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 Two...it 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!
