And I like the Crush 'n Gusher, so who knows. But what I do know, is that it's fun to think about it waaay ahead of time!
i think you two would have a blast racing each other on the tabagoon racer slides there, i could see you both racing to the top to see who could get down first or go the farthest on those slides.

its not a bad thing to day dream about between trips...thats what keeps us excited for the next trip

Sounds like the perfect slowwwwww start to your day after Parker was feeling so bad, and glad he was starting to come around! During a longer trip like this, a occasional slow day is never a bad thing.

Never tried Winter Summerland, but it looks like a lot of fun! And love the theming! Will have to give it a try sometime.
yep down days are certainly fun...we like our down water park days in between, but next trip plan to do more relaxing every few days as well, after all you are on vacation and should relaxe and not be go go go every single day.

i enjoy those courses, you should try them on your next trip.

how about this, next trip i go on, you come down and go with me and ill buy you a round of mini golf.

I remember now. We played the winter side. One of the holes had hockey sticks, pucks, and a goal.

Chapter 65. FOUR...and a live life update

before the start of the mini golf chapter i am including a little bit of our "live life" update, or (real life updates if you will)

I have been forgetting to include a pic of when we went camping for candis birthday, so i found one from my phone here is the beach up at the park where we had our lunch cookout for her.



a nice dinner out on the boat for her birthday complete with Caribbean music playing.


the kids strolling down by the waterfront.



we had some cake in the camper for her birthday complete with tiki umbrellas that we got out of drinks from dinner the kids really liked that decoration.


and this past weekend, me and the missus went to a blake shelton concert for our early anniversary gift to each other.

first was dinner out on the town


we went to check out our seats when we got there...i would say they were pretty good.


first up was jana kramer and eaten corbin.


and the next pics are when blake was out there, i only have the pics from my phone from the real camera are alot better but those are not with me.








okay now onto the chapter.

FOUR.....

well the first 9 holes anyway.

i tried to get a picture of each hole so people could get a sense of what they were like in case you have never seen them before.

each marker for the whole gives a hint as to where you need to hit the ball for your best chance to get a hole in one.

but ill leave those out as to not bore with more pics.

hole #1






hole #2


hole #3


hole #4


before hole #5 we (I) tried for a self family shot...i guess im not as good at taking those as the younger generation...but i at least have my eyebrow in it.


noelle i didnt leave her out she was knocked out cold in the stroller.


hole #5 (the hole that jenny105 remembers when she played)



hole #6 i think his form needs a little more help


hole #7 daddy shows him how to putt a little better (he got a hole in one on this one)


hole #8 i know what im talking about, i got a hole in one on this one. also showed him proper form for getting the hole in one ball out of the cup.



hole #9 the misses lining up her castle shot.



and thats the front 9.

coming up next chapter the back 9 and find out who has the highest score or lowest score if you will, and also who is the hole in one champ for the course...

we've never played the WDW mini-golf courses but that one looks really cool - can imagine that kids get a kick out iot

and thanks for the Live Life updates ... much better than the Dead Life updates. Not that I should talk - my company has Life and Non-Life insurance departments, and of course, I work in the Non-Life one

Thanks for the "real life " shots. Nice to get a glimpse of where you go camping and for other celebrations.


I have done Fantasia gardens and then one side only I think. Need to make my rounds at the others but look out.... I have no control over where the ball goes....

Maybe I can dig out my pictures of that- I did the picture per hole too. No surprise there.

The tiki umbrellas are a nice touch.

This assumes that you can hit it where you're aiming.

Looks like Candi had a great birthday, and it looks as if you had a great time at the Blake Shelton concert (our oldest went Saturday night in Chicago and they had a blast!).

I really think we need to squeeze in a round of mini-golf this trip...I've missed not going.

I would strongly suggest you NOT take a self-family portrait again. But at least you got the two good looking ones in the pic.

Totally random
I'm in the middle of reading your trip report (pg 44 to be exact) ... (little behind!)

BUT, I just read your "real life intermission" when you guys went to the state park, I LOVE THAT PARK! I've been twice (my boyfriend's family has been going for many many many many years!)
We always camp, but i've wanted to stay at that inn!!
And I'd be terrified to hike those trails when there's ice...


Well, back to reading your TR!!

Thanks for PM'ing me the info on the necklace! I hope you enjoyed your time camping at the Big Mac - I LOVE it up there! We normally camp along the west side of the state with our favorite campground being Duck Creek RV Resort, which just so happens to be right across from Michigan Adventure! We've done Ludington also this summer and stayed at Vacation Station. I have tried, but have not been successful, to try to get camping reservations at Holland State Park so I am hoping I'll have luck yet this year! Enjoy the rest of your camping season!

your welcome, that is the downtown area by the campground we really hanging out there.

ill just make sure if you are playing around me to put you in first so you dont hit me in the back of the head with your golfball

i would enjoy seeing that its been a while since i played the fantasia gardens course
