Sling'n Lead

Not really fitness related, however I do relate this activity to stress relief and it still works towards the goal of getting out of the house and enjoying the outdoors.  So, today I headed out for a range trip to get some time under my belt with my guns.  No point in owning firearms if you aren't comfortable using them!

So, I called Lance to see if he wanted to head out with me, and he agreed so we headed towards the Chesnee American Legion firing range.  To our disappointment they were working on the legion and the firing range so we had to go towards plan B.

The Upper Chinquapin Greenway


Today Jenna and I finally got out of the house to do some trail blazing.  We hit the Upper Chinquapin Greenway, which is part of the Spartanburg Area Conservancy. The Conservancy consists of 36 acres located on the headwaters of the Chinquapin Creek. The Chinquapin Creek is a tributary stream and was the source of the city of Spartanburg’s first municipal water system in the late 1890’s.  This trail is home of the dwarf heartleaf and a number of other plant species to appreciate during the walk.

Swimming 101

Well, Jenna seems to be the most active lately out of our family!  I have been so busy with school, and Robin with work that we haven't be able to hit any trails lately.  We have made a good effort to keep Jenna busy and learning new things and engaging her interest in various activities.  We have hopes to someday this summer to give our hand at kayaking, and before we head down that path to adventure, we need to get Jenna swimming!

Kick'n it

Since this adventure to a healthier and more enjoyable life includes our entire family, we have enrolled Jenna in some extra curricular activities to get her more active.  If we can get her into a mindset of being active, then hopefully she will be an active adolescent and then an active adult.  So, the first of her many upcoming activities was soccer!
