Spring is officially here, and we even got a little tease of summer-like temperatures recently. The warmer months really bring us together as a family, and we enjoy spending quality time by getting active whether it’s riding our bike around the neighborhood, gardening together or playing hide and seek.
Last year we really got into the bike riding when we started using a seat attachment for my husband’s bike that Emma could sit in. Toward the end of the summer, she started growing out of it so this year we purchased a bike trailer for her and we’ll use the other seat for the baby. We can’t wait to get out there and enjoy the warm fresh air and get some exercise as a family. With all of the sweet treats that we tend to eat in the summer, we’ll need that balance in our lives.
Together CountPls is a nationwide program inspiring active and healthy living. The principle behind the program is Energy Balance, which means balancing the calories we consume with the calories we burn. It’s a first-of-its kind coalition that brings together more than 195 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and professional sports organizations.
