Cornhole!

We love playing cornhole in my family and it was certainly the most popular activity at last year's Easter cookout.





Sadly, the set I bought Sean several years ago was cheaply made to begin with and after several times rigging it up, it has finally gone to the yard game graveyard. I decided to upgrade in time for this year's festivities. I've been very disappointed with the quality of the sets I've found in the past (I think I paid $80 for our last set that broke within the first 5 minutes of playing).
 
Luckily, I stumbled onto this set that is made of heavy-duty plastic and has wonderful reviews. I ordered it and it should be delivered tomorrow. I'm so excited for a game that will hopefully stand up to lots of wear and tear this spring/summer.


What are your favorite outdoor games? I'm looking for another game for people to play this weekend and would love your recommendations.

Love cornhole! I thought about having this at our wedding (there was an outdoor space). We ended up just doing bocce ball, because we couldn't get it all together.

Love playing cornhole! A friend's dad makes wooden ones here so I paid him to make some Clemson boards for Cameron's Christmas present this year! They were a big hit! Ladder golf is fun, too.

I just recently bought a vintage bocce set at an estate sale. When we go to the beach, we love playing that. We'll also break it out a few times this spring/summer in our back yard!

Cornhole is was of our favorites too! My stepdad ended up making his own and boards for others because of the quality of the ones he paid for!
