Family Fun Fitness
Yesterday the girls got a x-tra big package in the mail from one of their very special friends and Grandmother. It was such welcome surprise and the girls got to practice opening some Christmas gifts early. They were over joyed! Thanks ladies..we love you!
I wanted to talk about some ideas we have to keep our girls fit and healthy. Both girls have always been very busy and Dylan will probably be a runner when she gets older. One thing I do to encourage her is take her to some fun local 5K races. She actually loves them and asks lots of questions. And wants to race me.
She also loves to ride her bike and is quite good at it. We have taken bike rides to the library, her favorite restaurant, and to get desserts. Since I have been staying at home she rides her bike to the park and I follow with our 18mth in the running stroller. ~she can wear me out! And thanks Danielle for some motivational running ideas from your blog to keep me going. I need them!
Similarly, I joined a local MeetUp group of stay at home moms that meet at various parks in the area. Our favorite is a big park where the girls just run and climb and swing! By the time I get home they are napping! It is a regular weekly activity that they look forward too where they can make new friends and be active the way kids should be.
One final thought I have goes back to yesterday’s TWD post on saving money. I wanted to add I do not throw out the milk in the milk sippies that the girls lay down. If they are recent sippies I just made I just put them back in the frig. The reason is two-fold, it saves money on milk consumption (the refrigerator stops the bacteria process) and I just don’t have to wash so many sippies all the time. Geez! These girls can put away some juice and chocolate (milk)!
