#21 Seattle Aquarium Done and my New Toy!!

Now that I have a few moments to actually sit down and blog! 

A couple weeks ago Tall Guy and I took the kiddos to the Seattle Aquarium. This was me and Little Man's second time going but a first for Tall Guy. Honestly, given how expensive it is to get in (around 60$ for all of us) I am never impressed. Little Man had a good time though and that is honestly all that matters. 
When you first walk in, Little Man reading the board.

Awesome shot of the Sound.

Then I got this awesome thing in the mail:

Nike Fuelband is a must IMO! I am literally obsessed with this thing and making sure that I hit all the goals that I set for myself. It tracks fuel (energy) that you have burned throughout the day, steps, calories burned. On my Zumba days the steps are insane (around 7k total). I find myself hitting my goal earlier and earlier in the day too. Love it!! 

(Anyone on Nike+ website, add me as a friend!)

I know I said I would have a giveaway a couple weeks ago and I promise it's coming! I will upload it tomorrow! 

Hope you're all having a good Memorial Day Weekend!

Living in the Pacific Northwest there is literally so much to do. Having lived here for 7 years, I still have yet to see like 90% of this state. So this summer, I plan on making it a busy one. Get out there, enjoy this weather. Go site seeing! Be a tourist for a day in some of the areas I have gone to all the time! So when the awesome Hilary posted a link about the 2013 Summer Bucket List Challenge it sounded like an awesome way to get out there and have a great summer!

Took a hiatus...

I seem to do that quite often huh? 

These last two weeks I have been really busy. 

If I am not out walking in the mornings, I am at home teaching my son.

If I am not teaching my son, I am doing homework for myself.

If I am not doing homework, I am heading to Cub Scouts or Awanas.

If I am not headed to Cub Scouts or Awanas, I am headed to Zumba twice a week.



Not much to say except the pictures say it all. The weather has been absolutely beautiful these last couple weeks. 

(Giveaway starts tomorrow, I'm excited for it :D Two winners, 2 items of clothing. Score!)

Beautiful Puget Sound

Seattle Wheel! 

Look at those mountains in the distance? Beautiful.

Wapato Park one morning on our walk.

And another morning!
