Very Active Day!!

Last weekend we sold our stroller to get a jogging stroller, we live where there is only dirt roads so I need the jogging stroller! {which I dont have yet *sad*} Yesterday I wanted to go for a nice long walk. But then I remembered that I had no stroller, and Sweet Baby takes forever to walk with. So out came the Ergo Baby Carrier!!! I love this carrier, you can use it until your child is 6. There is NO weight place on your back (which is why I bought it - back pain is still so so).

Well we went on our walk! Sweet Baby loved it, I told her we were going on a long Piggie Back ride. She was singing "Walk, walk, we are walking" "Walk, 2, 3, 4". We made it to 2.7km. Then we, or should I say Sweet Baby had a mini fit, so let's say, Sweet Baby came out of the carrier and decided to take her time walking. We still have 1.5kms till we would be home. At Sweet Baby's pace that would take, oh.... 4 hours! My friend drove by about 10 minutes later, and asked if we wanted a ride! I WAS SAVED!! Sweet Baby went for a nap, I made cookies, did some gardening, made a super awesome Citrus Chicken, {which I will post below - I got this recipe from Exercise and Beyond}.

Then we all went for another 1km walk together as a family, even the dogs came along!! All in all I walked 3.7km yesterday. We had a very active and full filling day! What's in store for today, we'll have to see!!
