First Trip to PIB

The ferries are running, so we took our first trip to PIB this past weekend and had a blast. The sun wasn't shinning as brightly as we had hoped, but the girls still really enjoyed the park and seeing their Granny. They continue to ask about Mona the turtle though I doubt we'll see her again this year - the budget cuts prevented her from appearing at the hatchery last year and I expect the same this year. Not much is open yet, but we're looking forward to more visits and more fun in 2009! Maybe they'll even catch another fish! (My avatar is a modified pic of their first!)

Recent Calorie Counter

As a recent calorie counter I am finding myself a little obsessed. Who knew so many foods had so many calories? You know those cute little "fruit slices" . . . I know you know the candy I'm talking about. It looks like fruit so you can convince yourself it is okay to eat, but in reality there is not one fruity thing about it. Did you know that just one of those little fruit slices has 50 calories!?!?! Yikes! No wonder I wasn't losing any of my baby weight . . . nevermind that my baby is now 3 years old.
