As our girls are now about 28 months old, they are getting better and better at “big kid” things, so we’ve been testing out new activities with them. The first one was mini golfing! We looked up some local mini golf places and how much they cost/deals, and found that with a 2 for 1 coupon we had received in the mail, all four of us could go mini golfing at Great Times Family Fun Park for $5.25 (kids 3 and under are free), which was perfect since we weren’t sure if our daughters would like it or if they would start crying/complaining/wandering off and we’d have to call it quits early.
So, we headed to the course early in the morning and had a pretty good time. The girls ended up being more fascinated by the ducks and the water features, and putting the balls in holes, than in “playing” the game correctly, but we were happy they seemed to enjoy the new adventure.
The course was alright, though one of the holes (on the “easy” side) ate balls and we lost two of our four balls in that hole, but eventually managed to get a third (and different colored) ball to pop out of the hole. So, that was pretty lame. The girls clubs were plastic and flexible and not all that helpful at getting them to actually hit the ball with it. At the end the girls were wandering off a bit and really wanted to go into the “house” that was locked on the course and ended up crying as we drug them back to the car and left.
Here some pictures of our outing at Great Times Miniature Golf:
Next we’ll post about our trip to the bowling alley! When did you start testing the waters for “big kid” activities? What should we try next?
