Weekly Weigh In

I've been having a rough couple of weeks since I joined the gym. I could not for the life of me get the scale to move, in fact most mornings the scale was going in the wrong direction. I finally had a loss this week, so that makes me very happy. I think I've finally figured out the right calorie increase on gym days. Here's hoping that continues to work! I lost 2.1 pounds this week, bringing my total lost to 86.4 pounds.

Weekly Weigh In

I lost 1.9 pounds this week, bringing my total lost to 84.3 pounds. I joined the gym this past week and went Tuesday morning for the first time, it surprisingly felt really good to be working out. My knee and foot still bother me from when I fell down the stairs with Emma back in November. I'm seeing my doctor on Friday, so I'll mention it to him, to see what he says about it.

Museum of Science

On Monday we took advantage of our ButtonWood passes again and went to the Museum of Science. It was a little more crowded then usual with the holiday, but still a fun time.

Miss Grace rocking the sass before we left.
 After I took Grace's picture, she then requested a photo shoot with each baby.
 We left early so the kids could nap in the car before we got there. Emma looking a little tired still.

 Cole and Grace
 We met Cole's sister there and promptly went to catch the live animal show. 
 Grace later said that the animal show was her favorite part. 
 Grace really seemed to love the smell exhibit and liked trying to match up the pictures with the smells.
 Checking out the dinosaurs
 After lunch we let the kids run around the play area for a while, they all loved it. 
 Emma really seemed to like looking at everything.
 Cole and Grace trying out the night vision room.
 The playground room is always a huge hit.
 Sleepy boy.

Disney on Ice

Last Friday Cole and I surprised Grace with Disney on Ice. Grace knew that we were going on a special date, but she had no idea what is was. We decided to take her to see Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Rhode Island. Cole's Mom stayed at home and babysat the twins, so that Cole and I could spend some special alone time with Miss Grace.

Walking to the show, still no idea what we were doing.
 Walking into the crowded event, still no idea.
 We went in and sat in our seats, and then began to explain what we were doing.
 She was very excited!
 After we filled her in on what was going to happen Cole went and got her some $10 cotton candy, that came with a hat, and a $10 lemonade. I just could not justify spending $28 on a light up toy that was going to break on the way home. Grace loved the hat and thankfully didn't whine about not having a light up wand. 
 Enjoying her cotton candy.
 We were all very excited for the show to start!
 And then it started!
 Grace was in awe, and was captivated by the whole thing.
 Grace clapping!
 What's a Disney show without some fireworks!
 We all had a great time! The show was great! Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy were there. Plus they did scenes from the Lion King, the Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch, and Peter Pan. Grace did great and sat through the whole thing. Grace's eyes were glued to the ice. They did a great job interacting with the audience, there was lots of clapping involved!
We had a great experience and will definitely be taking Grace again!
