Idaho trip

We went to see Phils sister in Idaho last weekend. It was fun and Tristan did GREAT!!! He was happy most of the car ride and I got some cute pics of the first day before my camera died. Of course right? Anyway here they are

Swimming in the hotel pool with daddy

He looks like such a chunk in this picture!


He is just like his daddy and loves to look at himself in the mirror

Forgive me while I take a moment to pat myself on the back...

So I have been very discouraged lately because I am nowhere close to my goal weight or goal pants size. It seems to be all I think about lately and I have been busting my butt trying to lose weight but It seems to be coming off so slowly. Anyway today was a particularly bad day and I spent a good deal of the morning feeling sorry for myself when suddenly I realised that even though I am nowhere near where I want to be, at this very moment I weigh less than I have since before I had Abby. SO....even though I have a LONG way to go I think I can be proud of the fact that this is the closest I have been to where I want to be in over 5 years! Forgive me for bragging but this is kind of my way of trying to see things positively. Here's hoping this attitude sticks for more than one day! As I was searching for a before picture I found that I did a very good job of staying out of pictures (for good reason!!!) Anyway this is really the only one I have.
5 months ago....

Now...




Hopefully soon I will be posting one of me at my goal weight!!!

Abbys REAL first day of school

We survived! Abbys first day was very eventful. It started with a very excited little girl and then turned into me pulling a sobbing little girl off my leg and leaving her crying in her seat. That of course was followed closely by a tearful car ride home on my end. BUT we survived and Abby now LOVES school! I miss her when she is gone but it is so fun to hear about what she is learning.
