Storm

The recent hail storm, as viewed from the Terwilliger house porch. We luckily only had minimal damage with a few broken window panes. The ice ranged from marble sized, to an inch or so across.

Game you can play during quarantine - bubble bowling! It’s been a favorite at our game night events. All you need is a bubble wand, goal posts (spools of thread work well), and wool fabric. Bubbles are blown on to one end of the fabric, and have to be coaxed through the goal posts on the other side of the fabric by blowing gently on the bubble. Each bubble through is a point. Tag us in your photos so we can see you playing! #parlorgames #unplugged #19thcentury #antiquegamenight

Our first indoor amusement-THE ERRATIC EGG - transfer the egg from one wine glass to another, and back again to its original position, without touching the egg or glasses, or allowing any person or any thing to touch them. To perform this trick, all that you have to do is to blow smartly on one side of the egg, and it will hop into the next glass; repeat this and it will hop back again. #quarentinegames
