Flag Football End-of-the-Season Party

After Wildman’s baseball game on Saturday we headed over to Pump It Up for the boys’ last flag football hoorah.  It’s funny how skeptical I was signing the boys up for flag football this summer.  I was unsure of how this sport would suit my kids, the parents seemed overly intense about football at sign-ups, was it too dangerous?

All that skepticism vanished when we got our team assignment and met all of the great parents and boys on our team.  We had a wonderful season full of highs and lows.  We lost our head coach to a several-month job assignment up north but several dads jumped right in to fill the gap.  We may not have made it to the Super Bowl but we still ended the season on a high note with an amazing party.

We made some great friends along the way and learned a few lessons too.

I’m so happy that my boys got to experience flag football with these people.  It was a wonderful season.

Happy Happy Birthday

September is a busy month for birthdays in our family.  My grandmother, J’s grandpa, my father-in-law, cousin B, Uncle Chris and J all have September birthdays!

We celebrated birthdays for J, Uncle Chris and Papa on Saturday night with a pool party, shrimp taco cookout and a little college football.  Go Gators!

This year my father-in-law turns 69, J turns 39 and Uncle Chris turns 31!

It was a fun evening spent with family and friends.  Of course, my mom was super tense because Big Red was there.  She blames him for everything that happened in Steph’s marriage and cannot get past it.  But she was on her best behavior and I’m hoping that going forward we can just learn to let bygones be bygones.  Bitterness won’t get you anywhere.

I picked up J’s favorite cake for dessert- Cold Stone’s Mmmmint Chip.  Everyone said it was wonderful!  I did not have a piece because of the South Beach Diet thing.  I amazed myself with my willpower 🙂  Let’s hope this two weeks of restriction pays off…

While watching the Florida- Tennessee game replay, the birthday boys opened their presents.  J wanted a bottle of port wine and a fishing shirt which the boys and I were happy to oblige.

Happy birthday J, Chris and Papa!  Here’s to many more happy birthday to come!!!
