Healthy Living Weekly Post: An Active Lifestyle

This was definitely an active lifestyle week for me! My 6-year-old twin nieces were here for their summer visit and here's a look at our active week in photos.

MONDAY - first riding lesson with no training wheels, on the grass and a slight incline to get the feel for the bike without training wheels.

 TUESDAY - second riding lesson, in the cul-de-sac, learning to use the brakes to stop and not fall over.

 WEDNESDAY - third riding lesson, they could both start and stop by themselves and we practiced wide turns.

 THURSDAY - after the fourth riding lesson & one scraped leg each, we enjoyed running through the sprinklers to cool off!
Anybody else notice that summer time is much better for maintaining an active lifestyle?

What a great series of photos - and what a fab auntie you are! Looking forward to a more active time myself - if only our rain would hold off for a while.

Oh Melissa, what great photos. I can just imagine the stories they are sharing in school with all the details of their visit with their aunt. The memories you create for these children are priceless.
You are a jewel.
