an afternoon at the park

Scarlett and I discovered a park right near our house that we'd never been to before. It's an awesome park with multiple play structures, water play areas, hiking and walking trails and tons of soccer fields. We even did a little "letterboxing" there and although we didn't have a personal stamp or anything, it was still super fun to find the "treasure" as Scarlett called it. Scarlett had a blast and I'm pretty sure we'll end up spending many an afternoon there in the future...










Do you have an awesome park near your home?

daily burn

Are any of you doing Daily Burn? It's a program online where you get a daily workout video to complete and it also provides you with nutritional plans and coaching designed to help you reach your own individual fitness/health goals. 




I signed up for the free trial month and I finally did my first daily workout today - I'm dying! So much sweat, so many jelly muscles! But I already feel better and more energized and I'm looking at it as training for visiting Disneyland in a few weeks - after my week with the flu, I need to get my energy and stamina back up!

we went to the zoo...

We decided to take a little trip to the zoo today and we had the best time! We only spent a few hours there, but it was the perfect amount of time to see all of the animals and go on some rides before Scarlett tired out completely. We even went on the sky ride and got to see everything from way up high in the sky. I went by myself on the ride [I was too freaked out to try and squish all three of us into one car] and it was the most peaceful twenty minutes I've had in weeks... Next time, I might have to go on it twice! Here are about a million photos from our day...





















































Scarlett even took a few photos with her tablet - I'll have to try and get them onto my computer so I can share the zoo from her point of view, too.
