Afternoon at the park

This will be a post FULL of pictures. Park pictures to be exact.
But I haven't uploaded in awhile and I actually put my camera to use today, so...I hope you enjoy. The girls LOVE playing at the park, and it was a gorgeous day with lots of sunshine so we took advantage. Maddie can't get enough of the slide, which you'll see in most of the pictures and Bekah just runs around like crazy so it's hard to track her down when there's playground equipment involved. haha And you can see from all the sunflare in some of the pictures the sun was REALLY shining today. Can i get a THANK YOU JESUS!!!

And at the end of the visit...dirty park faces and smiles!! Sucessful trip : )

To anyone reading this...

We have NOT fallen off the face of the earth.
Everybody in the Beaty household is just fine and dandy.
We stayed busy for a little while with all the newfound sun and warmth, but then mother nature decided she hated me, and it's been gloomy, raining or BOTH in Oregon for the last almost 2 weeks! This is not typical for June weather here, so I am not the only pissed off "Oregonian". Yeah, they call themselves that. HA! We get a brief respite from the rain for oh, 3 months out of the year! Come on mother nature, give us a break!!

I've started working out again. I know, as if you care. But it's my blog, so pfffff!
I finally decided I would like my pre-baby body back last June. I worked out all summer long and lost 14lbs! It was great. Then the rain came and that was history. I worked out on and off (more off honestly) over the winter, but managed to do enough to just maintain what I had lost. Better than nothing, right? But since I have a little more to lose I decided to kick it into high gear in April. I joined a gym finally a few weeks ago so I've been hitting it hard core. Phew! I'm exhausted. 5-6 days a week at the gym will do that to ya! But, I am happy to say that I lost 6lbs so far! **dances** You don't understand how happy I am about that. I've been working SO HARD. Don't believe me, ask Russel! I was starting to think I hadn't lost anything, but then my scale decided it wanted to live so it showed me some lower numbers and all is well. : ) I hope to hit my goal in the next few months and I'll let you know when I do!

I don't have any pictures to upload of the girls right now as I can't get onto my drive where we keep them all and my computer nerd husband hasn't figured out why yet. (To his defense maybe I should remember to ask him so he actually knows there's a problem???) lol. So I will upload pictures very soon. I promise. Tah Tah!
