Yes, I know. I have four thousand vacation photos and I'm blogging about a friggin' orange. This was my snack this afternoon. OK, one of my snacks this afternoon if you have to be so technical about it. I'm making an effort to eat better and I plan on training for a half marathon that will be in October. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Usually I make all of these big announcements about my new "diet" and how I'm going to walk all the time, etc. and it eventually all comes crashing down. So, this time I'm not going to jinx it, not going to shout it from the rooftops, just whisper about it quietly. My first training session is supposed to be tonight, but it is currently raining so I'm not really sure what will happen.

These are the only souvenirs I have from our trip to Gulf Shores. On the way home we stopped at Peach Park in Clanton, Alabama and I bought a basket of peaches. I gave some to my MIL and Arwyn and I have been snacking on the rest. They are very good, but don't seem to be keeping very well, so I might need to make some peach bread or something soon. The turtle cup is from a Starbucks in Athens, Alabama. I ran out of goodies to keep Arwyn entertained, so I bought this cup and a sticker book. She loved the sticker book and played with it the rest of the way home. I gave her some water in the cup, which she proceeded to "drink" (i.e. dump all over herself) but had a grand time doing it and kept asking for more. I just kept giving her small doses and then changed her clothes a couple of times.

I'll post some vacation shots and then put the rest on flickr.
