This weekend was the first major at the club, so Dave was MIA from Thursday-Saturday night. He did however manage to take 4th place overall! Golf is kind of his jam. I joke that I am a “golf widow” since he doesn’t do the whole hunting (deer widow) thing.
I am so not a golfer, but Friday night, the club does a Horse Race. I remember the first year, Dave was in the horse race and he called me to come watch. I asked if I should wear a hat and gloves, you know, go full-Derby. I got there, and to my surprise, there were no horses. Good thing I left my hat in the car! For those of you who are like me and have no idea what a horse race is, you can read all about it here. Basically, a few guys (horses) in the tournament are selected to play, then everyone else places bets on their “horses”, and everyone follows along in golf carts, drinking and smoking cigars. When it’s time to relocate the carts to the green, imagine a pack of golf carts (literally over 100) cresting a hill to the “dun dun dun dun” part of Beethoven’s 5th. It’s also great fun to get a good spot on the green so you can watch the putting, however, 4 carts got hit with balls this year. To me, this was the highlight of the horse race.
Saturday night was the awards ceremony, which meant they announced Dave’s name. So his night was made. We had an amazing dinner and danced to live music by the fire pits.
Some other highlights of the weekend included Lonon’s first time at a public park. Homegirl loved it and cried when I took her out of the swings.
Sunday, Peyton’s friend Mia turned 4 and had a pool party by the splash pad. Swim lessons are on our Summer To-Do list, so girlie had to wear a life jacket. She still had a blast! It was so fun seeing her reunite with her school friends, since she was done at the end of May.
We are starting out the week with PERFECT weather – looks like we will be outside all day! Bring on the sunburns and scraped knees!
