This past Friday, the girls and I set out to Young's Dairy for a little miniature golfing fun. This is the same place we went last fall to pick out pumpkins, enjoy a hayride and their famous ice cream! I meant to take the girls earlier in the year, but you know how plans have a way of shifting, so...
I opted for the easier course. With three kids in tow, I was sure some balls would escape, so I thought I'd go light for our first go-around. It was a good decision- I could really only handle two putt-putters trying to hit the straight and narrow.
Everyone had a blast- Sarah's swing is not shy on power- perhaps just a little more control and polish and she'll get those balls in under par!
She got a little warm out there and improvised:
Ashleigh had the hang of gliding the ball on the course and then chasing it around the carpeting. I showed her at least half a dozen times how to hold her club with her thumbs up, but I had to keep reminding myself that she is 4. She has time to perfect her game before we keep score for REAL.
Speaking of keeping score- we had the cutest little volunteer that was very happy to do her job.
So was the picture lady in the cowgirl hat:
A good first putt-putt day- highly recommended and the reward: ice cream of course! You'll just have to trust me, we really enjoyed the latter.
