Fun times during Spring Break 2012

It was funfilled and flew by!  Spring Break has come to a close and now all we have are vibrant memories (thanks to photo editing).  I managed to make it over to Disney twice, the beach, a fabulous Birthday/St. Patty's Day party, the movies, and got some much needed relaxation.  However, the highlight was heading over to good ole' MD Anderson and seeing my plastic surgeon (well his PA).  Apparently they want me to lose 40 pounds in about 12 weeks.  I am pretty sure they are aware of the weight loss guidelines and know that 1-2 pounds a week is the healthiest track to follow so I'm not sure why they are pushing over 3 pounds a week. 

Anywho, I have been at the gym religiously and have tightened up on my WW points!  I have also invested in a snazzy little jar and some rocks!  Doesn't sound like much,  I know, but it is a visual representation of the weight I have lost.  It is also to motivate me to fill the jar up.  Every rock equals a tenth of a pound (.1).  Since I have lost 13 pounds the jar now has 130 rocks.  So I will be updating everyone on my jar's progress as time flies by!

The first trip to Disney was with Melissa, Rick, Ry, Tacey, and Tegan!

Tacey likes to have her picture taken :)

Ricky is having so much fun riding the Dino!

Yummmm, I am proud to say I just had a nibble of the cookie and nothing else!

Playing with my wide angle lense....

The second trip to Disney was with my gal pals from work!  Suzie, who is orginally from Ohio, had never been to the Magic Kingdom.  Alanna's youngest, Quinn, also had never been.  Having gone to Diseny countless times, it is always fun experiencing it through the eyes of a newbie. 

We had quite a large crew thanks to dad and another teacher, Greg, who got everyone in.  We first stopped by City Hall so that Suzie and Quinny could get their buttons that alerted the world it was their first time at Disney.  We then made our way up Main Street USA.

Our two first timers taking a picture with Quinn's camera.

I laid on the ground to get this shot and I was in such a hurry, I didn't center them! hahahah  I need to slow it down.

Framing things is cool! LOL

He looks so happy....

Love me some Fine Detail Black and White editing!  These girls are superstars, looking for Justin Beiber!

To round out Spring Break, Melissa had a party to celebrate St. Patty's Day and some special birthdays (Rick, his mom, and Melissa's aunt).  It was a great time with friends and a super big dog...and some tiny ones too!

Everyone got a button to wear...
