...followed up by some races in the yard until it got dark. We love to be outside and love that we have the blessing of living in Florida to enjoy warm weather year-round.
Ready, Set, Go!
After all that fresh air and running around, the boys fell asleep without any trouble. Look how cute they are snuggled up with their toys from Daddy...
Colton with his frog.
Mason with his rhino.
Both books are by Sarah Weeks and helped me carry out my Valentines Day theme. There are lots of good rhymes and animals in both of them which make them good choices for toddlers.
We literally ran a couple of errands before coming home and spending the rest of the morning in the backyard soaking up the gorgeous day. The boys decided that if I wasn't going to put water in the water table for them, they would just get in the table themselves. Pretty funny!
They also spent quite a bit of time trying to sit and bounce on the kickball. They must be trying to workout like they've seen me do on the exercise ball.
If anyone knows how to edit these so they're not sideways, let me know please!
Silly boys. Gotta watch what I say around my little parrots. They copy everything I say. "That darn ball....lol"
It's day 2 of my healthier living plan and I've been pretty successful so far with getting to bed early (went to bed at 9ish and woke up at 5:45) and eating cleaner (Oatmeal with protein powder and fruit for breakfast and some leftovers for lunch which did included some leftover veggies and... chicken wings...I know, I know, but they were way too good to waste. At least they're chock full of protein and they were relatively lean, as far as chicken wings go.) I'm still holding strong on avoiding sugar which is a major goal of mine these days. I know it's only day 2 but it feels good. I have a giant salad with some mixed greens, black beans, tomatoes, roasted chicken and almonds already put together for dinner. Trying to stay on top of things to avoid temptations...like getting too hungry and suddenly too lazy to make good choices, a common pitfall of mine these days. I'm a work in progress...
One VERY happy girl! Yay!
Of to do some core-healing with Bethany Learn...
