Florida Day 5: Meetings and Mini-Golf

Monday was the start of my Pizza Ranch meetings. I spent the day listening to speakers, talking to franchisees and managers and attending the vendor fair. While I was in meetings, the rest of the family went miniature golfing. This was Ryan's first time mini-golfing and he did great! Adam reported that he had 2 legitimate hole-in-ones and 2 birdies. They went to Disney's Winter Summerland course, so this would explain the candy canes and snowmen.

They cooled off in the afternoon with another swim at the pool. Cohen enjoys the water once he's in and especially likes being pulled through the water toward you. Ryan's favorite thing is jumping off the side. He especially liked yelling "1 for the money, 2 for the show, 3 to get comes [various Super Hero name]!"

In the evening, Adam attended the Awards Banquet with me while the boys hung out with Adam's parents. I hope they enjoyed their McDonalds because we had a phenomenal meal! The funny thing is, from the whole fancy night, this is the only picture I took:
After dinner and awards, we heard from inspirational speaker, Aaron Thomas. He spoke about his family's response to the tragedies in their lives...first the F5 tornado that destroyed their hometown of Parkersburg and then the fatal shooting of his father, legendary football coach Ed Thomas. It was an amazing story and we all appreciated his words.

I think Ryan and Cohen enjoyed their night with Grandpa and Grandma and we were grateful for them being willing to watch the boys. It ended up being a late night but we enjoyed the chance to socialize, celebrate Pizza Ranch's 30 years and hear from a great speaker.
