Atlanta Trip : Day Two

We woke up this morning and headed downtown after breakfast.  We wanted to do a little shopping and sightseeing, so we walked to the CNN Center where Eli and Eric racked up on some Braves gear.  I was pretty hungry at that point and knew that walking in the GA heat would throw me over the edge, so we ate a quick bite in food court before heading to IKEA.

Eli fell asleep for about 10 second on the way, but was up as soon as we pulled into the parking lot. Ha!  We found a few small things for around the house, and decided to hit up Target before heading to the game. I had a gift card I wanted to use, but of course Eli is the only one who ended  up with anything!  

Funny story, my mom sat in Eli's red slushy so her time in Target was spent searching for tide wipes...ha! Oh yeah, and my dad proceed to remove the stain from her rump...IN PUBLIC!!  I thought Eric and I would die from laughing!


Next it was off to the game, and it was hotter than "you know what."  Luckily, my husband is a genius and bought club level seats.  We all took turns going into the air conditioning!



After a few innings Eli was getting rowdy, so we took him to the SkyPark where he could run some bases and get energy out.  



It's at the top level of Turner Field and has fun activities sponsored by Coke.  Plus, it overlooks the Atlanta skyline,  so you know we took advantage of getting pictures!




We ended up getting a snack before joining Eric back in the stands.  We watched a few more innings and sang "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" before hitting up the Skydeck one final time!



We ended up leaving the game a little early which sucked when we found out that Chipper Jones hit a game winning home run!!  After driving around for about 2 hours, we gave up on finding a place to eat.  Now we're munching on fast food...BLAH...and getting ready for tomorrow!

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, soccer...you 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

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
