barefoot bowls.

Last weekend we celebrated Thomas' 40th birthday with a big party at a chic lounge bar on Saturday night and a good ol' fashion game of barefoot lawn bowls on Sunday afternoon!

After a late night celebrating with friends the evening before, an afternoon game of barefoot lawn bowls was just everyone needed.

So at 1pm on Sunday afternoon we met up with Tom, Nerissa and Nerissa's family for a few hours on the green :)

I am not sure of the exact history behind this game, but there are "bowls clubs" all over Australia!

Lawn bowls is traditionally known as an older person's game so I thought it was very fitting that Nerissa planned to play a few games on Thomas' actual 40th birthday. You know, just to make sure we were getting him familiar with his future as a 40 something :)

The object of the game- to get your teams ball closest to the white ball at the other end of the green.
