Hitting Some Balls...


Took the kids to the driving range this evening...
Only lasted about 45 minutes as it was hot as H-E-L-L!


Bob has a golf event coming up on Friday...
He needed a little practice and of course the kids wanted to join!


Alex gave it a try tonight....
She didn't want to take any pointed from Bob.

After listening and getting a different club...
She was actually able to hit some balls, at a decent distance.



Izzy was actually pretty good...
Hitting the ball every time and making it almost 75 yards.



Sawyer can really hit the ball...
he is actually very very good!

Bob should take him out for a 
round of golf sometime..

Sawyer is actually probably better 
than Bob!




 Avin needed a lot more help then the others...
The club was just a little to big for her but she managed...

Thanks to Bob for stepping in and giving her some pointers...
Helping the little one out when she need it.




It was fun but it was sweaty...
It also costs a lot to hit a small amount of balls...
in a really really sort period of time!

But its always nice to get out of the house for a bit...
I know the kids enjoyed it!

To Read

On March 13th I started my journey with reading again...
Having read 53 books sense that date above...

I've always been one to enjoy getting lost in a book...
I actually become obbsessed and can't put books down...


I started with "The Nightingale" by Kristin Hannah...
This was a fantastic book to suck you right back into reading...

I went on to read "The girl from the train" and "Me before you"
Both books I finished in less then 2 days and both books I would highly recommend.


I went on to read "The Kitchen House"...
and let me tell you this book is amazing!!

If you can stomach reading about slavery, rape, love, family...
This book is my all time favorite and i'd recommend it over and over again.



I then read "November 9" and quickly fell in love with the author Colleen Hoover...
Through out the months I read the books pictures above, as well as their sequels...

If you like romance and young love you will love her style of writing...
but its the twists, turns and the reasons people come or stay together the suck you in.

She is truly an amazing author, writing books you don't want to put down...
I have a few more books of hers to read and can't wait to get ahold of them.



I quickly became obsessed with books that took place around World War II...
What it was like to be a german or a jew during that time.

Books that had me bawling and absolutly speechless...
The things jewish people had gone through...
it's heartbreaking. 



It amazes me how quickly a book can draw you in...
no matter the story line or plot you find a way to connect with certain books.

It could be about love, loss, secrets, lies, sickness ...
whatever its about you find that connect and the book becomes a part of you.


I was introduced to "Kindle Unlimited" on amazon...
and let me tell you it is amazing.

Books are expensive and when you are reading 2-3 books a week...
you have to find ways to rent books for a cheap price.

Kindle Unlimited is $9.99 a month...
with a 30 day trial!


My favorite kind of books are those that come in series...
Books I can truly loose myself in for hours and days ...
sometimes even weeks if there are enough books in the series.

These books above where all series based on sports and love...
I enjoyed each series and got lost in the all.


I'm all over the board when it comes to the books I read...
I'll give anything a try that is recommend or has great reviews...
but if it doesn't suck me in right away, i'll end of putting it done.

My goal for 2016 was to read 20 books and I crushed that goal quickly...
I jumped it up to 40 and that goal was easily accomplished as well...
I am now 60% done with my 54th book of 2016...
and my to read list is never ending!

Do you have a book to recommend...
Let me know i'd love to hear!
