Under the Black Light

Last weekend a miracle occurred!  Ken had the weekend off!  That's a rare occasion for us.  We had no big plans, so we mostly relaxed and spent some time together.  Time got away from us a bit on Saturday and by the time we realized we had been laying around the house all day it was dinner time!  I suggested we eat a quick dinner and then go play mini golf down the street.  Frances got all excited because she wanted to know if they would be doing the blacklight.  I let the kids change into clothing with more white than they had been wearing and after dinner we headed out.

I couldn't take very good pictures because I figured the flash would ruin them. You can still see that we had a good time glowing in the dark and playing golf.

I also learned some interesting things while I was there:

  • Powdered laundry detergent fluoresces under a black light. I learned this because apparently my clothes aren't getting rinsed as well as they should and my shirt had speckles all over it.  Maybe I should stop shoving so many clothes in the washer!
  •  My kids can't count.  None of them.  Ken and I laughed each time they would play through: putt, putt, putt, putt, putt, putt, putt and then announce, "I got a four!!" I honestly don't think they were trying to be deceitful, they just had a hard time counting while concentrating on their plays.
  • It is a good thing we have played this course in the day light.  There are some parts of it that don't show up at all in the black light.
  • Family time is fun!  I wish we could do things like this more often.  I guess we'll just have to take advantage of it whenever we can!
