“I survived a week with my Dad” Chapter 11

Friday Fun

No sleeping in today, DH & I have a golf date this morning.   Amazingly the kids are showing signs of life, I really thought they’d sleep a bit longer.  That’s ok, it lets us lay down the ground rules with them. The last few trips we’ve let them wander/hang out around the resort while we played golf, this time, they’re getting a little more freedom.  Since DD has done so well, and we’re “next to” Epcot, we’re giving them the option to go to the park this morning. They must stay together, no fighting, and if either one wants to leave, they both leave.  It’s really amazing how much better they seem to get along, when we’re not around!

The valet pulls my truck around front and DH & I are off to play our “home course”, LBV (Lake Bueana Vista Golf Course at Saratoga Springs Resort). We had really wanted to play here in June, but they closed the course a couple of weeks before our trip to redo the greens & tee boxes.   So now we get to play on a brand new course. It’s a very pretty course, I wish my golf game matched it.  The cousre starts at Saratoga Springs Resort, winds thru Old Key West Resort and even comes up by Port Orleans Resort.

Let’s just say what little ability/talent I do have, seems to have been on vacation today.   The only good hole was the one I was most scared of.  There is a beautiful par 3, Island Green (#6 or 7) I have a mental block when it comes to water on the golf course, I usually tend to land in it.   Disney Magic time! I clear the water  ……….. and land in the sand trap short of the green  ……but the Disney Magic came back and I had a great shot out of the sand with a short putt for par. I don’t get many pars when I play, so this was a good hole!   

Shortly after this, the entire week caught up with me. OMG, I was so tired, so sore, so completely drained of energy. I don’t know how I made it through the rest of the round. The golf wasn’t pretty, but at least the course was. Here’s a view of Saratoga Springs Resort from the course:

It was a great morning; the weather was fantastic, the course was beautiful and the company was perfect.

The kids seemed to be having a good time. Throughout our golf round we got text messages and pictures of where they were. They rode Test Track (again) Mission Space Orange, Soarin’, Maelstrom & Grand Fiesta Tour (boat ride in Mexico, better but still not good) on their way back to Boardwalk Villas they stopped at the Beach Club and got themselves lunch at Hurricane Hannah’s, then hung out at BWV’s Community Hall.

We all met back at the room around 3:30pm and headed down to Luna pool. Today was our warmest day so I had promised we could go to the pool and they could tryout the Scary Clown Slide.  I managed to make it to the hot tub and hoped that a Captain’s Mai Tai would make me feel better … It helped a little .   DH & the kids tried out the slide and said it was “ok”. We were all surpised at how small the pool actually was, from the walkway & pictures it had looked bigger .  The Luna hot tub is bigger than the quiet pools’, but wasn’t as hot. It was more like a “warm tub”  which wasn’t all that enjoyable for me. 

Dad called to let me know they made it back home. Their flight had been delayed out of Sanford, so getting up so early was for nothing. Unfortunately Jackies cat was sick when they got home and a family friend has passed away so as soon as they got back, they were at the vet and the funeral home for the visitation.   Not the best way to end a vacation, but he said they had a wonderful time with us at Disney.

We all went back to the room to rest and change before dinner. Tonight we’re going back to Cape May Cafe, this time for their Clam Bake (yum!)

Next up: Our last night at the world
