Craig and I regularly TRAIN and its something that we both enjoy. Craig really enjoys it. I just enjoy it. Thankfully we have our own equipment in the garage ie barbells, plates, squat rack, dumbells, and rings so it cuts down on time away from the family-and free is always good on the budget. A lot of times we are all in the garage cheering Daddy and Mommy on and watching the boys try to imitate our movements. Its really funny: they like to grunt and pretend to strain (They already aren't welcome at Planet Fitness). We warm up in the house and this is how it usually goes. Foam rolling with the boys laying all over us or them "warming up" too. We love that we can pass this love of fitness on to them!

Speirs and Wyatt love all things Firefighting. I know Craig loves that they love what he does-and I do too. I am so proud of Craig. It sounds cheesy, but I know my husband would lay down his life serving others if that's what it came to. I obviously don't ever want anything to happen to him- but it doesn't scare me when he tells me that they had a fire call. I get excited knowing that he was able to help someone on a potentially really bad day. Plus we get fire calls all the time around here and I have two small firefighters that gladly run around putting them out!

This is where our boys spend most of their mornings and afternoons. My parents bought this table for Christmas last year and it has been worth every. single. penny. The sand table doesn't look like this anymore, as all of the sand is pretty much on the patio. After the thousandth time of saying, "Keep the sand in the box," I relented and let them put it on the porch. They seem to have more fun that way, and I do too. It's nice to just relax and let things get messy sometimes.

We traveled back to Dan Nicholas Park in Salisbury, NC recently and it was a great success! Wyatt was able to run around instead of sit in the stroller and Speirs had a lot of fun too. DN Park is a true gem! The prices are fair (you can't beat 50 cents for activities), the animals (petting zoo and zoo) are always a hit and the sweet playgrounds are great too! We also rode the train and the carousel- Not a bad day! Then Craig and I decided to treat ourselves to lunch and coffee and a ride through uptown Charlotte....because it's only right up the road:)
This is typical of how walking around goes with the boys. Speirs trying really hard to keep up....and Wyatt too.
We like to play too.
I absolutely love Speirs face.
