I Had The Best Day With You

We were all off work today because of Martin Luther King Day, so I took the kids to Ralphie's Fun Center for a fun day while Eric went bird hunting.

After a drive-thru lunch, we headed to Glasgow to get $10 wristbands for an afternoon of fun.

We started with a ton fun on the bouncy houses.  They played forever with each other, and I couldn't help but get gushy at how precious it is that they've become little playmates and not just siblings.

After the bouncy houses, we decided to try our luck with roller-skating.  Bad idea.  It took fifteen minutes to get everyone laced up and ready. I was too cheap to rent the little skate-mate, so I tried to hold both kids up on my one.  I'm not being dramatic when I say that lasted all of thirty seconds.

Some sweet little girl offered to loan Eli her skate-mate, so that helped a bit.  Nonetheless, The Watson children no not have skating skills.  We made it about a third of the way around the rink before we threw in the towel and headed for bowling.

Eli loved to bowl, and honestly does a pretty good job.  

This was Ellie's first time bowling, so we had to commemorate the occasion with a photo opt.

The sweetest part of bowling was watching Eli help Ellie.  Every time it was her turn, he would help her carry the ball to the lane and then she would push it down to the pins.  

I don't want to brag or anything, but bowling went way better than skating.  My kids have skills...look at those scores. Haha!

Next was glow golf.  Eli played every hole, but after two, Ellie was done.  

We stopped for snack next, and enjoyed Slush Puppies and Cotten Candy.  I didn't take any picture, but next we tried our hands at Time Freak.  It was so much fun!

Before leaving, we did another turn on the bouncy houses before heading back to Bowling Green.  After a quick trip to Wal-Mart for groceries and gifts, we headed to a birthday party at Cheerville!

It was such a fun day with the kids.  I love getting so spend time with them and do fun things.

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
