They are like labradors!

They NEED their walk! My kids are like labs.. if they don't get their exercise they go BONKERS! We've taken to "walking" them in the evening (and sometimes during the day too!) and it seems to help our evening routine go a bit smoother...

We went on a "flashlight walk" tonight b/c it was dark out at ... 4:30pm. Lily was running and saying "this is fun! Running is fun!" and Jason joined in. They loved using their flashlights in the dark! We walked them all around the neighborhood and up the biggest hill around this hood and still it took them a while to fall asleep!

Lily gets little bits of one on one mommy time while Jason is sleeping. This afternoon she just wanted to snuggle w/ me. It was so sweet and nice to just sit w/ her... usually she is competing w/ the whirling dirvish! :)

  1. snuggle time is the best! The walks actually sound fun. I wish we would get off our duff and take walks in the evenings! Last winter Andy took the kids for a walk and they all had their headlamps on. They LOVED it!

  6. We, too, love walking and often go on nighttime walks. The kids especially love it around Christmas time when we can see all the lights and decorations!

  7. Too cute! I have a feeling all of these Seattle coffee club babes are going to be little runners! I'm finding laps around the house are a good way to get my own exercise in!
