Back from Florida

We are finally home after 8 days and nights in Orlando. We went to every Disney park, Sea World, and Daytona Beach. It was a blast! I don't want to go through all the details of every day, so I'll put some pictures on here to give a general idea of the fun times we had. Evan did so well on his first airplane ride, and we truly had fun spending so much time together as a family. :)

Now, we are home. We are spending today doing yard work and I finally got all my deck staining materials so we are going to do that later this afternoon. The house was "clean" when we left, but I need to vacuum and dust and unpack and do laundry, so I have plenty of work to do. Adam is out there mowing right now. :)

We are planning a little trip down to Beaumont to see my brother and his new baby boy, Peyton Matthew. He is almost 2 weeks old. I am tired of traveling, but it is much easier in the car on our own time schedule!

And since we are home, we are going full steam ahead on changing our diets and lifestyles. There's nothing more humiliating that a bathing suit in a harshly lit dressing room, or realizing that even when you suck in, you still have rolls and pooches in places you never thought of (my back!), and so we went healthy shopping yesterday and have deleted sugars, sodas, snacks, and fried foods from our diets. Lots more water, fruits and veggies, less potatoes and pasta, and way more exercise. As soon as Evan takes a nap, I'm hitting the gym. And walking EVERY evening.

My goal: 15 pounds off my body by August 10 (first day of school).

Adam's goal: slimming down (he doesn't really do the numbers game)

Here's to a healthy and fun-filled summer!
