On any warm summer evening.... My sisters and I would gulp down our dinner and as quickly as possible try to figure out who was going to play "night games," when, and where. We'd run to our rooms and find some dark colored clothes to put on. Then we'd douse ourselves in bug spray and run outside. All the neighborhood kids often ended up in our yard. If it was still light out we'd play kick ball, spud, 500, or tag(Freeze, TV, and Regular). As soon as darkness hit we'd pull out the flashlights and begin a game of flashlight tag, capture the flag, sardines, ghost in the graveyard or kick the can. We'd stay out until about 11 or so, head off to bed and do it again the next night.
I miss those days!
