Mini-Golf with Emily

Last year we took Emily mini-golfing and although she was young and I thought she'd lose interest after a couple of holes, she loved it.   So we decided it would be fun to do an encore......especially considering this is the last year the place will be open.  The people who own it are retiring and selling it.  They seem doubtful that any new owners will keep the property going as a mini-golf place.

This year we wisely bought the "Fun Pass" which included our round of mini-golf, an ice cream, and tokens in the arcade.

It cracks me up that we all get to "tee off" but Emily must "putt out" for all of us!



Figuring out the correct way to hold your hands on the golf club was a challenge, but Emily was very patient with Memere's instructions.



We sat on a bench for a bit to let another couple "play through".


And also for a little rest with Pepere.


After the golfing, a nice treat at the Ice Cream Shoppe is always well deserved.


Emily posed to show Pepere  how she can put her tongue through the hole where she lost her first tooth.


Pepere and Emily duke it out on the "Whack-A-Mole" in the arcade.


All the tickets we won went, of course, in Emily's stash.   She got two bracelets, two rings and a ring pop!



Emily's favorite game was the Spider Web

My gosh, Emily is getting SO big and just gets prettier and prettier. I've been looking for a fun mini-golf here, but the only ones we have are INdoors! Ugh! That takes the fun right out of it. Looks like you had a lovely day with your lovely family :) Hugs!

That photo of you and Emily side by side really highlights the family resemblance!

Looks like you had a great time!
