Fresh food, fresh air & fitness!

This past weekend northeast Ohio experienced a fake spring. The weather was high 60’s/low 70’s. Absolutely perfect. My goal is always to get my bonus daughters outside and just enjoy nature. Unplug and get your bodies moving. My youngest was enjoying taking photos of the beautiful sky!

As well as moving our bodies and getting outside, we really try to get them to eat healthy. Both of them suffer with health issues and i want to teach them how much our diets effect every area of our lives. For the few days a month they are at our house we only eat at home. We don’t keep any junk food, processed food or prepackaged food in the house and we encourage lots of fruits and veggies. The girls always eat really well and always seem to enjoy what we cook them. Healthy food is delicious and cooking at home is sooooo much healthier than eating out. Even if it’s the exact same meal!

Chicken and sweet potato chips
Sometimes the girls don’t want to go but we still make sure we get out and enjoy the beautiful day. Can’t push, just encourage!

A Beautiful ending to 2021!

Today was gorgeous. It was 50° and sunny. Not your typical weather for the end of December in Cleveland Ohio. We of course decided we needed to spend the day outside. After our morning workout we headed to Huron. The public boat launch looked like a summer afternoon! We fished on the pier with our friend, Gene. I was super excited to use my brand new wagon that john got me for Christmas! My dad was doing important year end stuff for work, but during his break they brought Abby for a walk and joined us!!! I was able to take photos while the boys tended to the rods in the lake. I also made lots of four legged friends. We ended up with 2 perch just over 11” each. While John was bleeding out the fish, he also bled himself out 🙄. Thank goodness he married a nanny whose mother is a nurse. We cleaned with some water, put a bandaid on it and then wrapped it with a clean sock! He was good as new, at least enough to get us home. Overall excellent day spent with friends and family.

Nature Walk

Slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures in life…

This weekend John and i went on a nature walk. We went to Old Woman’s Creek, in Huron Ohio. We were hoping to catch some eagles flying around, but I’m sure they were out earlier in the morning. It was a warm morning, but it was beautiful. The park has several dozen small bird houses that attract so many different species of birds! We also saw a bullfrog and tons of chipmunks. On the creek there was a couple kayaking. They were as happy about the beautiful day as we were.
