Yahoo! I went for a walk again today, something that is pretty rare since the birth of my fourth child eight months ago. But I feel so good after that, it makes me wonder what I was waiting for!

Well, this is how the setup goes anyway. Molly(8 mos.) goes in the Baby Bjorn carrier, Noah(3yrs.) and Knox(2yrs.) sit in the jogger stroller, while Gracie(4yrs.) and I walk. Rather, I walk and poor Gracie runs! It was actually pathetic to see her trying to keep up with me even though I wasn't going all that fast and we took two breaks during a half hour walk! But, leave it up toTexas weather to make the whole experience miserable for us. Imagine 80 degrees but so much humidity that it feels more like 90 easily. Yuck! Makes me wonder what we were thinking moving away from the Bay area! Nevertheless, it was so good to move again, and I did get some exercise, even if it was from putting on shoes and loading up the stroller and the baby carrrier!

Hi Emily!

I have 4 kids 6 and under (6, 4,3 and 10 months)so I can not imagine what your day is like with 4 and under.
We are from the Bay Area in CA, is that what you were referring to? We are on the East coast now and I miss the weather so much!
I'll be back to see you soon.

Hi, Jasmine! Thanks for stopping by! Yes, we just moved from the San Francisco Bay area in CA. Miss the gorgeous year round weather, but don't miss the politics or the traffic!

I don't miss that either! We moved 2 1/2 years ago to the East Coast from Benicia in the East Bay. Where were you?
You have been added to my blog list, hope you don't mind.

We were in Castro Valley and Fremont, but my husband worked in Palo Alto, and could not have been happier to say goodbye to the toll on Hwy 92. Thanks for adding me to your list! I am honored! :)
