a mini golf birthday!

David pretty much had the best birthday. His party was the Saturday before, but his actual birthday? That was a pretty epic one. We went to a new fun park with Nonna and Lena... She treated all the kids to actual kid's meals at McDonald's and the kiddie cones they do there?! Amazing. Then he swam all afternoon in the pool... followed by mini golf and then Panera Bread for his favorite bagels. This kid was living the dream. Five is where it's at.

We haven't really done mini golf before. The kids did a hole or two on the cruise in the fall but actually gone and paid money to golf? Nope. The attendant was kind enough to let us go in having only paid for the kids because let's be honest, there was no way Matt or I were golfing. We went to Lost Treasure Golf down in the middle of tourist country because we were really going for the schmaltz here. 

Letty was the only one who actually tried to play, even though she credited herself with a hole in one on every hole. David and Dom just wanted to plunk their balls into the hole (come on Matt, keep your mind out of the gutter) and then continue on to see what lay at the next one. Always looking ahead those two, never savoring the moment...
We were so thankful that we had the entire place to ourselves because they were loud... and inpatient... and well... just, thank God.
