Ribbons, rocks, and leaves

That's what we found on our treasure hunt today. I've been walking with the kids. Even though I'm working the next few nights, I decided to get 'em up and out! It's almost 40 degrees outside, so really quite pleasant. We walked up and down the road and climbed hills, all the while me pushing the stroller and the tricycle that my two year old always insists she'll ride and doesn't.
Well, she does ride it until we get out of the radius of the house, when I can't just leave it behind.
Last year I was out with the kids every day for at least an hour and sometimes more than 5. It's good to start this up again, winter is hard with a baby, and MI winters are frigid!
And starting yesterday, I made the leap to give up pop. Huge step. I love my pop. LOVE! I soothed myself with diet, and because it's not that tasty, I don't mind drinking water instead.
So while I'm not exactly eating better, I'm not getting 2000 or more of those empty yummy sugar calories.
And I'm starting to think about quitting smoking. I tried once with Chantix, and might restart that. If I only take it for a few weeks, to get over that first hurdle.
Life is good, friends! Keep sparking!
As we were walking, my two year old said, "I'm really tired! we walk really far!" LOL. Guess she needs to build up strength too!
