do you hula?


after work this morning, the girls and i headed down toward my lss (lasting memories) for a design team interview. we got there a little early and decided to kill some time at toys-r-us. so we walked around and looked at all of the toys, and walked away with two new hula hoops. torrey is the hula hoop master. she can whip that hula hoop around, and it hardly looks like it's moving. she's gone more than 25 minutes straight hoopin' it up!

emma took a little longer getting the hang of it, but man did she have fun. there was a lot of laughing going on...

especially when i got going. (forgive the sweat pants, i was in process of getting comfy. lol) surprisingly it did come back to me after a bit, i think mostly from watching torrey, though! on one "contest" i even kept it up longer than the torrey-master! lol.

when stan got home we went on another bike ride. we only went 8 miles, but did it in the rain. so there were 4 soaked culbertsons at the end of the trail. we were feeling pretty tough when we got back to the car. hee hee. we need to pack our little camera for the bike rides, i think...

I was just looking at the "designer" hula hoops at our Bellingham Saturday market. They were actually regular hula hoops wrapped with colored tape (electrical, etc. I think) So colorful & fun. And oh so easy to make for the DIYers. Fun Shots!

Isn't it great when the money you pay for something is so well worth it? Awesome.

Your family is burning some serious calories this summer!
