Every mom knows that working out with kids is tough but it doesn’t have to be all work – check out my slideshow on Shape.com “29 Ways to Workout at the Park” for ideas on how to use your local park for a fun and free workout. (Kids totally optional but they do add some extra resistance!)
And because I’m still on vacay, I had to share with you guys what we did yesterday: Gym Hubby, me and ALL our kids hiked to 13,000(ish) feet! It was a total rush and also kinda surreal – it left me breathless in more ways than one, especially considering where we live in Minnesota is only 900 feet above sea level.
Here’s my four-year-old and I at the very top! He liked it I swear. Either that or he’s passing out from lack of oxygen. Whatevs.
Even Jelly Bean insisted on climbing the rocks herself. (With help from Grandpa of course!) She screamed when we pulled her off to go back down.
My sister and I part way up with some of the kids. I was SO STINKING PROUD of the little guys! My seven-year-old even ran part of the trail with me.
It’s hard to show exactly how high 13,000 feet is… but wow, seriously. Just wow. If you ever get a chance to go to the Rocky Mountains, do it!!
I miss you guys! We’ll be home and regular posting will resume next week!
