An Outing for the Men

Last week Mr. Coyote received an invitation in the mail from Poppa Coyote:


While the ladies are enjoying Miss Coyote’s wedding shower…What is a man to do to pass the time??? Hmmmmm…What to do…What to do…Well, the shower just HAPPENS to be at a golf course! Pretty clever of me, eh? If you would like to join me for 9 holes of golf, please RSVP so that I can make a tee time!

The idea first popped into my dad’s head when Mr. Coyote’s father mentioned that he would be making the three-hour drive north with Mr. Coyote’s mom and sister for my bridal shower. As the RSVPs trickled in, Poppa Coyote noticed that there might be some other guys (out of town and local) that would be looking for something to do while the ladies were occupied with the shower. So a few weeks ago he printed out the awesome photo cards seen above and extended the invitation to all of the husbands and significant others on the list.

I think this is a such a great idea. While us ladies are inside playing silly shower games and fawning over gifts, the boys will be right outside practicing their swing and hunting gophers! Or something like that. I don’t know much about golf except what I learned from Caddyshack:

Now here’s hoping the weather holds out!

    Go coyote dad! I love when family gets involved in a great idea like that. I feel bad for my FI, he had a nice lunch plan with my dad and his step-dad to eat mussels and watch sports but somehow he and his step dad got stuck with kids that didn’t want to go to the shower and random men that came with my Spanish side of the family. I owed him big for that but he was a trooper and went along with it. Definitely good and nice to have a plan B for the guys since they are so nice to drive their ladies to the shower.

    Love this idea and I think it is really sweet of your dad to take it upon himself to organize the golf outing!

    this is SO cute! My FH is going to arrange a golf outing while us ladies are sunning ourselves the day before the wedding and relaxing but it would have been so nice if one of the dads had volunteered!
