Fore!

Ben and his caddy Vicki ready to tee off.

Ben "Hogan" Waddell playing through!

Just like his daddy, Ben keeps his beverages cold in a Playmate cooler.

Ben took first place this year. But here's the real reward for the work put into this creation.

The two costume designers: Nurse Stacey on the left and Nurse Vicki on the right. Stacey even used her day off to see Ben trick or treat at his school!

That is the Caddyshack gopher which sings and dances to the theme song. He was a big hit with the crowd (and Ben).

We ran into a biker gang. These ladies are most of the administrative staff at the Washington Center. Note the "vintage" bikes in the background.

Look! A life-size whoopie cushion complete with sound! Note the caution tape.

This is one happy golfer.

Oh my God that is amazing! I guess you are playing the part of Ty Webb and Ben is playing the role of Danny Noonan? :)

That's awesome Bennie! Major props to Nurse Stacey and Nurse Vicki for a spectacular costume!

I think Ben is more of the Rodney Dangerfield character since he's made us laugh so much this week!

Awwwwww man! Totally freakin' awesome.

Ben is the man, no question about it.

I feel like throwing my clubs in the back and me and him hitting the front 9!

I'll bring him back before dark

That is fantastic!.. simply awesome.

Gretchen said...

This is so amazing! I love it. We need to borrow your nurses for Simon next year!!

I love him in the vest and big shoes :)

Ben and Bennie said...

Yeah, those were a pair of my golf shoes. He looked more like "Dorf" (the old Tim Conway character - ask Jim) than "Tiger." He's always looked so very handsome in a sweater vest!

Great costume. Looks like fun had by all.

Mark said...

Best Costume Ever. And you can tell Ben was reveling in all that awesomeness. Big props to Nurses Stacey and Vicki, and to Ben for pulling it off.

Gretchen said...

I know Dorf. I love when Conway does him. :) Simon had a sweater vest this spring too and he looked amazing in it. Maybe our boys are just dapper gentlemen!!
