Our instructor was, once again, very patient with us. We all did much, much better than last time. Of course we still have a long way to go, but we certainly have improved. And we understood things a little better, too, which is nice for everyone. We were even able to keep score, this time. I think we must be quite entertaining. We tend to live in our own little world, and we aren't the most quiet family you will ever meet. One nice man we let pass us said, "It sounds like you guys are having a lot more fun than I am." So funny! I can only imagine how crazy we must look to "real" golfers.
After all that golfing, we were starved! It is traditional in our family for the birthday person to pick where we eat. Brailey decided we would go to Texas Roadhouse. We had never been there, and we are so glad we went! The food is delicious, the atmosphere is great and boy did we ever get a fun surprise...
I shared with the waitress that it was our first time there, and we were celebrating Brailey's 14th birthday. After we had eaten our food, here she came with a saddle and said, "Saddle up, Birthday Girl!" She then called attention to the entire restaurant and we did a few birthday chants and ended with a big old "Yee Haw!" It was really fun for us, because we weren't expecting it.
Once we arrived home, we found our sweet little pug waiting for us to open presents. She can be seen in nearly every picture. She loves to sit next to Brailey, who is the only one who doesn't mind her dog hair and snoring. You can see her in several of the pictures below. Rozzy Girl is so cute, isn't she?
Grandma was very creative, as well, and her present was gorgeously wrapped!
She had a wonderful day at school and was remembered by her friends. She also had her first "real" high school dance practice, and apparently, it was a tough one! Lots of conditioning, already. The team sang happy birthday to her, which she was so happy about, and once we got home, we had another piece of delicious cake to end the day. She said, "Now I'm not a baby teenager, I'm a real teenager!" And yet, she's been wise beyond her years since birth! She is more mature than me, this girl. So special!
