Dino Mini Golf

Last Sunday we went to a close vacation spot and spent the night. We left right after church and did a little shopping, saw a show and then took C mini golfing at the Dinosaur place. We saw this place last year on vacation, but we didn't golf last year. C has remembered it and has talked about it frequently. When we left church we told him that we'd play golf at the Dinosaur place, BUT that it would be dark before we'd go. That was all C could think about the rest of the day. Poor little guy, we told him we'd take him but we made him wait until 10:30 p.m. to play. J decided since it was Father's Day he wanted to see a show, so we played after the show. I can see that my personality is starting to show in C because he's becoming a worry wart/high strung when he's got something he wants to do. All through the show he worried that the golf place would be closed. It was all he could talk about. When we finally got there it was like he had waited for this for so long that he didn't know how to control himself. It also didn't help that we were there from 10:30 to 11:30, so he was really tired. By the time we got to the last hole he was so tired and really high strung. He kept trying to get his ball in the 18th hole and I finally told him to just drop it in. We're not really for sure what happend, but somehow he kept falling and rolling around on the ground during this time. At this point all J and I could do was laugh at him, which C does not like to be laughed at. Finally he got his ball in the 18th hole and then ran over to a hole on a different course and waited for his ball to pop out. It was a little pitiful, but J and I really started laughing. I'll never forget the look on his face when I told him his ball wasn't coming back. He got really upset because there was a hole onthe other course that he wanted to play. Luckily J hadn't putted his ball in yet, so we took it and played the hole ont he other course. That seemed to satisfy C so then we snapped a few more pictures and headed back to our room.
