Moving on to other happier memories from vacation...we did a lot of golf while we were there...shocking, I know. My husband took our son golfing on the real golf course for the first time. It was a par 3 nine hole course and they took a cart. He let our son sit in his lap and steer the golf cart, which was the highlight of the day for him.
Here's a picture of them getting ready to leave for the course.
He is so cute carrying his clubs. And he just got that new Titleist hat and it's just a little bit big and smashes his ears. I'm convinced that it's somehow going to make his ears stick out...anyone else's kids do that? Please reassure me that his ears will be okay.
Oh and my son also thinks that the beach is a giant sand trap for him to practice in. Here he is golfing on the beach. He talked about it the whole way there that he was going to golf in the sand and he wasn't kidding. I was convinced he was going to hit some old people in the head but he didn't...and I think the old men got a kick out of watching him golf. We had more than one come up to us and comment on his natural swing.
And if that wasn't enough golfing, we went putt putting. Twice. The kids loved it and I think that my husband and I may have loved it even more. We have quite the putt putt rivalry going. I'm really good at putt putt, so I almost always win. And I did the first time, by 4 strokes! But then we went to a different course the next time and their greens were super fast and I ended up getting a 7 on one of the holes and then it was over. He won by 4 strokes that time. We'll have to have a tie breaker game this summer to determine who is really the best putt putter in the family. I already know it's me though. :) And the kids each got a hole in one too! And so did me and my husband, but no one was watching when he got his. Suspicious or not?
My little golfers.
I'm pretty sure my daughter had more fun climbing around on the huge fake rocks than she did actually golfing.
A very non conventional family portrait.
Argh! It's me cutie pie in the stocks! You can see her infamous bruise a little in this picture.
We had such a great vacation. My son told me today he doesn't want to be home, he wants to be at the beach. Mommy knows exactly how you feel, Bud. I'll be posting more this week about our trip. It was just too fun and I don't want to forget anything about it!
