Snow Days and Basketball

I downloaded Google Chrome and now I can blog!  Boom goes the dynamite!  Okay, my boys are playing Wipeout on Kinect and I've heard that like 10 times in the past 11 minutes.  Back to the blog..

I am doing my best at making it to the Y at least 4 days a week right now.  I try to go on Friday mornings but planned on skipping this past Friday since I didn't know what the roads would be like.  Getting up at 5:15 doesn't give ya much time to watch the news before leaving.  Turns out I would have been okay getting there but coming home would have been slick.  I gotta say I was surprised when they cancelled school all together that morning.  I understand though, one bus run off and a parent would have gotten lawsuit happy.  We made the best of it by meeting Luke and his family for lunch at Chick-Fil-A and I had coupons for Krispy Kreme so we went there as well.  I did not eat a single donut!

 I had to get a few things at Target so I treated us all to hot chocolates from Starbucks.  They are yummy!  I know our summer is slowing shrinking away but I miss days like this.  On the way home Cameron told me what a fun day we had.

I hope all these snow days doesn't change the plans for a balanced calendar in the future.  I know it's set in place next year but I really want it at least one more year.  I have a Disney trip to go on and I'm not doing it in the summer.
Oh, and I did make it to the Y that evening for a 20 minute run and body pump.  I have always preferred cardio before strength, how about you?   Cardio then strength?  Or Strength then cardio? 

Cooper had his first YMCA basketball game on Saturday.  Cameron came dressed to cheer him and IU. 

Cooper in on the blue team and we decided if we have to wear blue then it needs to be #5 like Victor Oladipo, since he had to wear blue now too.

I had never been to a youth game at the Y but it was crowded, loud, and hot.  Cameron sat on my lap and even did a little cuddling, I don't think he liked how loud it was.  I seriously cannot get over his cuteness in that hat.

It just so happened that Steve scheduled his PRN weekend this weekend and had to miss the game.  His dad and brother also left early for the IU game, so it was just me and my mother in law in attendance.  Although I'm pretty sure they would have rather watched Cooper than IU's poor performance.

Warming up with some practice shooting with his best friend Luke who is also on the team.

Cooper has good form when he shoots, it looks weird cause he's left handed, but good form. Poor kid just can't get it up there though. His upper body is weak like mine.  He'll get there though, I would rather him miss every shot with good form, than make shot with bad form.

He had a great time playing.  He's not a bad dribbler, probably his strength.  I can't wait to see how he progresses. It's his first year ever playing and I'm sure some kids have been playing for 2 years now.  I didn't even realize I could have signed Cameron up too.  That would have been a trip.

After the game we ran up to Charlestown to sign Cooper up for tee-ball.  He loves playing baseball so I can't wait for that to start, hard to believe it's almost time again.  Cameron has one more year left so he will be on the side line again.  
Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend, we are booked tomorrow with doctors and dentist appointments.  Yippee!

Love watching kiddos play sports!! I love cardio before my strength too. But I think the trainer thinks I should do the other way around!! Oh well, what ever works!
