Happy 4th - Happy Kid!

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

My son, Nicholas, enjoying watermelon at the baseball game last night. I love this picture of him.

They had a kid's carnival and he got to play games, jump in the bounce house, win an inflatable monkey toy, get a new baseball hat, made a new friend, have some ice cream and a hot dog and watermelon, see lots of home runs, and enjoy the fireworks. For a change, Nicholas was very well behaved, didn't run off (thank goodness, because there we SO many people there last night!!) and made a very pleasant night for us. I got in two extra walks of almost two miles total due to how far away I had to park, but that was OK.

The team our local team played was from Great Britain, supposedly the best talent from their nation. Um.. Well, the Keene SwampBats beat them 33-0. The SwampBats are college baseball students from around the country and they come to the New England Collegiate Baseball League to practice in a wooden bat league. They often get drafted to major leagues the following year. Still, expected the game to be somewhat of a GAME.. a challenge, not a wipe-out! The game ended at the 7th on mercy rule, since it wasn't a standard competition, but an exhibition.

I LOVE fireworks! I took a video of the fireworks. Actually, two - one short one 1.5 minutes and the other is 9 minutes and includes the finale. I'll try to post those later.

  He is such a cute kid and I love that most of the time in all of your pictures and blogs he is smiling...probably due to the great parenting he is receiving.

    You are beautiful, I am beautiful, Nessa nd Nicholas are beautiful... we are all beautiful.

I love the VLOGS. I don't think I am coordinated enough to run a camera phone and walk... I'm still getting my balance back.

But go Nessa, go!!! And go to you too, girl!

Rock-It Challenge Plan

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

We have to make a fitness plan for at least three days this week - 30 minutes or more each time to get our points for the Rock-It Team challenge. I'm on the Wave Runners team.

Basically, I plan to dance every night (well, at least 5 nights) at least half an hour, walk a mile (which is 20-30 minutes) every day - but this is weather dependent so I can commit to four days, and hula hoop 15 minutes three times this week or more (also weather dependent).

Sun- Hooped 15 minutes, Walked 20 , Danced 88 minutes, huge strength training abs/core workout

Mon.- Hooped 19 minutes, Walked 37 minutes, Danced 38 minutes

Tues. - Will walk a mile and dance half an hour, hoop
(I danced 52 minutes - after midnight and I record it for Tuesday)

Wed- will walk a mile and dance half an hour, hoop

Thurs.- will walk a mile and dance half an hour, hoop

Friday- will walk a mile and dance half an hour

Sat- walk dog before leaving (driving two point five to three hours to Maine) and walk on beach if possible (if not too late after arriving and not high tide)

Links About Hoops, Feel Good Chemicals from Exercise, Music

How to Make a Hula Hoop

This looks easy. I may be able to do this myself. It's just the racheting cutting tool that I'm not sure about.


This is a great article about the brain chemicals we get from exercise, which supposedly are even better from hooping.


Song stuck in my head today -
"Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen. Amusing music video, too. Worth a look if you haven't seen it yet.


My son is at baseball camp. I only slept three hours before having to get up to take him there. I planned to sleep a couple hours while he was there, but they just called to tell me he was not participating and was just sitting in the bullpen moping. I talked to him and he was upset that his friend from last week wasn't there. I motivated him to get up and go try to participate, somehow. I hope that he does and I don't get another call. He was the youngest one there for sure. Last week they had over 100 boys and this week maybe 40-50. It was a discounted week for boys in our town last week, so that is probably why.. Also it's a vacation week for many people, I think. I hope he has fun. I'm not sure when I can sleep!

Got another call from my son and didn't understand hardly a word. They just called me to come get him now because he won't participate. Bummer!

    I had the hardware guy cut mine and then used a metal rasp to even it up.

A heat tool is invaluable to soften the tubing to insert the coupler.

I love that I made my own hoop!

So sorry about your son - it's tough for kids to do activities without someone they know. But what a good opportunity to meet new kids.

Here's hoping you get a nap!
