A Fun Fall Day
We started out the day trying to find Zach a new pair of glasses. He has out grown his last pair and his prescription has changed. So off we went to find a new pair. Let me tell you- that isn't fun. Zach was set on getting a pair of red glasses. Matt and I were set on not letting him get a pair of red glasses. We didn't want him to look like Sally Jesse Raphael. And the red glasses we were finding were more of a pinkish red and a real red. The other problem was Zach is a true boy- he HATES shopping. He doesn't care what he looks like. So trying on clothes, glasses, shoes, etc. is absolute TORTURE for him. He takes after his father on that. We all became really stressed out but eventually we did find a pair. Whew!!
After that we went out to lunch and then off to do something fun. It was much needed after the whole glasses ordeal. Matt and I thought about taking them to a pumpkin patch- but thought against it. We figured that all of those places would be CROWDED. We don't like crowds. Plus the boys had already gone to Vala's on a school field trip- so it's not like they would miss out on something. Instead we decided to go play putt putt.
We took the boys once before- and it was a COMPLETE disaster. I thought that I had blogged about it before. But it turns out when we went it was pre-blogging days.
All I remember from that day was the boys were doing full swings to hit the golf ball. Matt was loosing his mind because no one was following "golf etiquette." He quit after 3 holes. It was crowded. The boys were going in all directions. Zach got a bloody lip from running into something. And all three cried when their ball disappeared after the last whole. Both Matt and I vowed that we would NEVER do that again. But then a few months ago groupon had a good deal and I bought it on an impulse.
And I am SO GLAD that I did. We had a great time. We were almost the only ones there. The weather was great!! And we laughed a lot!
