Sometimes I Work Out with Professional Athletes

So, tonight is the Super Bowl which means I am stalking people on Instagram and Facebook. It reminds me of when I had a job and sat at a computer all day. There were some days that I literally reached the end of the internet. We put Ben to bed early then Rett, Jake and I ate pizza and spinach dip. I told Jake to not eat very much and he responded with, 'Mom, this dip is brilliant. God made us to like dip.' Can't argue with God logic.
Jake lasted until halftime then fell asleep on the couch. Rett hauled him upstairs because I can't carry that kid upstairs to save my life. He is a 50 pounder these days.

Speaking of Jake being big, he is on a basketball team. All he wants to do is practice but we don't have a goal at our house so he just dribbles around outside (and inside) all day long. The team has gotten much better since week 1 but it is about what you would imagine for a bunch of 4 and 5 year olds. Jake is # 12 'just like the Aggies.'
If we are not doing ninja kicks or super hero training we are playing sports. Rett and Jake did a few horses after tennis practice the other night. I had flashbacks to high school athletics...not just regular bleachers but cross country bleachers, horses, wall sits, box jumps, tire pull...I could go on for hours but I was in amazing shape. Maybe at the gym tomorrow I will find a tall box to jump on. It would be super cool to fall on my face in front of Willy Taveras. Yeah, he works out at my gym when I do. We nodded/smiled at each other one time. He was like, 'can I work in?' I'm totally joking. There were no words spoken. Maybe next week.
We went to the Arboretum last week because the weather was super perfect and we live in Houston and January is the only month when it isn't super hot. Rett and Jake taught Ben how to break the rules and off road it.
