That Be Pirate Mini Golf

For this post, Dad actually did some research before making this claim: Myrtle Beach is the mini golf capitol of the world! There are over 45 courses within a 20 mile radius. (See info here).

Ty fancies himself quite the expert at mini golf and we have showcased some of his past outings here. So it was fitting that we explored several courses during our trip including this Treasure Island themed course that included some water hazards even. He managed to score a few birdies and even a hole-in-one along the way.

Captain Ty

We took a day trip down to Charleston on Father's Day to visit with Ty's grandfather who just happened to be working there now. During our visit we went to the aquarium and took a sailboat out into the harbor for a cruise.

After helping raise the sails, our veteran of the high seas took the wheel to steer the schooner. In this photo however he is facing towards the stern of the boat. The helpful crew provided him with a saddle to sit up and see over the deck to steer the correct way. Ty did a great job keeping us away from a looming thunderstorm.

Beach Boy

We are staying at a resort right along the Atlantic Ocean in Myrtle Beach. Ty couldn't wait to get his toes in the sand and head into the surf. He giggled as the waves crashed around him, but wasn't ready to go in the deeper water. He was content to sit along the beach and build sand castles with Dad though.

Carolina on My Mind

Headed out of AUS bound for MYR to begin our first trip of the summer. Ty stands here by our gate wearing a junior TSA badge that one of the security guards gave to him. 

And a happy Father's Day out there to all the Dad readers of our blog. Hope you had a special one like we did.

Summer is Here - Water Fight!

Ty might be at a slight disadvantage here. However he didn't mind getting wet.

He gathered down the street with some boys from the neighborhood and found a clever way to stay cool as the Texas summer has begun with triple digit temperatures already.

Kids Day at the Ballpark

Ty and Dad took in a day game at the Dell Diamond last weekend to see the Round Rock Express. For the day games, they set up all sorts of activities outside in the parking lot for kids and Ty had a blast. 

We had great seats behind the dugout on the third base side. Ty had his glove ready in the hopes of catching a foul ball. No such luck on that, but Dad caught a t-shirt that was fired into the stands.
