Playing bocce ball in my parents backyard for fathers day was a blast! Typically bocce is played in courts covered in sand or gravel but my parents yard worked great. The first time I played bocce ball was at my aunt’s families house near the Catskills of New York. Most of my family is from back east and my parents were married in a lovely Presbyterian church in the small town of Geneseo, New York. A few years after they were married were converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints and decided to move our family to Utah where my dad could pursue his career as an architect. Every summer after that we would spend our summers in New York swimming in Grandma Teel’s pool and playing in her big yard. Seriously, her yard was breathtaking and filled with a wide variety of plants and flowers. Playing bocce ball brings back my happy childhood memories of playing with my sister, brothers, aunts and uncles outside in Grandma Teel’s yard.
