Sorry I’ve been MIA. Between wrapping up the last two days of our vacation and driving home we’ve been busy bees. After spending a wonderful day at Animal Kingdom on Tuesday and having the most amazing time at Disney on Wednesday we decided to take it easy Thursday and frolic in the wave pool at Typhoon Lagoon. We had a blast! Little guy was pretty much game for anything (with some coaxing.) He’s he’s just about tall enough to go on most rides and slides but there were a few he missed by a measly half inch. :( The magic number seems to be 48 inches.
After spending the day at the water park we headed to Hollywood Studios for the evening. That completed out trifecta of parks. Mixed in was 2 trips to downtown Disney, pool time at the resort (we stayed at Port Orleans), fun at the arcade and umm I don’t know.. SLEEP. Unfortunately we had to do that. ;)
Here’s are a few more pics from our last two days…
As you can see Little Guy is entering the Star Wars phase and we are loving it!
Friday Morning we hit the road and headed back home. Driving straight through we made it by 2AM.
We rushed home to get a good start for the week before work on Monday morning. Today was all about laundry and grocery shopping. Little Guy and I walked to the store (it’s about 3/4 of a mile) with our wagon and stocked up on TONS of fresh fruits and veggies. We did a quick produce pick video (fennel) for GreenLiteBites and then I whipped up this tasty soup…
It felt good to be back in the kitchen but I ran out of time to write up the recipe tonight. I’ll post it tomorrow.
In other news, I did start counting points today. I feel the need to have some extra accountability. Remember those tight pants? Yea.. well they aren’t getting any loser. I’d rather be proactive now then wake up one morning to discover none of my clothes fit.
My points are real low today but honestly, I just wasn’t that hungry. This normally happens to me when I get back from vacation. Especially vacations where I was pounding pretzels at midnight the night before just to say awake in the car. ;)
