The boys spent the weekend with their feet in Lake Taneycombo trout fishing. I spent the weekend hanging with Olivia and sneaking in some scrapbooking every chance I got. The boys caught 7 fish, I finished 16 pages in my 2009 scrapbook. You all know what that means right....I did not go on a fishing trip this weekend and squeezed in some scrapbooking. It means I went on a scrapbooking weekend and Wayne squeezed a little fishing in! (you all know he is not happy about that!)
Most everything else in Branson was closed (their off season is January/February) so we really just hung out at the condo, swam, fished, and shopped at my favorite little scrapbooking store. On our way home, we made a pit stop by Rockaway Beach, MO ( I think a fishing trip here might be in our future). The one thing we did not do while in Branson over the weekend, stay connected to everyone. We have 3 cell phones for the 4 of us and all 3 of us forgot a charger! Then on top of that, my husband forgot his phone at home. So the boy and I fought over the one car charger we had with us!
The one thing I was able to do in Branson (besides scrapbooking) was stay on track with my fitness/health plan. The last time I was in Branson, I had a growing lump in my throat that was undiagnosed cancer. It served as a constant reminder so much has changed for me since last June, 2010. So, I tackled it. I made really smart food choices for all meals (ok, I did have 1 cheat meal but all the others were REALLY good)! I also exercised while there. For the first time EVER, I not only found the exercise room, I used it. I not only packed a swim suit, I used it. And...the charge I got on my phone did not go to texting friends or catching up on facebook...it went to updating on myfitnesspal.com! I normally dread hitting the scale the day after a weekend trip, but not this time. I am so looking forward to jumping on the scale tomorrow morning.
Ending with some photos from our trip!
|The Short Chic enjoyed gathering rocks and sticks while the fishermen got ready to go.|
|Here are my fishermen in action. Unfortunately the water was running fast making it hard to catch a fish.|

|This is only one of the teen boys dinner. This is why it is more economical to take teen boys to a buffet!|
