Note from Emily’s mom: Norm had gotten a Groupon deal for Golfland awhile back and it was expiring soon. The week we decided to go (and the few weeks before it), I was not feeling that great. We also miscalculated the time for dinner, so I skipped out on the girls’ first time mini-golfing. But they had a ton of fun as Norm’s brother and sis-in-law went with them. I think it was only $20, and they got to all golf, plus 60 tokens for the arcade, which they didn’t even finish using.

That’s from waiting in line to get into Golfland.

That’s me and Jeh-Jeh (Chinese for older sister). We are waiting in line for our turn.

That’s Jeh-Jeh. She’s swinging the club.

That’s Uncle Bakkie (nickname for Norm’s brother) teaching me how to do it.

That’s Jeh-Jeh and Uncle Bakkie.

That’s me hitting the ball into the hole.

Jeh-Jeh wanted to do it again.

Auntie Bonnie was hitting the ball too.

Jeh-Jeh and her golf ball.

That’s me and my jacket because it was sprinkling. Just a little rain.

Jeh-Jeh was taking a picture again.

We are sitting with the house.

Jeh-Jeh’s swinging the club, I think.

We are playing air hockey.

I was playing air hockey again.

Jeh-Jeh was still playing air hockey.

Then, we were playing skee ball.

I was watching and Jeh-Jeh was playing.

We got a lot of tickets.

That’s putting the money in.

That’s how many tickets we had.

Daddy took a picture of us with our stuff prize.

Field Trip: In-N-Out Burger

by Emily Moy

Note from Emily’s mom: We went on a field trip with our homeschool group to In-N-Out Burger. There were 20+ kids and adults. They gave us a little history of In-N-Out. It started in 1948 in California in a 10-ft square space. Now they are in 281 locations (5 states). We, then, split up into 2 groups, and got a tour of the restaurant. Afterwards, they treated us to a meal, although it was a little odd to eat a burger at 10am. Photos below are taken by Melody (except for the ones where she’s in the photo), and captions are by Emily. Extra commentary by Emily’s mom.

This is the cleaning stuff.

That is all the clothes for changing.

The drink, like drinks we have in our refrigerator. (We don’t have drinks like these in our refrigerator. We have milk, orange juice, pomegranate blueberry juice, ginger ale, and sometimes Starbucks Frappuccinos.)

Boxes of tomatoes

That is potato to cook.

That’s lettuce.

He’s showing us tomatoes.

He showed us how to slice tomatoes.

That’s all the tomatoes.

That’s lettuce. (They also take off the spine when cutting up the lettuce for the burgers.)

That’s Jeh-Jeh wash her hands. (Jeh-Jeh is Chinese for ‘big sister.’)

She mush, mush, mush, mushed it. (There was no mushing involved. This contraption slices up the potatoes into fries. I can go for animal-style fries right now.)

That’s A and Melody drink.

That’s us draw and drink. (Everyone got coloring books, crayons, an associate name tag, hats, and a free meal.)

We do picture with a hat…a crazy hat. (The hats weren’t too crazy. The girls, maybe. 😉 )

What fun field trip(s) have you (or your kids) been on recently?
