Living the "online" life of a blogger has many advantages, but one of the BIG disadvantages is more time on computer = less time being active (the dreaded "blogger ten"). I am on the hunt to start exercising again, my first step was purchasing a new pair of running shoes. The next step was finding more outside activities I can do with my kids away from the computer. Combing time with kids and exercising is the best of both worlds.
Today we participated in an activity I had on my list: Kayaking. My 6 year old twins are old enough to help with the rowing – and my husband and I each take one with us on a two person kayak. While we are kayaking my older son enjoys Windsurfing.
I even left my BlackBerry in the car during the Kayaking <gulp>. Sad but true, it was hard for me unplug.
I am looking for other outside family activities other then bike rides, scootering and hiking – which we do already. We also do this game called "wrestling on the grass", which comes naturally for my house-of-3-boys. But mama prefers not to wrestle.
Any other ideas for outside family activities?
That is all for now, back outside to spend time with the kiddies…
