Yesterday we took the boys to an indoor waterpark. You know, one of those ones with multi-story slides, lazy rivers, and a huge hot tub. (Thank goodness for the hot tub – one of the reasons I don’t like swimming is I get cold easily.)
Two of the slides had the option of riding a raft or a tube down the slide with another person. I went down the slide with each kid multiple times. Which meant I walked up a ton of stairs multiple times, often while carrying a double person inner tube. Then, after an absolutely wicked fun ride down the tube, I had to get my butt out and then drag out the tube. And then walk back up the stairs to do it again.
This is why I stay fit. I’m not going to be the mom sitting in a chair on the side while my kids have fun. As long as they’ll let me ride with them, I’m going to be the mom providing the heavy weight in the back to make the tube/raft go crazier. I’m going to be the mom who says yes whenever the kids want me to join them in something active.
(I may also be the mom who is a little sore today because I’ve been slacking on the upper body/core workouts this summer, but we won’t talk too much about that. No actual pictures included because I was too busy playing with my boys.)
