We're BACK!

from the sand dunes and we had a great time. It wasn't very warm - but the sun was out and the kids didn't care. They seriously played ALL day long and loved every minute of it - they were seriously a different shade from all of the sand by the time they came in for the night. They all did well sleeping in the motorhome and baylee even napped a few times! So i'm going to share some pictures and then will be back tomorrow with some scrappy goodness!

This is (from left to right) Joni, Stephanie, Bobbie and me! They were camped over at Sand Mountain and came over with thier toys for a while - Bobbie let me drive her Rhino and we had Baylee strapped in the back and she had a ball - she loved it (of course there are not pictures of that because who runs the camera!)Dean on his new Motorcycle - first time at the dunes with itAll of the guys getting ready to go on a ride-Casey, Brett, Dean, Kent, Joe and Dustin

About the only picture I got of Ethan (on the left) playing this weekend - he was just in his own little world!Dean and baylee giving kisses - she would beg for him to take her on rides - and of course he could never say no!Baylee and I hanging around campDean and Mason by their bikes.........Going out to some flat ground for Mason to practice - he had a hard time in the sandMason finally got the hang of it.......Ethan rode it a few times but wrecked pretty hard and didn't want to get back on..... he's only 5 so maybe next time.

hopefully we will go again soon - it was so much fun. On the weight front - believe it or not - I have lost 8lbs just by watching what i eat - i must have been a pig! But i'm not starving anymore - i think my stomach has gotten used to smaller portions now. Now hopefully to add the excercise.

I will be back later to check out everyone elses blogs that ive neglected since i've been gone!
