Friday night in Mccall

No big party here on my Birthday. Just me Dawn and Cole sitting around watching "Dateline" and the "tonight show" woohoo...........I know the photo makes me look like I haven't lost much weight, but remember the camera adds 20 pounds....just to my face! I really have no idea what I may have lost, because I decided when I got here that my whole problem in the past with weight, is that I set a big goal, work by buns off, hit my goal, and then go right back to my old eating habits. So this time around, I really really just want to focus on eating healthy, exercising and feeling good, and not ever getting on a scale, because that's not what it is all about. It's about a serious lifestyle change and eating this way forever, not just until you hit some magical number on the scale. So hopefully over the next few months, with that philosophy, Dawn and I and Cole can make these changes last for a lifetime, for all three of our sakes. It's been great and we have all had an unbelievable time together.

Cole's last day of school in McCall

Cole on his last day of School in McCall. He did 3 weeks hard labor here. Hopefully he didn't fall too far behind all his buddies back at home. He had a great time here and made some new friends.

Ryder Cup baby

me on my birthday doing what I wanted to do.......chillin' out, watching the American's smoke the Europeans on the first day of the Ryder Cup

Apple and the tree

Let's just say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...........my kids will understand this even if no one else does............Okay I better explain.........this is EXACTLY how I sleep. I never knew what to do with my left arm, it was always flopping around, so I got in the weird habit on tucking it on the left side of my shorts. I love Cole, he has been such a great kid on this trip.

Yea......it's my turn

ok! ithought i should take a turn, and of course my husband decided to get another beautiful picture of me to post....We have had so much fun on this trip. We have also busted our butts everyday with major exercise routines. I feel as though for as many miles as we have biked i could of made it back to Arizona by now.. You have to understand i dont think i have been on my bike in over 2 years, never mind the fact that i have never mountain biked before, but man i love it. It is so beautiful here its like a slice of heaven. I wished you all could see it for yourseves. But you will just have to take my word for it. If i ever hit the jackpot i am going to get a place here, it has everything..... Ther is another thing that i have to mention and that is, the men in my life, i dont know what has come over them since we have been here but they have been awesome, making dinner doing the dishes, being so sweet, ladies you have to bring your guys here..... its crazy......... As much as i am having a great time here i am getting anxious to get home to my other kids, i miss them like crazy.... Hopefully they have missed me,
