Weekend Fun: Active Lifestyle Getaways For The Whole Family

Encouraging an active lifestyle for the whole family can be quite a high priority for any parent. Ensuring that your children and yourselves are fully fit while nourishing your body with the food it needs to function. So there is no surprise that many parents consider want the opportunity to enjoy quality time as a family, while still embracing their active lifestyle. Yes, everyone needs to live a little, but we still need to make sure we are taking care of ourselves. As the new year approaches, the thought of our lifestyles may be in focus, and you may be wanting to make some changes to increase your fitness levels and diet. So I thought it would be the perfect time to share with you some of the family escapes you can enjoy while still embracing that lifestyle change. It’s time for some fun with kids.


Consider a hiking adventure for a great active choice

Hiking is a great way to enjoy time with your family while still working on increasing your activity. Hiking doesn’t have to be a chore or boring, it can actually feel like you are all embarking on a real adventure into the mountains or forest. Armed with a few essentials in your backpack you can take on the elements. It’s a great way to increase your heartrate and enjoy all the feelings of a good workout, with an added element of family time and fun. Whether it’s a Sunday stroll or a weekend away, hiking could become a family tradition and part of the routine.

Why not make a weekend out of your adventure and go camping?

Hiking is one thing, but combining it with a camping adventure in the mountains somewhere like Davis Mountains State Park could be the perfect combination. Camping isn’t just about sleeping under the stars, although that is a great benefit and wonderful thing to do. But it’s also about problem solving, lifting and hauling camping gear and being at one with nature. Not only a great way to spend an active weekend, but it can also be very educational to learn about the animals and your surroundings.

Jump on your bike and cycle

If you are looking for an alternative way to spend your weekend while still being active, then look no further than a family bike ride. Staying local and enjoying the park and your surrounding, or loading the bikes onto the car and exploring somewhere new is a great way to spend the weekend. But, biking is also a great way to increase fitness and your activity. Plus children love any opportunity to show off on their bikes and enjoy the great outdoors. What’s not to like?

Have fun in the water embracing the sports on offer

Finally, there is nothing quite like getting in the water and enjoying the many activities on offer. That might be swimming, or even water sports like jet skis, water skiing or even some fun water sports. Whether you head to the lake or your closest beach, it’s a great way to enjoy a getaway with the family while still ensuring you remain active.

I hope this has inspired you for your active lifestyle next year.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
