Weekend of Golf

This was definitely a weekend of watching golf.  On Saturday we drove down to Milwaukee to watch the US Bank Championship.  Our friend Clay works for US Bank and has hooked us up with great corporate tickets for the last few years.  This typically gets us into a great parking lot and into the corporate tent area, which means free food, drinks, and ice cream.  Definitely a treat!  While the weather wasn't the greatest this year and rained off and on, there were a few hours that it held off and we were able to walk throughout the course and follow a number of groups of players.  Some of the names that I recognized and watched included Kenny Perry, Chad Campbell, and Bill Haas.  

Today our highlight wasn't watching golf, but meeting our friends Robert & Rachel and going to see the new Batman film, The Dark Knight.  It was ridiculously good, and we definitely recommend going to see it - though it is also definitely NOT for kids.  We were surprised it got away with a PG-13 rating with all of the violence.  

When we got home we went back to golf - watching the final round of the British Open, which Justin had recorded from earlier today.  I have to admit that Justin probably enjoyed it a bit more than I did, as I ended up nodding off a couple of times!  Watching all the golf gave Justin THE ITCH, and so after he was done setting up some new phones at church he went over to the golf range to hit a bucket of balls and do some chipping and putting.
