We play with the dog or jump on the trampoline. It was last weekend. Its getting cold here. My daughter likes to hoop with me in the house. I'll probably go for a run or do some yoga.

What are your favorite outdoor activities to do with your kids or as a family?Well, since school is in session, we don't have much time to go outside with homework and extracurricular activities.. This weekend will be difficult as we have out of town visitors ( Grandparents). We'll be spending all of our time with them since we don't get to see them much during the school year.

When was the last time you went outside and 'played'? I went outside with the kids last weekend and they told me to come inside as they don't like to play with me. LOL 

What are you going to do to be active today? Not sure... since we have out of town visitors we will unfortunately spend most of our time playing games with them.

 Our park is about a mile away from the house, so I like walking to the park and playing with my girls.  We went for a walk outside on Thursday night.

Last Sunday I played softball for my sister-inaw's team. I was catcher. I felt it for days. Lol

Today it's too cold to go out!

We like to ride our bicycles around the park as a family! Then our oldest goes crazy on the playground. Lol

I love taking my kids to the park, and we have 4 within a mile radius of us so we switch it up! We also love going to the zoo on occasion! :) Playing in the backyard is fun when it's nice out. Today we might not get much outside time as it is cold and rainy here.

What are your favorite outdoor activities to do with your kids or as a family?  Nature walks.  We love all the trails in our area.

When was the last time you went outside and 'played'?  Monday.  The Rocket Slide at the park is scary.

What are you going to do to be active today?  My kids will be running around Chuck E Cheese for my oldest's birthday, but later I'll walk.

We like to go to the parks and play. We also like to go for walks around the neighborhood and the girls love riding their bikes. Depending on the weather today we might go out and play hopscotch and draw pictures with sidewalk chalk :)
