Morning mamas! I have a question for ya. When was the last time you went outside to play with your kiddos? I don't think I liked that answer!
I make it a point to take my girls to the park at least once a week, but usually it's a few times a week. And I don't just sit on the sidelines like all the other moms, I get up and join them in the fun! And I break out a sweat. We all need to stay active, why not do it while we have fun too. Today, since it's been super hot here in Texas, we went out and played with the water hose, our grass got wattered too and we took the neighbors dog a bath (because we got a free dog shampoo sample). The girls had so much fun. I was also able to get some laundry done and it was dry by the time we got done (and bathed, inside).
Here's a picture from Saturday evening... daddy was with us, so he was able to watch the girls play a bit while I walk/jogged two miles! Yeah, mom!
And on Friday, the girls were invited to join in the end of the summer party at the Pharr Aquatic Center (for reading over 20 books at the Summer Reading Program! It was our first time there and we hope to go back in a few weeks for Yvette's birthday!
So, come on, I challenge you and your family to get up and play before summer is gone! Please share a comment below how you had fun outside with your kids!
