Springtime is here, and it’s been beautiful so far!!! We’ve been lucky throughout winter and spring so we’ve been able to get out quite a bit more than we usually have been able to.
With the warmer, sunny weather, one of our favorite family activities is taking a walk through our local Metropark. We take out the dog, and pick one of the trails to walk and away we go. This year I think though it’s time for mommy and daddy to get a bike and take bike rides with my girls since they seem to be really into that right now. I do love the nature walks though through the park, all the different birds, and a few deer that we see, or just talking a walk along the beach it’s just so peaceful and relaxing while we’re still being active.
What are some of your favorite outdoor activities to do with your family? Do you have one?
If you don’t or even if you do and are looking for new and fun activities to try out, you can check out the new program by Together Counts. Together Counts is a nationwide program that’s there to inspire families to be active and live healthy. They’re trying to promote what they call Energy Balance which is balancing calories we consume vs. calories we burn.
Together Counts brings together more than 195 retailers as well as food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods, insurance companies, trade associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), as well as professional sports organizations.
We know there’s a huge focus on childhood obesity and promoting being active and eating healthy right now, Together Counts is just another avenue to help us and our families do it together!
