Our May Date - Frisbee Golf & Lunch!

Today Greg and I took time off from work for our date in May which was a round of Frisbee Golf followed by lunch.  Greg had mentioned a few times in the past that he would like to try this, so I figured one of our dates would be a perfect time! :-)

We played in Fountain Hills, Scottsdale, at a very beautiful course surrounding a community lake and one of the largest fountains in the world which sprays up to 500 ft high.

We found the 'tee' (landing pad) for the first 'hole' (basket).  I went first doing my best to throw towards the 'hole' - notice the athletically poised stance as I throw, buwahh!

And I threw my frisbee in the lake.  On the FIRST hole.  And that was it.  That was my experience at playing Frisbee Golf.

Meanwhile, Greg continued playing.  He offered to let me throw his frisbee but I wanted him to have the full experience so I just walked with him and enjoyed the day and our time together.  THEN halfway through the course, Greg was attacked!  By a bird.  This bird dive-bombed Greg about 3 different times and actually grazed the back of his neck!  As the attack went down, I had just a split second to catch this picture of the bird turning back around for his final attack!

Ironically, my frisbee was recovered from the lake by a park employee immediately after Greg finished the 18th hole...

Despite losing my frisbee on the FIRST hole and Greg getting attacked by a bird, it was a great date! ;-)

Monster Truck Mayhem!!!

I'm hesitant to admit, we actually went to a Monster Truck show.  Uh, to take Nathan of course and needless to say, it was a spectacle to be seen!  Despite the car crunching and the fire-breathing-dragon-robot it was one of the most family friendly events I think I've ever been.  More family friendly than a baseball game - seriously!

Here's a video of our night with the Monster Trucks:
