HOT July Continues and Pinehurst

We are so sad to miss out on visiting Maine this summer. Can't seem to find a stretch of 6 or 7 days to make the trip. We can't travel there right before the Worlds Tournament as AA gets out of her golfing routine. After Worlds' her PGA Jr. All-Stars League starts (the 8th, Wednesday after Worlds, so only three days between) and then school begins on Tuesday August 14th! Summer goes by too quickly.
The week began with me working all five days (love it when I can work 4 - 10's occasionally). When I work five days, I can get home by 5 o'clock RH happy hour time! This time I went by myself as Ford and AA drove to Pinehurst for two days of practice rounds. They don't know the yardage yet as there was a recent course change; she is now playing on the Pinehurst #3 course.

They had pizza, salad at the Brixx restaurant which actually had a Maine beer on the list (Ford didn't order - boo!!).
They arrived home Tuesday in time for dinner and Ginger was so happy!
Wednesday and Friday continues to be her PGA Team practice at 5:30 p.m. along with two lessons weekly, plus Math tutor on Thursday's. Always busy.
Wednesday, AA went on a play-date to Ian's home, along with Jane and the Collins twins (other squad members were away at various camps). They played and had lunch together.
Plus Ian's two younger brothers (AA talked much about not having siblings at home, how much she would like that!). We always want what we can't have!
Saturday, July 14th we went to the MOSH (science and history learning museum) and saw the new exhibits, saw a reptile show with a baby alligator, read all about power plants at the JEA "Power Play" area; Mission: JAX Genius (pretty cool with autobiographies of past Jacksonville residents), National Geographic Presents Earth Explorers, (an epic adventure through six themed and immersive environments to discover new species; study animal behavior; and learn about the important roles that technology, innovation, and ingenuity play in making and documenting explorers’ discoveries. National Geographic Presents Earth Explorers will showcase the work of some of the most innovative and exciting National Geographic explorers! The six areas are Base Camp, Polar Regions, Oceans, Rain Forests, Mountains & Caves and African Savannas, bringing the unparalleled adventures of National Geographic to life.) and we attended the planetarium show about exploring Mars. Lots to do, so will plan to visit a few times each year. 
The Polar bear was part of the National Geographic exhibit on exploration:
Reptile area:
We enjoyed lunch at the Corner Taco, even though the food is good, we will try another place next time.
Sunday, besides having a lazy morning, watching Harry Potter weekend movies, we had delicious lunch of Ford's homemade red beans and rice leftovers; I made "Quaker Oats Best Meatloaf", mashed potatoes and peas for dinner while AA and her Daddy were at the last EH PGA Jr. golf match. AA's team, the Destroyers won the season. Next up is her All-Stars team matches in August.
