Workout Day

22 Apr

Monday was a busy morning! Erin had to get Bridget up and ready for kindergarten, get Logan and Maeve up and ready to take Bridget to kindergarten, get herself ready to take them all out, feed everyone breakfast, and get going so Bridget wasn’t late. I wasn’t awake during all of this because waking up at 6am is definitely still a challenge that I have not mastered yet, but I did wake up to hear Erin yelling at Bella (her white fluffy puppy) to get back in the house.

Bella is used to being locked in her kennel whenever Erin goes somewhere because she can’t be trusted to not potty in the house, but because TJ and I were home she left Bella out. Erin only usually does this when Bella gets to go bye-bye with them, so of course the second Erin opened the door to the garage, Bella went sprinting out there and right into the van. I had to go grab her so Erin could get out the door. Silly Bella!

While Erin was out dropping Bridget off, TJ and I got ready because we were going to the gym with Erin when she got back. So after she got back she loaded Logan and Maeve into the jogging stroller and off we went to the gym.

She dropped off the 2 kiddos at the children’s area so we could workout without having to worry about them. The workout was really nice, but hard. You see, I haven’t really done anything even remotely similar to working out since I was in high school, and I graduated in 2007. It was good for me though because I definitely need to get back into shape! I’ve been eating way too many yummy things lately :P

After the workout we picked the kids up and took them over to the park so they could run around and get some fresh air before we walked back home.

Maeve made a bee-line for the stairs on the jungle-gym and of course didn’t want help to get up them! But she did allow TJ to take her down the slide.
Then miss Maeve wanted to ride on the dino rocker with Logan. She then wanted to ride on her own on the elephant.
Then Logan and Maeve both wanted to go down the slide so Erin and TJ went with them!

After we left the park we hung out at home until it was time to pick up Bridget, and then we all went out to Wal*Mart. Woo… super fun outing! Yeah, not really… but TJ and I did get some stuff for working out. I got some awesome 3lb weights (because I’m Super Weakling!), and TJ found a set of 40lb weights. TJ has until the 26th to get ready for his test for the Tucson PD, so since he has to majorly get working out, I might as well too :P

After we got back from home, the kids wanted to go play outside, so I got dinner rolling.

While Bridget was outside playing, she got blue chalk all over her face because she and Logan were drawing on the concrete in chalk. It was very cute :P

After dinner was made, and we sat down to eat, I insisted on a family picture! Remember guys

After dinner it was time to get the kiddos into their pajamas and ready for bed!

Logan had a better idea though. Who needs pajamas when you can roll around with your sister’s toys? :P

Once pajamas were on and playtime was *mostly* over, it was finally time for bedtime stories and goodnight kisses.

I wasn’t just reading stories to Bridget and Logan, I was reading to Erin’s furry children too!
Bridget was ready for bedtime kisses, and TJ was tucking Logan into bed while Erin was putting Maeve down for night-night.

After the kiddos were down I finally got a chance to work on my blog entry… or so I thought anyways!!!

Why are they so good at “helping”???

Today was a good day. But I learned a very important lesson. I REALLY need to workout more!!!
