So, after our adventure on Saturday, Michael and I went to Top Golf with our small group family. This is the first year that we have been a part of an inter-generational group. It has been SUCH a blessing to us.
We meet weekly, and we have different themes for each week of the month. The first week is called “Sacred Time.” It’s a time to worship God and learn more about Him. Then there is “Outreach Time” the next weekend, which involves reaching out to the community whether through an organization or just helping someone who needs a little boost. The third week is “Family Time” where we open up with each other about what is going on in our lives. And finally, there is “Play Time,” a time to just get together and have some fun. (There are some fifth weeks in some months, and we call that “Adventure Time” where we will visit church plants and other congregations in the area, taking “Spiritual Field Trips”. We haven’t really had an opportunity for this yet, but I will let you know when we do.
So, this past weekend was our first Play Time, and we spent it playing “lazy golf” (a term coined by one of the girls in the group) at Top Golf.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to play at Top Golf, it’s pretty simple. Basically, it’s a fancy driving range with your own private stall with nice seating. You can even order food there, as well. It is a bit on the expensive side for us to go as a couple, but it is less expensive to go as a group.
Most of the time, we were chit chatting about our week.
Michael brought his clubs and thoroughly impressed the group with how far he could get the ball out there. I know I’m a bit bias, but I think he’s a great player.
Afterwards, we went to Freebirds for dinner (a burrito bar kind of place, like Moe’s or Chipotle). I forgot to take my camera in, so I didn’t get any pictures there. However, the conversation was absolutely incredible. I have really grown to love this group. Everyone comes to the table with something incredible to offer, and the amount of encouragement is absolutely breath-taking. I look forward to more outings in the future!
