Wednesday, Wednesday and super cool GiveAway!

My friend over at Living Lindsay is doing an awesome giveaway Brooks running shoes.  Don't walk.  Run over there to check it out.  Open until Monday, September 26th, 11:59 P.M., 6 ways to enter.

Breakfast on the run

Followed by an afternoon at the Aquarium

a cute pic of my little Nemo friend.  Looks like he's waving at me.

check out the staff feeding the gators.  Not a job I'd want to have.  What about you?
me and my girls

My family eating ice cream again.  Really.  Do they have to do this everyday on vacation?
Then we rode the ferry, which the girls had never done.  It was the highlight of their day!  My hubby said we could have saved a lot of money by not going to the aquarium.

For dinner we went to Riverview Cafe .  Last September we treated my Dad to dinner here.  It was his last beach trip.  I think he thoroughly enjoyed his time here with us.  I'm so thankful we could give him that gift.  Lord knows he's given me more than I deserved.  He died in August from from lung cancer.  So in honor of Dad, we dined here again.  It was a planned treat, not using the word cheat (too negative).  I had hush puppies, broiled shrimp, french fries, coleslaw, and tea sweetened with Sun Crystals.

Remember the "Rocky" styled workout I said I would do on Wednesday?  Well I'm a woman of my word, so I hit the stairs & worked out like a girl!  Seven flights up and seven flights down times five!  I was not breaking any speed records for sure.  I stopped when my knees started feeling weak.  I wasn't about to risk an injury.  Then I came back to our condo and did push ups, squats, abs, and regular workout for the week.  When I came back to the condo, my husband said, "Hey Rock, next time I'm gonna have you chasing chickens!"  It gave me a good giggle.  At least I still have my sense of humor.

That was Wednesday.  Hope yours was great!

Be healthy.  Be strong.

Take care,

    Your girls are darling! Im sure tehy will remember that time at the aquarium so Im sure it wasnt wasted money. ITs funny what kids remember. Many times my girls will remind me of things we did when they were little that I had forgotten. They do have minds like little steel traps! Wish I had a mind like that. Anyways, enjoy them now cuz you will turn around one day and look at them and say "when did they get so big?". I know its sounds cliche, but its true as this has happened to me. In less than 3 yrs my oldest dtr will be in COLLEGE!! REally?! College?! I feel like I just took her to kindergarten.
    Anyways, glad you had a nice dinner and Im sure it felt special to re visit that restaurant. Im sure your dad wasnt too far away. I applaud you for continuing to exercise on vaca & doing all those steps...BRAVO!!!
    Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

  2. I bet the aquarium was great! I always feel like I like it better than the kids, though, too. Sounds like the vacation is going great!
