Well, I did it...

I joined Weight Watchers online. Since being off of work, I have gained more weight than I care to talk about. I realized how bad it was when none of my Spring clothes from last year fit me right. I decided that Weight Watchers was a good fit for me. They talk a lot about the fact that cutting out everything that you love is starting out on the wrong track and I know that I have failed many times before. Today is day one, but so far I have done well and I feel good about it. I hope to lose 27 pounds minimum and keep it off! Wish me luck!

A day spent enjoying the sunshine!

It was a beautiful day on Friday. We spent the day playing outside. We even ate our lunch outside! I love it when the girls can just go out and run around and be kids! This winter was so long. It was so sunny that I even got a sunburn! (I'm not complaining. It doesn't hurt and at least there was sun!)

John Ball Zoo

We spent Thursday afternoon at the zoo. It was so nice to be able to get outside! There is a lot of construction going on at the zoo right now and some of the animals aren't out yet, but we had fun. The animals that were out enjoyed the nice weather too.

The bears were liking the nice weather. They were taking a nice dip in the pool to cool down!

The new area opened for the lions last year. When we went this time there weren't very many people there, so we were able to get pretty close to the lions. One of the lionesses was as intrested in us as we were in her. She was almost pressing her nose to the glass! (Sorry the pictures were taken inside a cave so they aren't very good!)

The girls really wanted to go pet the goats. They were really sad when we got there and it was locked. Lou brought them to the fence and that was enough to make them happy. We spend forever petting the goats!

And, who doesn't remember climbing on the statue of John Ball as a kid?


It's finally here! Nice weather and sunshine. I spent the last few days enjoying the weather.
On Wednesday Lou and I went to AJ's and the guys hit the batting cages and then we played mini golf. He beat me, but I was holding my own for a while!

Here it begins...

So, I have been trying to decide whether or not to start a blog for a while now. I finally decided, why not?!?
