I think I figured out the best gift for husband’s gift for years to come. A golf centered trip! I booked a resort an hour away from our home two weeks ago because it was recommended by a colleague, it has 2 18-holes golf course, and the hotel is kid friendly. It totally surprised me this winning combo how easy it was, and everyone was happy.
We arrived 10:30am, after a quick check-in (rooms not ready yet), girls hit to the play area with a zipline and small playground. When they got bored with that, they went to the pool.
meanwhile grandma and me just relaxed by the pool, while hubby went to play golf. We had an early dinner and hubby and I went to the spa for a foot massage. It was so comfortable that I fell asleep. Hubby had to wake me up to go back to the room. I guess the lack of sleep the night before, witnessing Argentina’s masterful play (did I tell you I hold Argentina’s passport? :lol:), also contributed to my tiredness. I slept so well that night.
I woke up with this mountain view. I stayed in bed for a while before getting up. Hubby went to have breakfast early before his T time at 7am.
After a long meditation session in my room, I went to the gym for 45 min on the treadmill and 30 min strength training. I was ready to have breakfast. Sofia joined me for another round as she already had breakfast with grandma earlier. Then Lizzy and grandma also joined us for some more fruit. The breakfast buffet was very nice, I really enjoyed the abundance of vegetables and tofu dishes.
Girls play more at the water park
it was not big but entertaining nevertheless for the girls
Daddy got back before check out time. It was a short trip but so nice to be outside of the city for a while. The air was so fresh and seeing the greens made me happy.
The work issue is almost behind me. I am hopeful God has better plans for me. 🙂

I am glad the work issue is almost behind you. It sounded really stressful!
This sounds like a perfect gift for a golfer! My husband is a HUGE golfer. He doesn’t golf as much now that we have kids so I give him the “gift of time” for his birthday and father’s day and encourage him to golf a round. I would like him to plan a guys golf trip in 2023 now that our kids are at more manageable ages. The challenge is that his friends are truly horrible planners. They say they want to do something but no one can get their act together. I told him us wives should just take it over and plan it for them! I wish that I liked golf but I didn’t start playing until I met Phil and I am horrible and don’t have the patience to learn. I hope that our boys take an interest in golf. Phil has many happy memories of golfing w/ his dad. We have a little golf set for the boys but so far Paul does not show any natural ability. 😉 He must take after his mom. 🙂
I also don’t find it as fun as running, too technical for a hobbie. Sometimes I just play to be outdoor with him.
What a great idea – I think experiential gifts are often the very best option! And the girls look like they had such a fun time.
This is a great idea. I struggle soooo much finding things to get for gifts for my husband too. He is so picky and doesn’t have many hobbies that really need “stuff”. He also is rather simplistic in many ways- doesn’t want all sorts of random extra things. He tends to like what he likes and that’s it- no need for getting or trying different things really, if that makes sense. The idea of an experience gift is a fun one for sure.
