We were on the road by 10:30 to our destination which was almost 2hrs away:
MARINELAND!!! My kids have been before but not me. The attractions at the park are spread out so we did a lot of walking but once you see the photos I took you’ll understand why I felt it was totally worth the aching knees I had by the time we left! Check it out;
I loved, loved all the sea life/animals we saw!! I enjoyed a vanilla soft serve at one point:
I don’t know if it was because it’s been ages since I’ve had one of these or it was just so perfect on a hot day, but I enjoyed this baby immensely! The kids had a blast on a bunch of rides. I took before, during and after shots of them on the kid size drop zone…
For those of you out there with kidlets, do they like rides? Mine love them! We arrived home just after 7pm and heated leftover Chinese for dinner. I didn’t bother with another photo, though. Because I was feeling stiff and achy I thought it best to go for a bit of a walk to try and loosen up some. I took this little bugger with me;
I just can’t resist that face! ;) As I’m sure you can imagine, I slept like a rock! I was up and at it by 8am, though, because I had plans to head into the GTA (greater Toronto area) for some shopping and wanted to get there well before lunch. Breakfast was overnight oats.
I mixed 1/2 a cup of oats with a 1/2 cup each USAB & Boathouse mocha cappuccino, 2 tbsp of chia seeds and cinnamon. I added walnuts this morning.
I think the key to me liking overnight oats is leaving the flavour simple. If I try to add too much it usually finds its way into the garbage.
So, my 2 main reasons for venturing 45 minutes out of my way to shop? Lululemon and Panera! Between DD, my hubby and I, we did some serious damage to the Visa. I only took one picture in the change room before I totally forgot about the camera.
I bought what you see here plus another tank and a pair of capri’s. I’ll take a picture of those when I wear them. I love the style of tank in the picture! This is my second one…the other is pink and grey striped. We cruised around the mall for a bit but I wasn’t interested in buying anything else. By 12:30 we were across the street at Panera. I ordered the strawberry poppy seed salad and Mediterranean veggie sandwich with and apple for my lunch:
While we were enjoying our food an employee came around with cinnamon coffee cake samples.
It was awesome! I have my fingers and toes crossed that since I live in a university town, a Panera will soon make it’s way to my stomping ground!
Not long after arriving home I changed into my workout clothes and busted out levels 1 & 2 of the 30 Day Shred. Holy, kick ass! I was so hot my legs were sweating!! Towards the end of level 2 I was starting to question my sanity. LOL But I had my eye on the prize and as soon as I showered (for the second time today!!) I rewarded myself for a job well done with a Starbucks via iced coffee with a wee bit of cream:
I sucked this back so fast I hardly tasted it! I read the rest of the afternoon away. Eventually, the fam got hungry. I did not. I kept my meal VERY light with some quinoa and baked zucchini with coconut mango sauce.
I also ate the last 3 pieces of my chocolate bar.
Yuma, yuma! A storm is blowing in and I hope that we don’t lose the satellite signal because SYTYCD is one at 8. I’d hate to miss it! So tell me, what exciting things have you been up to so far this week??
Bye for now!!
