Every year since O was around 2 we have decorated Easter Eggs. We usually have a few friends come over and join in the fun. It's typically very chaotic and a lot of eggs get destroyed.

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 stre
