Today was Day 12 of 23. Eleven days left. I passed the halfway mark. So we decided to go have fun.
It’s Spring Break here in Houston. As I can’t travel anywhere this week, I wanted to do a few little things with the kids to celebrate them being out of week. Their last spring break in elementary school (I’m not crying, you’re crying).
We love Top Golf. I mean we only went one time and none of us can golf to save our life, but we had a blast.
Tuesdays are half price at Top Golf so off we went this morning. I had a two hour window between work calls and trainings so we went sandwiched in a mini adventure.
Even though one of our crew was a little grumpy, his mood changed fast. We got a great bay right in the middle on the top floor even though the place was packed. If you don’t have a Top Golf in your town, the structure is basically a three floor semi-circle around all these golf targets. We love the top floor the best. Then each individual bay opens to the outside targets.
We cracked up at our terribleness. Well the baby can actually make some targets, but the rest of us were hopeless. I offered to give them a few lessons this summer just so we could make contact with the ball every time, but they said half the fun is cracking up at our awfulness! I agree.
We ordered appetizers and I let them have sodas (typically a no go). Then we came home and I let them watch Yes Day on Netflix. I told them I’m game if they want to start making their lists for our own YES DAY.
I love the premise of this movie. We moms did used to be fun.
I was a daredevil. Thrill-seeker. Laugher. Party-goer. Now I’m boring and stern and tired. Wouldn’t it be nice to show the kids I actually can still be fun? Although I’m incredibly nervous about what’s going to end up on this YES DAY list!
Anyhow, today was good. I’m still tired and I had a ton of work to do when I got home but it was worth it!
