A dusty VHS tape has recently found its way into the light in our home, and Billy Blanks' Tae Bo exercise routine has become the latest craze! Owen and Isabel are the die-hard fans, but even Alec tries to get in on the fun. Mommy also gives it a go since it was her idea to (a) work on healthier family living and (b) wear out the kids before bed. :)
Owen likes the video because according to him, Billy Blanks is "bald like me" and "black like me!" He does think some of the women on the video are kind of scary, especially this one buff blond lady.
Isabel follows the moves on the television with intense concentration. She doesn't say much but she gives it her all!
It is rather challenging to have five or six bodies of varying sizes and shapes attempting to exercise in an approximately 7 ft x 11 ft room. Especially when Alec's head is at just the right level to connect with Owen's fist! (That was just an accident, right??)
Needless to say we all look very amusing and tonight I asked Eva to snap some pictures to document our goofyness. She thinks we're all nuts anyway, so she was quite willing to acquiesce!
Yes, I did know the camera was on me at this moment. What's life if you can't laugh at yourself once in awhile?? I'm just thankful for these sweet and silly moments shared with my children. Now if I could get in shape while having such fun, that would be really something! :)
