So yesterday was my dads birthday....poor guy couldn't go any where but we still had a fun little celebration here. Fortunately we went to a bakery and got him ONE slice of his favorite cake so that big tempting cake wouldn't be sitting in the kitchen(I'm not usually tempted by it anyways but Jillian says will power is over rated so try not to put yourself in a situation that you have to use it).
so heres a shout out Happy Birthday to the best dad on the planet!!!! Love my daddyo!!!!
And no worries my kiddos didn't go without a dessert while papa ate his cake....this dessert was ginormous....
haha...that is my mom and my Brody man being silly....they love chocolate if you couldn't tell :o) but I again had none....my sweet treat was jello and coolwhip...and I love me some coolwhip(in moderation and measured of course)!!!
Yesterday was also a test for leaving my dad alone for a while to see if he could do things on his own without assistance for a period of time. We were just up the street at the school my mom works at for "transportation day". That was a lot of fun. I worked at the same school for 7 years before we moved to Indiana and I usually come back for transportation day every year. Its the biggest day of the year there. All different forms of transportation come and fill the parking lot and field...we usually have helicopter come in and land in the field too and the kids can get on it...this year we were suppose to have a hot air balloon but it was raining all day so that put a slight damper on the day. No hot air balloon and even though there were other things in the parking lot the rain kept us from seeing it all. there were still lots of activities inside so my babies were pretty happy and I was happy to see all of my old coworkers who are still GREAT friends of mine!
Here are some pics from our day there!
rain didn't keep us inside the whole time :o)
Brody would have played in this thing all day if I would have let him!
Bman made his own visor :o) Brinley just wanted the stickers :o)
A great friend and second mama Deb love her!!!!
Another amazing friend...love this guy....sure miss working with him every day!!!
It was a fun time!!!!! Rain and all!!!
So my dads "test" day to see how he would do without us went well!!! He did just fine!!! It was only 3 hours but since my mom works down the street she can come by every few hours to check on him so looks like we will be for sure going home on the 4th! I am ready to be home but will miss being here too! But its time for me to get my kids back into their normal routine and get myself back into my routine as well. I'm ready to knock some pounds out in June!!!! Now that you have read all the details of my first day of June...lol... now on to my goals....
Goals for June-
*lose 8lbs (from whatever my weight is on the 5th...still gotta weigh in to see how I did while here helping my dad)
update I weighed in at 195 so goal is to be 187lbs by June 30th!
*get a 3 mile walk/jog in at least 3 times a week
* zumba 3 times a week(I usually do this but being gone all May it didn't happen)
*get more strength training in
*spend some time at the beach!!!
(I will actually be heading back up this way on June 9th for a few days...I have family coming up from Tenn and I have 2 graduation parties to attend on the 9th, but my hubs will be with me on that trip and it will only be 4 days and then we will be back home the rest of the month. So I should be able to rock out all of my goals this month!)
Have a GREAT month spark friends...dont forget to set goals for yourself!
I appreciate you all so much!!!!
