made the decorations for her graduation party a few weeks ago when she was visiting.  I'll share them with you next week.

I'm hoping to capture all the weekend festivities with my new Canon Rebel T6!!  I've been wanting a DSLR camera since......well, forever and it finally happened.  We decided to get the bundle package and I'm still wading through the shipping box admiring all the things I know nothing about, but hopefully by the weekend I will at least know how to take a picture.  Check back in next week to see how I did!  

So that's some things on my mind today.  What are you thinking out loud about?  Link up and share your thoughts.
