Exercise is fun to do

The birds are chirping, the grass is getting green and the days are longer. Spring is here, for the most part, where I live. It’s about time.  Although I probably should be on alert for the occasional snowstorm that could blow through at any given moment! Anyway, there isn’t anything better than a beautiful evening when you can spend some time outside with your family. Winters around here bring plenty of tv and video game time, so the fresh air and beautiful scenery are a welcome guest!

This past week I have tried to take advantage of every possible nice evening and get out with my kids. They need it and love it just as much as I do!

Luckily, I have three boys who all love to be active and be outside. It’s pretty easy for me, most days, to suggest going for a bike ride or a run and they jump right on it! Something that has been fun for all of us is having my older boys ride their bikes while I run with my baby in the jogging stroller. It’s not strenuous and crazy for anyone. We just go for a leisurely run/ride and enjoy the evening together.

We have so much fun together and it brings us closer as a family. I would suggest finding something that you and your kids can enjoy together! We all know how miserable it can be when you are dragging them along and they are hating every.single.minute. I will be changing it up in the near future, I’m sure, because the bike rides/runs won’t be nearly as exciting for my boys. They will be ready for something new and I’m okay with that.

I would love to hear what fun and active things you do as a family! How can we incorporate exercise into their loves without them even really realizing that’s what they are getting?
