Heathly Choice Challenge Week 4

How did you do making a healthy meal for your family? Did you enjoy finding something and making it fit your families tastes? I love cooking so this challenge is something that I really enjoy doing and I've been striving to do. Jarr isn't the biggest fan of vegetables so that is my biggest struggle. The meal I made for my family was my Chicken Zucchini Pasta. I thought I would give you a break last week because I was gone and its summer, we all need a break sometimes right? So this week get ready for something hard core, no I'm just kiding, I'm not hard core at all.

If you are just joining us make sure to check out the Healthy Choice Challenge Week 1, HCC Week 2, and HCC Week 3 so you are all caught up on what we are doing. Feel free to start at the beginning and then just read the challenge that goes next, you'll be a few weeks behind but then you won't miss anything important.

I'm going to share a secret with you, I love summer. It is my favorite season of the year and I am so happy that today is the first day of summer. One of my favorite summer activities is swimming, I love to scuba and snorkel, and I didn't quite get my full last week but it should hold me over for a while. In Oklahoma we don't have the ocean but we do have lakes, so if you are a land locked state like us then I know you don't have an excuse for this challenge. We can't all live in beautiful Florida, but we can all have some fun in the sun regardless of where we live.

There are so many water activities you can do if you don't have a pool or the ocean nearbye. A water balloon fight is always a good time, or if you want something that will last all summer you can check out Aimee at Its Overflowing and find out how to make her Sponge Water Ball.

Doesn't this look super fun? I'm tempted to make some and have a water fight with Jarr. Another thing you could do is go to a water park, those are always fun. We always played in the creek as kids and had a blast. Water guns are a great way to get wet and have fun at home. My all time favorite as a kid was putting the sprinkler under the trampoline and jumping on it or even just running through the sprinkler was a fun thing to do. We also liked to make our own slip in slides with a tarp in the backyard. We just used an old tarp, a water hose, and some soap, this was lots of fun on hot days.

There are loads of things you can do outside with water so my challenge this week is that you do something outside with water, whether is is swimming or one of the activities I've listed. Feel free to come up with your own thing and let me know what you do!
