Who needs a gym during summer...

I though one of the first things I would do after moving is join a local gym.  Well, I have been touring a few places but still unsure of what to do.  So many choices and really confusing as I wait to hear about job possibilities for myself. (Did I tell you I have been applying for some teaching jobs- still waiting on God's leading.) 

So far I have checked out Planet Fitness, YMCA, Snap, and the local Rec area.  Each vary in prices, location, and what they offer.  I like more classes, I want child care option, and well it makes it difficult.  

So this week I have had some fun working out in my neighborhood.  My daughter is a great warm up partner and I am always impressed with her running skills.  We have a lot of hills here and she did not give up and we had a ton of fun running down them.  



 Isn't this view breath taking?  I had to stop my job and just take it in!  You can see our new church and home and amazing Mississippi River.  I am absolutely loving the view and just cant get enough of it.  



So while my husband joins the local rec center I am just going to enjoy working out here!  :) 


Not only is it fun to run near the river but today I also worked out at the park while the kids played.  There is a super neat park that allows some easy work outs for parents.  WOOT!  :)  Do you have a gym membership during summer?

I am sore today, I have worked out two days in a row after 2 weeks off- WOW, I feel out of shape after only 2 weeks!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
