Checking in live with a sweet sunburn and about 70 yellow fly bites. Florida bugs are no joke, y’all.
Friday afternoon, Sheff had a baseball game. They squeaked by with a win – leaving them undefeated and with the best record in 2A. Sheff had two amazing defensive plays, getting his first out at second! He stopped the ball and then stepped on the bag. I about lost my crazy mom mind – and B said it sounded about as loud as it ever had. They definitely needed that out. I was so so proud of him. He has gotten exponentially better this season, and it’s definitely all hats off to the coaching staff. They’ve been amazing this year. After the game, we headed down to FL. Definitely how we’re going to do it, as there was zero Memorial Day traffic – and we made awesome time.
Saturday, I got up and got an actual run in. Sheff and Poppa went to get some doughnuts, and then after breakfast, it was immediately time to hit the pool. B and I went in search of cheap liquor (thanks, FL!) and Sheff and Poppa put together another model car – a Lamborghini this time! The rest of the day was spent hanging out in the pool and lounging. We had an amazing steak dinner, key lime pie for dessert, and called it a night.
Sunday, I got up and did a 45 (!!!) minute run – I was so proud of myself after that. It’d been awhile since I’d run that long and that far. Sheff and I had some pool time, and then we got ready and headed to Pier Park. We walked the pier, saw a giant sea turtle, and did some shopping. Sheff needed a sun shirt since he’d already gotten burned, and we got him a cute shirt that changes colors in the sun. He also got a super delicious Nathan’s hot dog for lunch. We all got showers and glammed up for dinner at Old Florida Fish House. It was so nice, and the food was so delicious. We got some great family photos on their dock as well. We went home and then went next door to my dad’s neighbors house. They had their grandkids over, so Sheff and his new friends played in the pool until about 9pm.
For Memorial Day, we hit the beach in the morning. After the beach, we all lounged around the house some more until it was time for the cookout. We ended the night on the couch watching League of Their Own. Sheff loved it!
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, so we came back to real life. Sheff started Y Camp today – he was pretty excited about it. They’ve got a ton of really fun weekly programs this summer, and although it’s a whole other job getting him ready in the mornings – I know he’ll have a ton of fun.
Hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend and a good start to the week!
