Golf date

My dreams of driving a golf cart came true yesterday- thanks to Joey having a birthday and my sister Tara coming to visit(and babysit, thanks Tara!). Joey and I were able to spend the afternoon at the golf course together. The course we went to offers a free round of golf for birthdays, so Joey took advantage of it. He golfed while I drove the cart and did the occasional fancy golf clap. I also shouted things like, "Nice on!" "Quiet on the course!""Better luck next time!" "Fore!""Get in the hole!" and "Bravo!" I have to say it was one of the funnest(I know funnest is not a word, but I like it OK!) dates we've had in a while. I had never rode or driven a golf cart before and I thought it looked fun and it was! I was not disappointed. Especially when Joey was walking back to the cart at Hole 3 and I decided to step on the gas a little, then he walked a little further and I gassed it more. Then I did it again and he ran and jumped on the back, and well, I floored the sucker. He held on tight thinking I was going to stop but I didn't. I said something like, "We are going to get in trouble Joey!" and then he said, "Stop already! I didn't think you would keep going this long!" Oh. I thought he was having fun. My bad. I guess it was just me having fun.

Crazy driver comin through!

Go Joey! That boys got game.

The wind was nuts yesterday!(see Joey's MC Hammer pants above) Here is a picture of me sitting on the ground beside the cart trying to be shielded from the wind. Note to self, wear a thicker jacket when its 50 mph winds and the sun isn't out. Dumb is me.



After Joey played 9 holes and I smashed the cart into a tree(ok, not really, but that would've made for a pretty good story) we hit a few at the driving range.

Here is video of one of Joey's nice drives.

Here is video of me trying real hard. Watch if you want a good laugh. Joey's says I have good form but he has to say that, I'm his wife. He knows things will get ugly if he says otherwise:) I just wish when I did make contact with the ball(which is only half the time) it went more than 2 feet. Oh well, I tried and I had fun. Listen to the wind in the video. Can I emphasize enough how windy it was out there?


It was a fun day. Thanks again Tara for watching the kiddosl!

Holly you totally crack me up!! Everything you wrote was making me laugh out loud today -- sounds like the golf cart adventure was awesome!

Sounds like a lot of fun guys. I liked the golf cart trick but you're right it's probably not much fun for the person chasing the cart. For future outings may I recommend the "Hill Climb" trick. Here's how it goes: wait until you're about to climb a hill then pretend the cart has ran out of juice. Ask the rider to give you a push (uphill) and then just as you top the hill ride off laughing hysterically. Great fun but only works once..
