Golfing with Uncle Eric

When we were camping at Edgewood we had to make several trips by the DeGray Golf course and it caught MC's eye.  She asked a million questions every time we went by and I had to tell her that Mommy doesn't know much about golf at all. I told her Uncle Eric did and that fascinated her. She asked me if he might take her sometime so I told her to ask him.  The very next time she saw him she asked and he set up a date to take her that Sunday to play.  She was beyond excited and couldn't hardly wait the day and half she till it was Sunday.  

First Ride in a Golf Cart!!!

 She was standoffish at first and wanted to watch Uncle Eric hit a few balls; but by Hole #2 she was ready to give it a try!!!
.LOVE this picture!!!!

 Oh so close...went right over the hole!
 Then she made it!! And she was so excited as was her mommy!
 Picture Stop at Hole #5
 My little she is one of the VERY few if the NOT ONLY person sporting a Justin Bieber shirt on the course!
 She caught on much quicker than I expected and actually did a good job!
 When she saw the sand trap...she coudn't wait to get her ball in it.
 Uncle Eric tried to explain that golfers really didn't want to get their ball in the sand but thought it was the coolest!
 Sometimes she thought it was just fun to hit the ball a hundred times...Uncle Eric was a sport in the heat and humidity.  He kept telling her.... If I didn't know better I would think you were missing that hole on purpose!
She wanted to watch every hit Uncle Eric make.

She had a great time and can't wait to play again.  On the ride home I asked her what her favorite part was and she said she liked it when Uncle Eric hit the ball in the water...both times....CRACKED ME UP!!!
