Winter Break

Winter break flew by. It was a fun break though it's nice to get back into a rountine. After Christmas, I took advantage of a free weekly pass we were given to a nearby fitness club. Fun for the whole family, we played basketball, racquetball, rock climbing, and enjoyed the pool / hot tub / sauna. The girls loved the rock wall and water slide, and the short time in the kidz zone while we worked out. The boys loved racquetball, the lap pool, and the gym. We went almost everyday for a week- ya, I hurt, but I'd love to join. It makes working-out fun!

Yikes! Those are my girls way up their. No fear, for most things. The first time Sophie & Sage climbed to the top, they didn't weigh enough to get down from the pulley, so they hung there calling for help. The workers had to loosen the tension then added an extra rope for next time, and sure enough, they wanted to climb again. They keep me laughing and had quite an audience. It's been awhile since I've done something like this, it's not as easy as it looks anymore, but I rung the bell on each one! That's my workout for the month :)

Sage (pink) was the catcher, notice the picture on the left of her catching Trevor to help him down :). My battery died before I could get pics of them on the water slide, but I'm sure you can imagine. They've been asking to go back already. The first day it was just me & the girls in the leisure pool, while the boys swam laps, but this day I didn't get wet so Josh & Trevor caught them on the slide (after going down first) about a dozen times. It was cute to watch- I think they were all worn out, but such great smiles!


Sledding was another fun past time. Farewell to winter break, it was fun but now it's time to hit the books and concentrate on school, with a lot of fun mixed in.

Wow!! I am so impressed re: the climbing wall. We tried with the girls last month but they were interested but then quickly overwhelmed. We'll try again soon....

I know you are so proud of them and their bravery!!

I have no desire to join our local gym. But if it had awesome stuff like a rock climbing wall and water slides, I think I'd feel differently!

Dittos on how impressed I am with the climbing wall. Wow, they are so high up and they look like they are having an absolute blast. We have a lot of good friends that are rock climbing are we're looking forward to getting N&S into trying it. (Ed tried once at the Y but they were a bit too young...maybe a bit later....)

Happy New Year to you...
