3 years, 9 months.
Back a couple of months ago for Father’s Day, you (and Mommy) got me a Groupon for GlowGolf. We just now got around to cashing it in this weekend, here at the end of the summer.
Yesterday at school, you mentioned to your teacher Ms. Michelle that we were going golfing over the weekend… for my birthday. Birthday, Father’s Day… same difference.
She helped you make a birthday card for me. I loved it! I’ll be hanging it up on my wall in my office: “That’s you and me driving a train,” you explained.
Then this morning, you were so excited in anticipation, you celebrated by making a “Christmas tree” out of your basketball hoop and random plastic animals.
I suppose when you’re 3, it’s easy to confuse Christmas, Father’s Day, and my birthday.
While GlowGolf locations can be found all across America, the one closest to us was just down the road in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
I knew it would be fun, simply because it would involve our family and something we’ve never done before.
And sure enough, we totally had a blast!
You’re just 3 months away from turning 4, but you are definitely old enough to appreciate and enjoy it.
Granted, you aren’t old enough to play by the rules. In other words, we didn’t bother to actually take score.
In fact, you helped Mommy and me by scooting the ball in the hole anytime we got close to the hall.
At this particular GlowGolf, there are 18 different holes and you can play them up to 3 times. I was impressed by the glow-in-the-dark artwork surrounding us.
Also, note to self: Next time we go, make sure to stand right under the black light each time you take a picture. Even though the light is “black,” it makes for clearer pictures!
Yes, we will definitely be going back. Not simply because it was the perfect way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon, and because it’s really cheap ($8 for adults, kids age 5 and less only $3), but because Mommy won a free ticket for next time!
The final hole is a Plinko-like toss-up where it’s fairly easy, yet random, to get a hole-in-one. But if you do, as Mommy did, you win a free game!
I just happened to catch a shot of her making the winning putt!
Thanks for my Father’s Day/birthday/Christmas gift. I had a really fun time with you and Mommy. That’s the best kind of gift you can give me anyway.
