Exercise, exercise, exercise

We live on a hill. Not a little hill, but a steep large hill that makes your ears pop when you drive all the way up hill. The town is in the valley (of course) and we live oh, about 4-5 blocks up the hill. All last summer I would strap the babies in the stroller after supper and push them down to town. We would walk along, admire the river and general just enjoy ourselves. Then as bedtime neared we would start the haul up the hill. The kids loved it immensely and I ended up loosing a whole size before summer was done. Not to say I didn’t gain it back over the winter. Ugh.

So today we started again. Weather was in the 50-60’s and the sun was shining. It was nice to have the husband along and we had a nice time walking (albeit today was before supper). When we started the walk up the hill Josiah was walking, so I didn’t say anything. Before the end of the first block, however, my sister decided to ask him if he wanted to ride! 30 pounds added to that stroller and I couldn’t make it another whole block! Everyone ended up trading the pushing. Looks like it is going to be a long summer if I do this walk by myself every night again.
