Splash Pad

There is an awesome splash pad not far from here that I had been hearing about. Everyone I knew that went to it raved about it and said how much fun they had there with their kids. The kids L-O-V-E water. We do a sprinkler in the backyard on a regular basis. I was itching to get them to the splash pad. I had planned to meet a friend and her kids on Friday there, but the weather had other plans. I ended up taking my 3 to the mall to play in their play area for a while. Sunday the sun was shining and it was a great day. Diva had been asking to go to the splash pad so we loaded up and headed that way. The place was fantastic. I was impressed. Diva ran around in the water for a little bit and then her and a girl she met there went and played on the play set adjacent to the splash pad the rest of the time. Carter took immediately to the water. He was one very happy little boy. He ran around full speed the entire time. It took Owen a little bit to warm up to the idea. The first 30-45 minutes he was having nothing to do with the water. He wanted to go slide. He eventually warmed up and had the time of his life playing in the water. The best part about the splash pad? Nap time was AWESOME Sunday afternoon.

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken.

Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back)
Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.  And it hurt so good.
Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills.
Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the strength …

I Just Taught Myself How To Add Pictures To My Blog...

It's about time I figured it out.
We went and stayed with family over New Year's. Diva rode a horse and a big green tractor. 

                  She thought she was a VERY big deal getting to ride Goldie on New Year's Day



Mr. Hubs dabbles in photography. He never gives himself enough credit. He had to watch Shrek and Donkey for a few hours this weekend. This is how he spent his time...
