The star of the night was Mosasaur. He was huge and a relative of modern snakes.
We went to a lecture by Dr. Robert Bakker and Charlie even answered one of his questions correctly. It was fascinating and we all learned a lot about dinosaurs. I can't wait for the new hall to open.
Charlie and I had balloon hats made.
We all got temporary tattoos sprayed on. It's Monday and mine is still on!Chuck getting his tattoo.
The museum had food, cash bar, a DJ and several activities. All free for members.
And this cute baby alligator. :)
Rachel is checking out volunteers working on fossils. I talked to a couple of the volunteers and decided this is something I want to do eventually. In my spare time.We all had a great time and I just love this picture they took of us. :)
That evening we put the top down on Rachel's car and we enjoyed the cool of the evening riding around. We stopped at a canoe launch and saw fish hitting the water, some ducks and a skunk crossing the road.
Confession time: my eating has been all over the place. Some days my resolve is so strong and other days I just don't care. I must stop this right now.
One thing that has kept me accountable in the past is taking pictures of my eats. I hate telling you that I am trying to lose weight then showing a picture of something that I shouldn't have munched.
So I'm going to start taking pics and sharing them with you right here every day until I get this whole thing back under control. I want to lose weight. Now. Again. I think the exercise part is going pretty well. I got in 19 miles this week. 6 of those were paddling Friday night but the rest were all on my own two feet.
I need to be able to have something to think about when I feel tempted to have things that aren't helpful:
- looking decent in clothes
- getting my membership to Bayou City Outdoors when I get into size 8
- hiking Grand Canyon rim to rim with my Chuck
- my health
Splurges happen and there's no way that I'm giving them up. But I can make a splurge the norm. They should be occasional, not daily.
And that's that! Wish me luck! :)
