A Round of Golf

This was a family weekend, spent with kids and grand kids, good food and a healthy dose of Grand-Bob's silliness. We took the grand kids out for a round of miniature golf which was riotously entertaining. Now they are hooked and want to golf every day. Mostly the cousins got to bond with one another.

So no discussion regarding the origins of the universe, political insanity, economic woes or the myriad of moronic banalities, were indulged - There's plenty of that waiting in the wings for all of us during the remainder of the week. Just a simple round of golf. Our only concern this weekend was keeping the players out of the water hazard.

I think your grandson needs a mini putter! I hope they didn't ask any embarrassing questions about Tiger Woods.

TechnoBabe said...

Good for you. Family is more important than all the guff we put together to moan about.

DJan said...

Sure is nice to see you relaxin' and relatin' to something other than the sorry state of the country, Grand-Bob! However, don't tarry too long out there in La-La Land, I'll be going through withdrawal!

You know that it is for all of them that we despair about the state of this world. So, I am very happy to see that you are enjoying all of the family as well. What adorable grandkids---and exceptional golfers as well. Who could ask for more from this world,eh?

Aw, the putter is taller than he is. Adorable.

Bananas I can attest that more than one of these guys resembles something similar to a Tiger when it's getting close to their nap time.

TechnoBabe There is a bit of moaning when we contemplate the "aftermath" once they leave. But a Mango Cosmo helps GrandBob and Gramma Nancy cope.

DJan Yes, it's already back to the grind and this will be a busy week indeed.

BackRow Yes, it won't be long before they are wanting to borrow the car keys and they are staying up past OUR bed time.

Orhan He's going to need to grow into the putter, but it won't be long. Mercer was content to fling his golf ball by hand... just as much fun.

When our family gets together, your No list is all we ever talk about.

But then our kids are 14+. Someday there'll be grandkids to indoctrinate...

But not too soon, I hope.

Some days this whole world could just use a good day of mini-golf! :)

Dr. Mom Take heart, there is this great lull between the teen years and grand kids. Use it wisely... I recommend travel while you can. (I sound like a fortune cookie)

Idiot Some of my best memories are playing mini-golf; the real golf doesn't have that windmill you have to putt through between the blades... it's boring!

Reads like a good weekend!

A sweet respite from what passes, these days, for reality. I'm not sure that the miniature golf world is not the actual one. What a happy post, thank you.

Robert the Skeptic said...

StinkyPaw It truly was, though I must confess the little ones get up VERY EARLY in the morning... not something I have become accustomed to.

Marylinn The truth be told, I am way more entertained playing miniature golf than the real thing. I went golfing once... I actually found it rather boring.

That was a lot of fun, I must say. Quite a feat to have wrangled them through 18 holes with nary a water-hazard mishap. Now I have to get my pictures uploaded. Thanks to digital cameras (and their overenthusiastic photographer parents) these kids will have extremely well-documented childhoods.

My boys and I love mini golf.

Robert the Skeptic said...

Waif I honestly can't keep up with all the pictures. Nancy chides me for using the cell phone to take pictures. Anyway, yes... that was a total riot.

SecretAgent I used to ride my bike downtown when I was a kid, loved playing mini golf. I still think it's fun - but I'd feel like an idiot if I played by myself; having the grand kids along gives me an excuse. :)
