My week in Avon!

Saturday, August 04, 2012

This past week has been pretty fun. My girlies and I went to spend a week with my parent's in Avon and we got to do some fun things. Unfortunately, my parent's had to work and my mom got sick the last 2 days that we were there, so we were on our own for a lot of that time.

One thing that I realized while I was there is that I am much happier when I don't watch tv much. I didn't have the tv on at all during the days and it only come on in the evenings when my parents were home so we could watch the Olympics and their political tv. The political tv just about drives me crazy, but oh well.

Instead of spending time watching tv, the girls and I spent time doing art projects, baking, and trying out new recipes every night for dinner. We also went to the park, went paddle boating, went on runs, rolled down hills, fed the ducks, and just enjoyed being outside and being with each other! We are going to make that a permanent thing in our house! NO MORE SITTING AND WATCHING TV!!!!

We came home today and I'm happy to be back home with David and my puppies. The dogs were so excited to see us! Our 13 year old dog actually started dancing around when she saw us!!! LOL! We continued the activity when we got home! I took the girls to the park for a bike ride!

Oh!!! And my hubby told me when I got home that he is ordering us this Insanity workout program for us to do together! We are botth going to do our best to lose 20 lbs by his 40th birthday!!! He still doesn't know that people are coming and that he has a big thing planned for him, but he doesn't want to enter his 40s being this over weight! YAY!!!

Ok, Here are a few pics from our week!

    Your girls are so beautiful just like their Moma. I love that your hubby surprised you with insanity dvds. How far we have come imagine if he did that before you starting taking better care of yourself he would gotten those DVDS upside the head.

    I to have noticed i just do not have time to slow down and watch tv. I really don't enjoy it like I once did.

    It's hard to be in pictures when I'm the only one taking the girls to do things. It took 3 trys to finally get a pic where all of us were actually in it! LOL. We had a great time though!!!
