Happy Fourth!

 Welcome to my little slice of the internet where I can complain as much as I want.
Lucky for you, I have nothing to complain about and we actually had a very nice Fourth of July right on the lake.

Hope you had a good day!

A healthy start.

Better late than never to start fresh with healthy eating and exercising.
I've realized my crash diets are never going to work so I've stopped trying to count calories and carbs and I'm just going to eat healthy and smaller portions.
Something that I can use for the rest of my life.




 And we've been taking long walks in the evening with a stop at the park.
It's hard to find time to work in exercising with the twins, but I'm hoping with my arm curls of constantly picking them up and putting the down and my squats from cleaning up their mess off the floor will do something but we are stopping at different park for good measure.

wish me luck and give me a push!

in a nutshell.


So I'm in the bathroom with Ethan and Emily and they are both on their potty chairs and I'm sitting there just waiting for someone to poop. Finally Emily goes and as soon as she steps up she takes off with the potty chair cup and runs into the kitchen.
She dumped poop in the kitchen sink.
She dumped poop where I wash my vegetables.
I guess this is one of life's "bleachable moments" that tide was talking about.
I get the kids cleaned up and slap a diaper on them and then I go to work cleaning the sink.
I hear a loud noise by an "Oh no your naughty." and I walk over to find that the kids dumped an entire bag of sugar all over the floor I spent the last hour mopping.
Oh well, no use crying over spilt...... sugar.


My day.... in a nutshell.

Better days ahead.


Trying to multitask on this blog today.
I've got a little iddy biddy review and a good day to tell you about.
 
We tested out this underwater camera and I'm pretty please with it seeing how the last "under water" camera that we took out with us got waterlogged the second we stepped into the water.
They run from around $30-$50, depending on where you buy them, but I do see a few floating around on ebay and they do come in different colors. It does take decent pictures for the price, out of water and in, so it's perfect for kids and adults. I can't comment on the durability because I obviously haven't used it for long.
(UnderWater quality is pretty good in my book!)


When you're walking and trying to take pictures, is isn't as great, they come out a little blurry, I did get some great pictures of moving kids so I can't really complain. It's definitely a good camera to have while your are out on the water and it's small and fits in your pocked or if your like me, just stuff it in your swimsuit top.
I've always hated going out to like the splash part or the beach and worried about getting my nice cameras wet, but even tho this doesn't have the quality of an SLR, it's good enough that the pictures make me happy.

Emily jumped right in but Ethan on the other hand...... took about twenty minutes to come off the steps. Poor kid did not like the cold. The spring we went to is suppose to be 72 degree water all year long, even in the winter, which when I think about it shouldn't be that cold, but when you're trying to walk into it you feel like you're falling off the titanic.

But overall, it was just the day that I needed.
