More Resort Vacation with Grandkids
Thursday, August 15, 2013
Yesterday we spent the day at the Orlando Science Museum. The Clifford the Big Red Dog exhibit was a hit, as was the Dino Diggs, and Dr. Seuss's story of the planets projected in 360 degrees on a 6' ball from the ceiling. Probably the favorite thing of our 2 grandkids was the water play. They could build dams, create whirlpools, and float boats on a pile of rocks waterfall and on a table. I did take some pictures, but haven't downloaded them yet. We went swimming after supper and went to bed late, but the girls were up early anyway.
We went swimming again first thing this morning and then it was 17 holes of miniature golf here at the resort. We played the first 8 holes twice and then finished on hole 9 that keeps your ball. Natalie got the only hole in one!! I had the camera with me, but forgot to take pictures. Oh, well.
I got on a scale yesterday that scared me, but hubby said he weighed 10 pounds heavy on it. Guess I'll just have to get home to see how bad it is. Am trying to be sensible, but for some reason my head isn't quite in the right place for proper maintenance restraint. Hoping it's not as bad as I fear. Whatever, I'm not giving up and I know I will succeed, even withoccasional slips. Having kept off 80 pounds for over 4 years now, some think it should come easy to me now. It doesn't. It's hard, but it is do-able, and it is worth it!
My daughter and son-in-law will be here in just a couple hours and be with us through Sunday. We've never taken a vacation an hour from home before, but it really has worked out well for people coming back and forth. The tooth fairy will come tonight. There is a second loose tooth and it may be 2 for 1 if we don't hurry!! We'll be going to Universal Studios theme park tomorrow for sure and maybe Saturday, too, depending. Natalie starts first grade on Monday. Summer is going fast! Come to think of it, time is going fast and they are just growing so fast. What a blessing that we get to enjoy so many of their days!!
