Busy, Busy, Busy

This week seems like it is going to be another busy week! It’s all good stuff, but it is keeping me way too busy!

Wednesday night we are going to see Bruce Springsteen in concert! We bought tickets the minute they went on sale. This will be my 5th time to see him. His concerts are always great! I just hope we don’t get told to sit down like we did last year when we went!

My youngest daughter is actually supposed to be in a program at our church/school the same night as the concert. She will of course have to miss it but they are doing the program again Thursday morning which I will get up bright and early to go see! I felt so bad telling her teacher, “Sorry, but we are going to see Bruce that night so she is going to have to miss doing the Way of the Cross.”

This week is also Master’s Week! In my house this week is totaly dedicated to golf. We were lucky enough to het to go to the Master’s in 2000 and I would love to go again! I will even make Egg Salad Sandwhiches for when we watch it this weekend. It won’t be like walking the course with one in your hand, but it’s as close as we will get.

Par 3 Course at the Masters

This weekend is of course Easter so we will be coloring eggs and going up to my in-laws. The Easter Bunny will also have to appear which means I need to get off my lazy butt and go shopping for goodies to put in the baskets. Also with Easter being this Sunday, Lent is over which means I get to eat chocolate again!

Life will be good come Sunday!

My Daughter The Golf Stalker

This past Friday we let the girls skip school and we went to go see the Champions Golf tour that game here to Houston. We love going to see the Champions play because they can still play great golf and they are so friendly especially to the kids.

First of all let me give you just a little background on our family history with Fuzzy Zoeller. My father-in-law got to play in a Pro-Am golf event with him many years ago. He has a signed dollar bill from Fuzzy that he “won” on a hole. My daughter’s named our first family hamster Fuzzy after him. About 4 years ago my oldest daughter got his autograph and Mr. Zoeller overheard me say “Wow, that is a 3rd generation autograph you got there! You Grandpa has one, your Dad has one and now you do too!” Mr. Zoeller came up to me and asked me, jokingly of course, “Are you calling me old!?”

Friday, my youngest daughter got Fuzzy’s autograph on her pairing sheet when he came off the putting green. He was asking her about her Hannah Montana shirt and kidding around with her. We started to walk around the course a bit and we caught up with his group on the 6th hole. My youngest daughter decided she wanted to watch him play so we followed his group. She kept getting right up to the ropes when he was hitting the ball. When he was done on the 9th hole he signed his ball and gave it to my daughter. She was in 7th heaven!

We went to the 18th green and stayed there for the rest of the afternoon. My youngest daughter took a white hat she got and was standing outside the scoring shack getting players to sign it. She got some great autographs, Lee Trevino, Bernhard Langer, Fred Funk, John Cook (He also gave her a signed ball) just to name a few. She got Fuzzy to sign her white hat as well.

After Fuzzy was done he went up on the balcony of the clubhouse to relax, no doubt and probably try and get away from my daughter! My oldest daughter took her hat and threw it up to Fuzzy for him to sign. My youngest daughter tried to throw her hat up to him but he told her kidding around, “No way, I already signed it for you! Don’t you have enough from me today!”

So, if you here in the news that Fuzzy Zoeller is being stalked by a 9 year old that would be my little 9 year old!

The Garden Of Eden

I think God must be a golfer. How else do you explain the beauty of Augusta National and the traditions of The Masters. I was very fortunate to attend the Masters back in 2000. What made it even more special was that we attended on Wednesday which is the last practice day and the day that the players get to play the Par 3 tournament. The minute I walked out and saw the Par 3 Course I stood back and tried to catch my breath. I had just walked out into the Garden Of Eden. That is the only way I can explain the beauty of this nine hole par 3 course. It was such a treat to be able to watch the Par 3 Tournament on TV yesterday. My girls loved watching the kids help their Dads play golf. Hopefully one day I will be able to make a return visit to the Garden Of Eden.
