Vacation 2012 - Day Two

I forgot to mention in my last post that we went to Fort Walton Beach, Florida with Eric's parents who were traveling with the Crittenden County Baseball team. I can not tell you what a blessing it was to go on this trip; I am truly grateful!!

Ok, so about Day was Eric's 28th Birthday!! We woke up, ate a wonderful breakfast and headed to the the first JV game of the week. It was overcast which made it pleasant for us fans!

As you can see, Eli enjoyed cheering on Colby. He played his own little game of baseball, ate ten million Popsicle, and kept us pretty busy getting into everything.

Below he is with Daddy right after getting into a nest of fire ants. Funny story, Eli didn't get bitten (stung) but when Eric handed him to me, one jumped off his shoe unto my arm...I still have a scar!

We opted not to stay with Eric's parents for the second game. Instead, we headed back to condo to eat lunch and hit the beach. The timing really was perfect because the sun ended up coming out. I didn't take the camera to the beach, but it was better that way. Eli wasn't too thrilled about the ocean at first, and I didn't want to scare him for the rest of the week. Needless to say, we ended up at the pool!

After an afternoon of soaking up the sun, we came in and cleaned up for Eric's birthday dinner at The Boat House in Destin. Of course a night out wouldn't be complete without a photo session before hand.

It wouldn't be a Watson Family Photo if Eli was acting out...ha! With his hair still wet I think he looks like "Slick Willy."
The place we ate had LIVE entertainment which was a little over the top for the high school boys. However, Eric and I thoroughly enjoyed his rendition of "Red Solo Cup" entitled, "Double D Cups." Haha!

One last picture of my boys before heading back to the condo for ice-cream and cake!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
