This morning we all went to the Castro Valley farmers' market. What we didn't realize is that it's rodeo season again and Castro Valley was hosting the parade to welcome the start of the rodeo. Nor did we realize that the staging ground for the parade floats and horses was in the same BART parking lot as the market. Traffic and parking was trickier than usual but we did manage to find a spot and get our vegetables.
Afterwards we had to go back into Hayward and cut across to the backside of Castro Valley boulevard via Grove and Foothill. Even with the traffic congestion due to the parade, the mini golf place was very busy. There was one or two birthday parties going on as well as a dozen or so families with children around Sean's age. Nonetheless we had no problem signing in.
The course was one of the hardest ones I've played. Ian and I were out of pratice and Sean had never played. Also, I quickly found that being pregnant makes putting difficult. I couldn't align the putter against my hips as I should have because Harriet was in the way. We decided not to keep score, to let Sean place his ball where ever he wanted on the course and to do light tossing of the ball when necessary. We dubbed this version "Hyper Mulligan Rules." Not keeping score made for a stress free and fun day.
