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!!

    What a great time you are having! I'm sure it was a wonky scale and not to worry. But: I agree with you, it never ever gets easy or automatic!

    So right about how it never becomes "automatic" but requires vigilance to maintain. Don't know how many blogs you have the chance to read this week, but WATERMELLEN has had some really great (POW vs NOW) blogs this week right up this road.

The Summer has flown by here, too. School started yesterday! Have a Sparkly rest of your vacation and as I KNOW you, I know you are nowhere near just tossing in the towel on the healthy life. It's too much FUN, even if it does take work.

    Oh Marsha,
you lucky gramma you! Guess I had my days!

Remember you got lots and lots of muscles and they weight more, but you've got it, get it in line before it gets out of line.

    Sounds like so much fun!! Look forward to the photos! Marsha you are on vacation!! Don't stress over the weight, just enjoy and do the best you can. That is all you can do! Anything you might gain will quickly come off again once you are back to your regular routine and away from the onslaught of every sinful treat you can think of! Enjoy the Studios, as a big movie fan I absolutely loved it there!

    Do enjoy and worry about the scale later. It holds no power over you.
