Dad's Day

Ah, putt-putt. 
What a fun, simple, everyone-can-play-and-get-along way to spend Father's Day.  I grabbed my putter, slung my camera bag on my back, and turned around to discover.....  the kids had already started.  And trying to stop them at any point to get a picture was not going to happen.  So here is a picture version (with minimal words) of our Father's Day Outing at Country Corners Miniature Golf. 


Just gotta love the attempt to be in front of the camera for once:
But we did manage to capture a semi-decent one.

This putt-putt course is out in the middle of nowhere and is run by a lovely retired couple who just wanted something to do.  What a great way to spend retirement - watching families and friends come together and laugh over a game of golf.

One of the highlights of the day was also a great surprise.  
All putt-putt games that day were free of charge!!  A local life insurance company sponsored the day by paying for the games AND they even provided free water, snacks, and giveaways to all players - with special freebies just for dads! 
We continued celebrating this special man in our lives at home with boxes of cereal, Faygo pop, and yummy buttermints meant just for him.  Pinky swear.  It hardly seems enough but what can you really do or give the man in your life, the father of your children, to show your appreciation for all the tireless hours of work and driving, chores and homework reviewing, house repairing and yard work, and side jobs that he does?   
Well, I'm not sure what is enough but I hope he knows how much we love him.
Happy Father's Day!
