Another Great One

We had another super, awesome weekend! Eric went deep sea fishing in Florida, so Eli and I headed to Nicholasville to spend time with my family. We surprised my mom at work on Friday afternoon before heading to meet my grandmother and dad.

Eli was excited to see them but didn't share the same enthusiasm for eating dinner. He was HORRIBLE and cried the whole time. Luckily everyone understood that he was tired from a short nap and long drive!

After dinner we went to Hobby Lobby to get fabric for the playroom curtains, then it was off to bed to rest up for a big day with Uncle Clay!

Saturday morning we got up and went to Richmond to see Clay and Mandi! We toured Clay's new apartment and went to eat at O'Charley's before hitting up the pumpkin patch!

Eli enjoyed his very first pony ride on Jasmine! He looks a little unsure in the picture, but he talked about it all day so I think he secretly liked it!

He then spent a significant amount of time in the bouncy house where Uncle Clay helped him slide!
This picture is blurry, but I LOVE Eli's expression...pure joy my friends!

After a few pictures in front of the Hay Spider, we went to the pumpkin patch!

Of course Eli wanted the biggest one he saw,

but he finally decided on one that was a little more manageable!

Here are Clay and Mandi. I could write a whole post on young love and why I adore these two together, but it must wait. Just know they are super cute !

After a few quick pictures, we went back to the bouncy house and petted the goats before heading home.

It was truly a magical afternoon for my sweet boy! We wrapped up the evening with some wonderful chili and spent some time talking while Dad finished the curtains for Eli's playroom.

Unfortunately it wasn't a good night for Eli, so Sunday morning came too early. I didn't mind too much though because we were able to surprise my grandmother at church. She had no idea we were coming into town!

This is the worst picture of me, but since everyone else looks so good in it I took one for the team and posted it...haha!

It was a blessed weekend spending time with my family. Eli and I made it through our first night alone. While everything was ok, I sure can't wait for my hubby to be back home this afternoon!!
