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


Looks like you got your best features!


Nice work fellas!
the kids liked the tiki umbrellas as well, the second night we lit it for the rest of the cake, we almost burned down the umbrellas but parker pointed it out before it went up

ohh of course the ball always goes where i am it.

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.
we had a blast at the concert, that was the one we went to...where were his seats?

yep as you said i got the cutest ones in the picture.

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!!
not a problem, thanks for reading along, and

we usually go turkey run in the fall each year, but took the last few years off there...we enjoy that park a bunch, and the inn is alot of fun, although we like the one at pokagon alot more...

it was a little scary with all the ice, but i was glad we did it.

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...glad i could help.

we had a blast at mackinaw, it is such a fun place to visit.

never really camped that far up in the state, we usually just go to south haven, we have been up there 4 times this summer already.

we used to camp at holland when i was little now we found a great spot in south haven.

Nice update! The Blake Shelton concert looks like a lot of fun, and nice birthday celebration for Candi!

WinterSummerland looks like a lot of fun, and some of those holes are pretty neat. I guess we need to have a little friendly competition there sometime!

I went to Western Michigan University, you would think I would have been to South Haven more one time. But the one summer I spent in Kalamazoo I only spent one beach day there.

So, after being gone from the DIS for quite awhile, I'm back and have caught up on your TR!! I love reading about how much fun you all had, but am definitely sorry to read that Parker was sick a couple days! It was good to read he recovered quickly!

The sing along with Chip and Dale at Fort Wilderness, is that a nightly thing, do you know? Thinking that may be something we need to check out when we're there next month! Our little one would love it! We have a Hoop Dee Doo reservation one night so we'll be in the area!

That was a mighty fine looking pearl your wife got at the pick a pearl!! That's my husband's favorite thing to do in World Showcase! He would spend hours there if he could! The necklace is really pretty, as well!! I think it's so sweet you gave it to her before your trip so she could get a pearl for it!!

There was more I wanted to comment on, but I read so much I can't remember what all I wanted to say!! Looking forward to more though!!

hey glad to see you around again. yep the sing along is each night...the first of the month they have a schedule of what movies are playing...i found it before on the dis but not sure what thread it was located in.

that was the first time we did the pearl, i cant wait to let her do it again, or let noelle do it when she gets a little older...

thanks for reading along.

Chapter 66. The back 9

Chapter 66. The back 9

We continue on with hole number 9 which is not the back 9 but i am not sure if i posted this one yet or not so here it is...parker showing how when the ball rolls back down the hill toward you, you just push it up to ramp to get it where you need it to go.


#10



#11 mom? is this how you hold the putter again.



#12 this got a there is a pole in the middle of it?



#13 this was one of his favorite holes the snowman shot water out and got you wet, (well if you wanted to you could get wet.



looks like my group wanted to get wet.



which woke up a sleepy girl and wondered why she wasnt in the water having fun.



#14 getting some more help from mom lining it up to get a hole in one chance.


#15
lots of candy on this one.


#16

we had a kick out of this one with santas feet, he kept knocking the balls back



#17
if you hit this one under the present mickey popped out.



#18 was pretty easy so once parker hit a hole in one himself



we let him repeat his feat with our turns...he liked hte santa message that played on the screen after it.



and finishing off hte hole in one for dad.



even though he threw both of candis and my balls into the opening.



a few shots of the other side of the course when we finished up.





when you are done you are greeted with a candy cane


now for what we all read along to see...the final score.

well i had the low score but parker had more hole in ones...which he was thrilled to find out.


and yes his hole in ones were legit ones, no cheating on hole in ones.

shaving of points on the higher scores like turing a 5 to a 4 or giving a second chance on a par shot that almost went in, thats all good.


next chapter we investigate. another side of DTD

Can't believe they didn't have a hole with a Fauntleroy coming out the top of a present.............
