Austin Bucket List: Peter Pan Putt Putt and Mini Golf!

I generally spend my summers crossing things off of my Austin Bucket List, and this summer was no exception. Now that Ava is older, and since we've had a relatively mild summer compared to usual, we crossed off one of our most anticipated items when we visited Austin's famed Peter Pan Mini Golf & Putt Putt Course this past week!

First and foremost, if you've been putting off visiting due to the heat, know that while it does warm up, they are open starting at 9 a.m., and there is a ton of foliage providing shade even on those hot summer mornings. We arrived around 10 a.m., and managed to stay for about two hours when you count our snow cone break before we were too hot to hang. Not too bad at all, considering it is mid-August!

One of the most awesome things about the course - other than the fact that it is BYOB (!!) - is all the fantastic themed decor. From the pirate at the entrance, to the Peter Pan and Tinkerbell holes, and the other awesomely painted holes (check out the portly pig and the dynamic dinosaur!), your child is sure to be visually entertained, even if their golf skills are a bit lacking. Poor Ava didn't stand a chance, seeing as how I was attempting to demonstrate how to swing a golf club (it was her first time using one!) while wearing Jackson and he kept moving his head trying to see what I was doing and blocking my view. I'm pretty sure I said, "Well that's an example of what NOT to do..." multiple times, while fishing golf balls out of the bushes...oops.
