About Justin's form, hmmm, let's talk. Okay, let's not. Just keep in mind, his Wii Fit age was 50! Oh goodness, what old friends we have.
Fortunately, Jade had her helmet and knee pads on when she took a spin on her Barbie bike for the first time. Which is important since I am a bit of a worry-wart. She was a little frightened during the whole experience, but she stuck to it. The first few times she would start to lose her balance, she would just let go of the handlebars. She learned after a few times that that just wasn't the way to go.
After a few laps up and down the street, she was able to do it on her own. As she finished her final lap, she turned to the drive way, pushed back to brake and fell to the ground. Luckily, her knee pads protected her from any harm and she was excited to ride a bike and no tears were shed. She just grinned and gave us high five's.

Jade doing the tree pose. Notice the yellow circle with the red circle smack dab in the middle of it. Talk about knowing her core!
And again beautifully balanced on the other side as well. I may have a yoga buddy as well as a running buddy.
Now, Ivy's approach is totally different. Stand, drink, smile, get off, get back on. Pretty much whatever she wants to do. The best part is the trainer yelling at her every time she gets off. Well, one day she'll get it. But until then...
we can let her run "in place" chasing the dog on the short run. By the way, "in place" for Ivy means all over the family room.

Well, wish me luck on this running endeavor. By the way, swimming and Wii Fit are the other components of getting Amy fit.

All four of the kids had a blast and didn't want to stop. But, alas, it was time for Ivy's nap. So we packed up the wagon and the scooter in the pack of Grandpa's truck and headed home.
If Scott is riding, this is my perfect Saturday morning.
Scott and the boys, (Mike, Trevor and Mark) got up early and headed out west for some riding that is closer than the Sand Dunes. (And much less crowded for a holiday weekend). They prepared for rain and cold. As you can tell, they had no rain. They did have a lot of mud. All in all, they had a really good time.
I'm really glad that all four of the guys brought additional clothes so that the inside of my car doesn't look like their faces and the four wheelers. Mud is pretty fun to ride in, but not so much fun to have to clean up. And after a mud day- there is A LOT of clean up.

Jade and Mrs Haygood
We are putting aside our old video recorder and picking up our new Sony HDR- SR11 with a 60 GB hard drive. No more worries about recording over something, or wondering what tape Jade's first steps was recorded on. No more fast forwarding or rewinding. WE'VE GONE DIGITAL! I'm so excited.
Last night, I came home from work, to a dance concert in my family room. The music was blaring and the camera was rolling. The girls had a blast and we got to relive it at the touch of a button. (Okay, I know you watch a video right after, but you have to rewind it and guess if you are in the right spot yet). We'll have to post some of the action soon.
PS- Here is one of the few edits Scott did many years ago. Look forward to new videos soon.

Scott went down to the sand dunes with Mark, Cody and Mike. They had a fantastic time and NO ONE got hurt. They did have a quad that required some work, but handy Scott and Cody were able to take it apart and put it back together during lunch. It really is great to have such a handy husband.
Mom, Kat and the boys came over for some Slippery Slide, trampoline and blow-up pool action. The kids had a blast together and NO ONE got hurt.
