We’ve just come back from a holiday which our five year old says is the first he properly remembers. Which made me think, what memories are we making for him & his sister?
Asking the children about their ‘best bits’ they always chose times we were playing games together, or swimming together. Times spent interacting with each other, and playing Crazy Golf was always near the top of their list!
It may only be Crazy Golf but the competition was on!
As a family we make a concerted effort to do things together at the weekend, but holiday time is different. The Little Shires have access to mummy & daddy and our undivided attention, 24-7 for two weeks.
On the Crazy Golf Course we’re all equal, and that’s so appealing to the Little Shires; it shows we as adults are fallible, real, fun and beatable!
Such concentration on the Crazy Golf course
Little Mister made this hole in three puts, one less than Daddy. Talk about excited!!
I’m determined to keep showing the Little Shires that Mummy & Daddy have an opposite, fun side, too, but we can also be competitive. Who knew Crazy Golf had a par rating – just like on a regular golf course?
Coach & Trainer!
Mademoiselle was always on hand to give her brother some encouragement, however Little Mister loved this hole and fishing out his ball from the Water!
The 18th Hole on the Crazy Golf course was tough, having to negotiate two hills. 39 attempts later & it goes in… shows how much he wanted to compete with us all!
After achieving a 39 OVER par, this was the best way to finish on the 18th Hole
At home we all have our ‘jobs’ – Dadtired goes to work, I am the sensible, ‘looker-afterer’ – but on holiday those job titles get blurred around the edges. The children get to see a different side of us and they love it – and so do we!
Playing Crazy Golf with the Little Shires was our time to kick back from the day-to-day and get back to what matters – spending quality time with each other.
When the daily grind becomes a churn it’s time to throw off any inhibitions & play some Crazy Golf!
I’m linking up with Fiona over at Coombemill.com. It’s a great place to discover ideas about what to do and where to go for kids who enjoy the outdoors!

I'm Tracey, nice to meet you. Mummyshire was 'born' three years ago after we moved from London to the Oxford countryside. Here I chart our journey adjusting to our new lives, the challenges of being in the countryside & surviving parenthood.
