golf and his girls



















now that we are a family of 3 joey and i are trying to be a little more intentional about creating opportunities for family memories and traditions.  a few weeks ago we decided to carve time out of our busy schedules for family day once per week.  so...every friday we are trying to do something fun together as a family.  (i guess the "fun" part is up for interpretation since yesterday we spent all morning cleaning out our office)  last friday happened to be joey's birthday so of course we had to make it extra special.  i cooked breakfast at home, we were all lazy around the house, joey opened presents, we went to redeem one present (new running shoes from try sports), ate lunch outside (what a beautiful day!), and then we hit the driving range.  as joey prepares to play again it's hard for him to take an entire day off from golf so lucy and i decided to join him.  i even took my clubs (which, by the way, were custom made by my very talented husband).  i think at least 40% of my swings actually made contact which isn't bad for me.  lucy took a nice little catnap while joey tried to help me with my swing and then she woke up in time to watch daddy in action for a while (she actually really loves that : )  when i was sufficiently sore (i guess i need to hit balls more than once every 4 months) we headed back home where we put our good little sleeper to bed and had a romantic italian dinner on the back porch...all in all definitely a fun family friday...
