Thank you Wally Wagner for the frrrreeeeeee pony rides last week! We love "Kids Week" at our local grocery store. I'm not sure how long he's been offering this, but for as long as I've had kids we've been enjoying it (well at least a handful of times anyways...most years it seemed like more hassle than it was worth...but this year I took the younger half of our herd up for their first pony rides. Everyone loved it, for sure. (and did I mention a free hot dog and pop to wash it all down?!) Yippee Cayaaaaah!
Oh and PUTT, PUTT.
Hope you don't mind me sharing fun new things we're finding to do this summer...along those same lines of freeeeee, or at least cheap. That's how we roll.
I'd heard rumors of a new miniature golf course over in St. Marys that was just built last year. I googled it, and sure enough it's completed and was built thanks to their wonderful taxpayers (and I'm guessing some generous donations) smack dab in the middle of their K.C. Geiger park. I'm not kidding...it's beautiful. And it's only $1 for kids 12 and under to golf 18 holes. ($2 for adults). It's open daily 2-9 pm and weekends noon-9p (I think) and has an attendant on duty. ("Like" it on Facebook for more accurate details/directions...St. Marys Miniature Golf). It's super-gorgeously landscaped with water features, and a rock mountain in the center...just amazing! And it's in the heart of their park full of ball diamonds, a playground, basketball courts, volleyball and tennis, even a picnic shelter. Something for everyone! We will definitely be revisiting this park.
