Putt-Putt & Sunday Sundaes

Last night was Monday night, and you know what that means. . . Family Night!
 Clint and I are always looking for ways to switch up our family nights.  We like to make them fun, and something that will keep the children's attention while they're learning.
 Last night, just to throw everybody off, we started with games, which just happened to be on the putting green of the golf course. 
 We each took turns trying to putt the ball into the hole -sometimes at an angle, sometimes close, and other times far, far away.  None of us are very good, but we sure had a blast!
 After the "game", we came home and had treats/lesson.
(They were combined, just to throw everyone off).  We used Sunday Sundaes to teach about keeping the Sabbath day holy.  We offered the kids a sundae topped with their favorite things - dill pickles, Italian salad dressing, Parmesan cheese, and grapes.  No one wanted to eat it.  
When we asked them why they said because it was disgustingly gross!  
But you like all these things. 
Yeah, but not on a Sundae!
Then we offered them a sundae topped with fudge, caramel, candy, whipped cream, and a cherry.  Of course, everyone wanted it.  Just like some toppings are good but not on a sundae, some activities are good but not on Sunday. While eating our sundaes, we discussed different activities and which ones we felt were good for Sundays and which ones weren't. 

All in all, I'd say our Family Night was definitely not "par for the course".  It was more like a "hole in one"!
