I figured as much, but most times if I try to join them my kids lose interest and want to go play video games....

My kids stay out as long as possible, too. Their favorite spring-time activity is picking dandelions. But climbing trees, digging in the dirt, collecting pine-cones, etc., are all very popular. I was more looking for activities that would involve all of us, and give me a bit of exercise, too.

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Col. 3:23

You can keep the kids indoors in this weather? Mine will only come in when told or to get drinks

We do a lot of walking, biking and hiking. I must say, the culture here lends itself well to staying active.

In CHRIST I can!

Great idea! Sounds really fun, and good for all age levels. And I could play, too, which is great!

When my kids started playing soccer, they weren't very good about stealing the ball (which really was a good thing, character wise, lol), so we made up our own game to practice this. We called it "ball hog". Basically we all tried to hog the ball to ourselves and not let anyone else steal it. It was good exercise. It kept us running, and worked our abs pretty well from all the laughing :-)

Other than that, we mostly like to take walks.

If your kids are into any special tv shows or books, maybe you could make up some games or activities based on those. I'm sure the kids can help you come up with ideas. Kids are usually way more creative than adults.

Anybody have some really cool ideas for exercising out-of-doors with your kids now that spring is in full swing?
