I took a day off from blogging yesterday (the keyword post was scheduled ahead of time), but we sure did have a nice day. Woke up after a good night’s sleep and made up some protein waffles topped with pear/cranberry topping (the apple topping just make with a pear instead)
John and I decided on a post breakfast run. We headed on down to the track and went round and round. John is faster than I am, so he finished up earlier than I did and took some action shots of me.
Look at her go!
I did 3.25 miles today. The loss of speed for me is pretty frustrating, but I just have to work on it and hope it comes back. Then again, if it never does, I will just have to deal with that.
Lunch time before heading out to Great Escape was baked buffalo shrimp. These are a frozen store brand, but not buffalo enough for me – so I added some more hot sauce and a wedge of bleu cheese LC!
Off to Fright Fest:
Scary. This was fun. The park is all decked out in Halloween stuff and scary music was playing throughout the park, plus mist everywhere
We scored free tickets to get in the last time we gave blood, so what a bargain!
Lookout – I am going to get eaten!
Looking down from the ski ride:
We ride fairly tame rides. The balloon ride:
We did go on the bobsled, but I obviousy couldn’t take pictures while on it.
I will tell you that one thing that will never get old to me is slipping into a ride and not worrying about whether the bar will close down over my lap or if I can cram my butt into a small seat, or worse yet – to not fit at all. When I was 250 pounds – that was always on my mind at an amusement park (or an airplane, for that matter). I looked down at my lap and just felt so grateful for that. I also love that John and I could ride something together and there was space on each side of us!
After the bobsled, I was ready for something warm –
This place sold fudge, which looked amazing, but we resisted. I thought this place might have lattes, but they just had brewed coffee. I had a Seattle’s Best coffee at $2.49! However, I will say it was very fresh and brewed properly (meaning not weak). I was happy.
Riding the carousel. 😀
John is starting to grow his winter goatee.
Salem witch hanging for family fun. Real person –
I found the most unusual pink item of the day:
I was starting to get really hungry at this point, and cold as the sun was getting ready to set, so we headed on out and went to dinner. We stopped at Cool Beans where I had more coffee 😳
What does this mean about the dental work?
Egg bagel sandwich.
Very tasty. I was still feeling hungry after this, so we decided to split a raspberry white chocolate scone.
That’s the stuff!
I had a deep chill after being outside most of the day, so it was blanket time for a Saturday night, movies and Playstation. We sure know how to live it up!
