One of the main reasons why I decided to blog was to remember the funny things my children say. So, here goes the conversation between Eason and I this weekend while driving to downtown Decatur, AL.
Eason: Hey mom, there is a tattoo place. (He knows this because he can read just about
Mom: Yep, sure is.
Eason: Will you drop me off there so I can get a REAL tattoo?
Mom: No way, you have to be 18 years old to get those. (I don't know if this is really true, but
that was the best I could come up with right then.)
Eason: Then will you take me there when I'm 18?
Mom: Not then either. I don't like tattoos.......especially on my sweet little boy.
Eason: (After a short pause.....) Mom, it's not like you can just jump into my life.
Mom: What do you mean by that, Eason?
Eason: You know, you can't be one of those people that think you can just jump into my life and
tell me how to make my decisions. Just because you don't like tattoos doesn't mean that
Mom: (At this point, what do you say? The 6 year old has won yet another argument!)
What will the post high-school years be like for us? I am afraid I don't want to know!!!!!
The pictures look as though Sawyer didn't know what to think about 2 big boys. But he had a GREAT time.........I promise!
He also got to hear the Mizell version of "Take me out to the ballgame........" He enjoyed that, too. Eason has been asking for another brother for quite some time now. He has been specifically asking for a brother from China. I have no idea where that came from......but that is what he wants. After keeping Sawyer he has now decided he wants a Chinese brother and a brother like Sawyer. Whew.........I don't know about either one?

We also visited the Build-a-Bear workshop in Collierville, TN. The boys LOVE going here. If you've never been, then we highly recommend going sometime. Since the boys want a dog so desperately bad, they both decided to make puppies instead of bears. The picture above is of Eason and Coleman giving their new pets a "bath."
We also had the opportunity to go to Bonefish Grill with Mimi. I have been telling her about it for a long, long time. She loved it and so did I. I highly recommend the shrimp and scallops with the pan-Asian sauce. And also, you HAVE to order the Bang-bang shrimp appetizer. YUM-O!
