Sending the Summer Out with a SPLASH!

This weekend was the last weekend the kids will be with me, before school starts. So yesterday, I took them to the Springs. Hubby was working, so it was just the four of us.

T-bone...I'm pretty sure he was praying that I didn't kill him after he splashed me IN THE FACE.


The Princess, throwin' up the peace sign.


Moody Preteen Ladybug smiles for the camera...


I was hoping for ONE good pic of the three of them, but nooo, I get tongues stuck out, goofball faces, and some guy's ass in the background.


Jumping in!


Such a deceptively sweet, innocent smile. This is the Princess on the playground.


It was beautiful, relaxing, and a lot of fun.

And...I've mostly been posting my weight updates here, but as of today I've lost 92 lbs. (the last 2 lost even with Aunt Flo and her bitchy sisters visiting!). Doing great, feeling fantastic, and loving it!

Here's a recent pic:


Here's a before pic, for comparison. This was taken on Halloween of 2007.

You look fabulous! My college kid headed back to Gainesville today. We're catching up with her hopefully over Labor Day to bring the rest of stuff down.

It looks like you and yours had a fun weekend.

Love this post! I got a really good chuckle. The kids are cute and so are their actions. Thanks for coming by my blog and commenting. I hope you'll come back again soon.

Nichole and Scott said...

By the way, I want to be sure you know I was chuckling at the comment about the guys Ass in the picture behind your kids. Also, I'm envious of your weight loss. Any helpful pointers other than get off the computer and move my own butt? I feel like all I do is chase after my sweet little one all day. Evidentally my body doesn't think that is enough.

You. Look. Awesome! Seriously.

What a wonderful way to spend your last summer weekend. So much fun! I love "jumping in."

I can't believe how early your kids go back to school! Kids in the UK don't go back until the second week in Sept!

Sounds like you and the children had a lovely day before getting back to school. It's always nice to have one of those. Congrats on the weight loss...that is awesome, you look fantastic.

We love our monitor techs, they make our lives so much easier...and I don't stress as much when I can't hear the alarms all night. I used to go home to auditory hallicinations of the alarms...I would hear them day and night, and in my dreams!
