You'll never guess what I did for my birthday! My wife (she's 41), my grand daughter (she's 4), & me (42 on the 11th) went to the Aiken State Park and we had a great day. We played on the tire swings, ate a great picnic lunch, and went for a great five mile hike. My beautiful wife took the lead for a few minutes but we got a real surprise as our baby took the lead for about two and a half miles! She was running the whole time and gave grandma and papa a run for our money. Did I mention that she turned four in November? That was a great way to celebrate a birthday! Sometimes I wonder why we are so interested in exercise and getting in shape and then we have a moment like this that is so worthwhile and fun. All of the hard work has got to be for something and I am sure that being healthy in my old age will be good but I am choosing to enjoy my time exercising with my family! It is full of smiles, love, and plain old fun, fun, fun!!!
