Gym Time!

Unfortunately, my visit here in KY doesn't mean I get to slack off on my workouts. And thankfully, Mom and Dad have a little workout room in their basement. I've been encouraging Dad to eat better and workout and gave him a diet plan. He has done so well with it. He lost 11 pounds the first week! Way to go, Dad! This weekend, we recruited Mom and Abby Kate to feel the burn for an hour as well.

Abby Kate spent her hour contemplating picking up the weights and staring at us like we were crazy, but then she discovered a flashlight which was much more fun.

Thank you, Lyndsay and Carrie, for inviting me to go to the gym with you several times during my visit. I really enjoyed going back to my old gym and getting to do some of the classes, which I love.

Abby Kate and I are set to head back home later this week. We are SO excited to see Mike. But of course we will be sad to leave Mom and Dad and all of our loved ones here. We really appreciate you letting us come visit for so long. We enjoyed every second, as always, and it made the time away from Mike fly by. I feel so blessed to be able to travel home to my family when Mike's away. Mom and Dad, thank you for loving us so much and always welcoming us with open arms. We love you and we'll miss you. Please come visit us soon!

I know what you mean...it's always bittersweet for me, too! Have a safe trip and I'll see you for some Paige-bashing!!
P.S. Eden got some pink cowgirl boots she can't wait to show you and a dance mat/routine DVD that I told her Miss Casey will have to help her with...I can't keep up with the 8-year-old instructors on it! :)
