Working Out as a Family

 I love taking the kids to the gym, running and teaching them the importance of staying fit. 
 It's hard but well worth the time hubby and I spend on making dinner together. This summer Justin and Christopher are learning on how to cook meals. It's a great teaching skill to have since it won't be too long when they both decide it's time to move out. I know they are still young but time flies by. I want them to be confident in themselves to be able to take care of themselves without any help. We look up recipes plan out the week. It takes time you only have one body and it's the only place you will live in for the rest of your life. Mind as well take care of it.

Weight lifting Justin is finding hard to do because muscles don't appear over night like he wants them to. It's a long road ahead. As long as we  keep our family on track we will continue to be a fit family. We have a lot of fun with it. We join races track our steps we compete with each other. It never seems like we have to do it. We want to. With kids it can be hard to change eating habits, TV time ect. We limit two hours a day to the web and TV. I think the hardest part for people when trying to change their lifestyle is being happy no matter what. When you change your mind your way of thinking anything is possible in LIFE. Just keep smiling you are worth it.

Football Clinic

Last Saturday our boys wanted to take a football clinic. I have to say they were troopers on this day. It was hot as could be. You could probably cook an egg outside it was so hot. 
 Christopher is definitely different than his brother on this one. Justin when he was little well even before he could walk is always on the go 100% of the time. He is outside no matter hot or cold he is an outdoors person. Christopher forget it if he plays a sport it has to be a Jan-Feb time frame. If he is outside it better be in the water or he wants nothing to do with it. He just makes me laugh. A parent from wrestling asked Christopher if he was singing up for summer football. He looked right at him and reply "Nope not in a million years!" I was dead after he said that. I couldn't believe oh wait yes I could believe it he said it. Christopher holds nothing back ever.

It ran from 10 am to 12:30 by far way too much time in the heat. Justin is considering joining. He did win second place. 

Summer is going by way to fast already a month has gone by. School will be starting back up soon. What are you doing for summer so far? Let me know in the comments.

Taste of Brevard County

Here are the latest pieces.  This one was for Memorial Day. I love this one. I was taken back by the Mayor of Cocoa talking about his family history in the Military. I was blown away by all those incredible men that didn't think twice to  protect our Country. I come from a big Military family but for the life of me I can't remember my family ever talking about my Grandpa, Uncle, Cousins or hubby ever making this day a big event. I'm not talking about BBQ's and swimming which is fun and all but NO meaning No understanding. It was nice to be able to explain to our boys why this day was special. We have what we have because some gave the ultimate sacrifice. I think what is missing in today's world is just that. Passing on stories of the past. We can read all we want. The real life interactions is what counts person to person. I'm happy we where able to give that to our boys last Monday.

This is Cocoa
