Trying to find the perfect family outing can be difficult, so I have a hot tip for you, Let's go to the driving range.

Last week, my family and I were looking for something fun to do. I thought why not hit some balls at the driving range.

I haven't played golf in a few years, so I was a little rusty. But my kids swung those clubs like they have done it before. They even knew to yell fore. That was a really funny moment that and when my oldest daughter out hit me.

We didn't spend a lot of money, since a large bucket of balls was only $7, and we each had our own bucket. My wife being the golfer that she is, had no problem getting back into the swing of things. Me trying to launch them ever shot ended up on the ground a few times.

We have never done this as a family. It made for one of the most entertaining nights out as a family. It wasn't very expensive and the kids want to go again. That is the perfect sign that you made a good choice.
