Mini-Golf Finally!

Throughout the summer, Maddy and I had talked
about going mini-golfing.
It's the only type of golfing I feel athletic enough to attempt!
But, we had the craziest summer weather -- it was either blasting hot + humid 
or raining like crazy + humid!
As you know, humidity and I do not get along.
We have a hate/hate relationship! 
From spring until the first frost - my hair is
in "bad hair day" mode!
I know, I know, I should be grateful I have hair, blah blah blah,
but seriously -- when my hair puffs up and frizzes into
a monstrosity, it makes me very cranky.

Monica and I could be twins with our big hair!
I should see a therapist, right -- hair should
not impact me so much, but it does, so my hair
and I try to somewhat peacefully co-exist during the rainy and 
hot and humid seasons.
Lately, even my extremely hot flat iron has not helped much.  :(

Back to my golfing story -- I got distracted thinking about
my hair again! ;)

On Labor Day weekend, the heavens smiled upon us,
a cool front blew in and the humidity level went down for the entire day!
It was our chance -- to go mini-golfing!
Surprise, surprise, the course was not crowded!
Maddy and I don't keep score.  
Why bother when we
make par or better on each and every hole??
Maddy made a hole in one!

We're hoping to hit the course again before winter -
it all depends on the humidity level, of course!

I am rolling!! The hair issues- SO feel your pain! One day Scott called me Gene- as in Gene Wilder- because, well, my hair was OUT OF CONTROL!! I"m so glad you guys found a day to mini-golf. I'd go every weekend, but my peeps don't "get" the fun of mini- golf. Bummer!

I'm laughing at your hair adventures. I have the exact same thing, which is why I will NEVER EVER live in FL. This extremely warm and humid summer in MI has been hell on my hair. I'm glad you found time to sneak in some mini golfing with Maddy. It's been fun following you on IG. I can't believe she had homecoming this year! Sigh!

So cute. We use to go mini golfing in Texas when the girls were small... We never left without one or two fights breaking out between my two. My husband and I would leave with hanging heads hoping that we didn't run into someone we knew. You looked like you had an entirely different experience with your darling girl. Hope you have a great rest of the week!!

Kelli said...

You had me laughing!! I have not been mini golfing in years... We need to go again soon!

That sounds like such fun! Emma won't go with me. I'm also dying to go bowling! Don't ask why because I can't tell you. Your hair issues crack me up and give me flashbacks to living in Memphis and then Miami. Shudder.

I am cracking up too. However, I have the exact opposite problem! The humidity makes my hair completely flat! We would have the perfect head of hair if we could share half with each other!

We love to golf too! Way to go, Maddy!
