Vacation: Day Four

It was a bit cloudy this morning, but that didn't stop us from hitting the beach.  As I mentioned yesterday, the tide comes in early in morning, so the water is quite rough when we first make it out.  

I'll spare you the blow by blow of each day, because DUH, that's just boring.  There are only so many things that you can do at the beach - swim, build sandcastle, throw sand, dig holes, burry your feet.  Yep, that sums it up. 

Ellie was a little champ and napped every day, so that was nice.  See..short and sweet!

Clay and Mandi fixed us dinner in the condo and then we headed out to play put-put.  Ya'll this is an old school course that probably hasn't been updated since the 1960s, and it's perfect for us because it's not crowded which means we're not embarrassed every thirty seconds when someone has a melt down.  

That someone being this little stinker pictured above! It was hot, it was bedtime, and she wasn't having any of it.  I think everyone had a good time, but I'm not 100% positive because I was too busy chasing Ellie, her golf ball, or the club she had just thrown…good times, ya'll!

Eli, on the other hand, took it very seriously like it was the Junior PGA or something.  Ha!  Bless his little blonde heart.  He has such a competitive spirit. 

After eighteen holes of pure chaos- I mean family fun - we decided to attempt getting ice cream on the beach.  Naturally, both kids were little angels and even let us take a family photo. It's not a framer, but no one is having a meltdown.  I don't know about you, but that sounds like a success to me!

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
