Little Gym Rats

Rainy days used to look something like this...

Now, they're more like this...

The kids' FIRST day going to the gym!

We recently decided to add our little peeps to our gym membership. Conor and I both love to work out - and love our gym. We've been members since we got married - and each day it's what keeps our minds, hearts, and bodies strong. We both agree it makes us better parents. For the last few years I have gotten up every morning at 5am so I could hit the gym before Conor headed out for work. It was worth every sleepless moment.

NOW, I get to go with the kids in the middle of the day. Cal Fit has a great program for our little athletes with "active hour," games, swim lessons, face painting, playgrounds, coloring.. you name it. It's a great way for them to socialize with other kids AND it's AMAZING to have a break in the day for us all. In fact, it's heavenly.

Seriously, I find myself working my tail off in spin class and smiling like a crazy person (is this why no one sits on the bike next to me =). It's like I have DIED and gone to mommy heaven. I know my kids are being taken care of beautifully, they are happy, and having a fantastic time. There are no words to explain what a little break in the day/routine has down for all of us. All I can say is the smiles are contagious! ;)

Happy Ally and Mommy

Also, the weekends have been a blast too. We're finally able to go as a complete family... something that was very important to us and long overdue. I cannot recommend this enough to other families who have the option. It's been the best decision we have made to date. The kiddos talk about it non-stop AND they are learning healthy habits they will carry with them the rest of their lives. We LOVE it!

Playing outside the gym - can't wait to get inside!

We hope you all had a great weekend! Happy Monday!
