While we were waiting on our truck to be fixed we found out that we had some extra time on our hands. It was nice because it gave us a chance to see more people from home and Lee had more time to play disc golf. For those of you who don’t know, Lee doesn’t play sports. That is not hyperbole. He doesn’t play ANY sports and that includes when he was a little kid. His dad put him in Little League when he was a kid and he spent most of his time sitting in the outfield day dreaming and playing in the dirt.
So it goes without saying I was deeply surprised when his friend Bryan (Noodle to those in the know!) talked him into trying disc golf and he actually liked it. Not only liked it but played numerous times (10!!!) and even bought the equipment. My curiosity got the better of me so I finally said I would go and play a round with him. I do play sports (varsity soccer in high school) but neither golf or disc golf is really my thing. Still if Lee liked it I was willing to give it a try and if nothing else it would be a nice way to get some extra steps in. Plus we could take Jack and since he had been pretty cooped up that appealed to me as well.
Turns out it was pretty fun. The frisbee part was ok (I did better than I expected) but the walk was beautiful. Just like regular golf there are harder and easier tees (we did easy) and there are different type of disc for short, medium, and long throws. This course had holes in the woods, by the lake, and in fields which made for a great walk.
Overall I liked it and Jack LOVED it. The good news is there is an app that not only keeps your scores but also shows the many disc golf courses in any area. Lee played several while we were in Columbus but they are kind of everywhere. He’s lost 5lbs so far from playing and its a good way for us to get out and move. Plus Lee is finally playing a sport. How cool is that?
As I mentioned we also got to spend more time with family and friends. I didn’t take pictures of everyone, but I saw my college roommate Sandy, our best friends kids, and a friend of mine Dawn and her husband George. We also ate at at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants El Vaquero and I took advantage of the cool “honor system” farmers market across the street from the state park.
We also had lots of time for grand-baby facetime. Elliot is getting really big and Oliver started pre-preschool! I love the pictures we get from them and we talk at least once a week. Kat is moving into a bigger apartment and Kyrston is flying up to be with her for a week. I love that my girls are bonding over their babies and cant wait until we are all able to be together in one place.
Finally, we got our truck and off we went to Pennsylvania to see Kelly and Bill. The bodywork looked fantastic, but the engine work was still to be tested. More on that next time!
