Bocce, anyone?

Joe makes his shot...he has a different method...throwing it pretty high and then it drops with a thud and doesn't roll much.

Ah, my brother-in-law, Joe. Sometimes a picture IS worth 1000 words....

Tim goes for a shot.

Trying to measure who's ball is closest to the pallino

Rich gets ready to toss his ball. (his brother, Joe, is probably talking smack the whole time...if not, his son, Joe, on the other side of him is. :o)

Tim goes for a shot whilst his Dad, Uncle Joe and Nano watch.

Playing in Joe's backyard in West Roxbury, MA

Bocce is a great Italian yard game. The boys really loved it. We played several times while we were visiting Rich's family. We actually bought a bocce ball set to bring home with us. (it isn't light, either!) We have already had them out a few times between rain showers to play.
