Magic balls.

Over the weekend, I had a photo session out of town with a very large family.
It went well and I'll try to show pictures from it soon.
But the best part, for me, was the alone time.

Have I mentioned before that I love my kids? I do.
Crazy about them.
But I sooooo enjoy alone time too.

So after the photo session, I went to meet The Man who was playing in a golf tournament.
He played in 3 tournaments over the weekend. Crazy.

The golf course is out in the country, which just made me giggle.
I promise Kansas is not all hick-ified, but I did have to go down dirt roads to get there.

I took this one out my window while I was driving.


What was unusual about this golf tournament was that it was a night tournament.
They play with glow balls.

You don't even want to know all the jokes the guys came up with about their magic balls.
I swear, even grown men are still 12 years old sometimes.

The sunset was ridiculously gorgeous.


And then once the sun went down - this was all I could see.
Pitch black with random streaks of green or orange floating through the air.


They made me drive the golf cart. Yeah, not a smart move on the menfolk's part.
I couldn't see anything.
At one point they told me I was about 20 feet off the cart path. Oops!
There was lots of laughter, lots of screaming (because to a "12 yr old grown man", it's really fun to pop out from behind a tree and scare Beki - over and over), and lots of fun.


So, how was your weekend?

I can't wait to see your photos either...and the country road is beautiful...I am from the Kansas City area(Missouri side)so I know what you mean when you say Kansas isn't all hickified...funny word too...the pictures was gorgeous of the sunset too...and the magic balls...my husband would have fit right in acting like a 12-year-old with the rest...what a funny story...but how neat to golf at night...you wouldn't want me driving the golf cart either:)

*Wipes brow* I guess I can allow my husband to just be himself now that you've alerted me that they're all really twelve on the inside...with less hair and bigger bellies.

I snickered when I read the title of your post... so perhaps I still have the teen in me too...heehee.
Sounds like a lot of fun!... I have never tried golfing yet.. only pitch and putt... but the golf carts and glow balls might sway me to try it out. ;)
