I took so many photos that I am going to have to break them up. So the first installment is from our 2 night stay at the Great Wolf Lodge, an indoor waterpark in the Wisconsin Dells.
We had lots of fun with lots of cousins.

Online Video Classes
yogadownload.com- They have tons of audio and video classes for free. The free classes are only 20 minutes long, but you can mix and match them for a longer workout. You can also purchase longer workouts or buy a subscription, which is much cheaper than going to class. I just use the free classes though. I usually watch them on my computer.
Yoga Journal's 21 Day Yoga Challenge- I have done several of these classes and really enjoyed them.
Shiva Rea Daily Energy- This DVD is awesome. It is what really got me addicted to yoga. It is calming, but also challenging. It is also perfect for beginners.
Yoga Meltdown- This is Jillian Michael's ramped up version of yoga. It is a really good workout, but lacks the zen of a more traditional yoga class.
I know this is going to vary depending on your cable company, but there are tons of workouts (not just yoga) available On Demand. Under Exercise TV there are several different categories to choose from. I have really enjoyed the classes by Yogaworks. You can also find a bunch of Jillian Michaels videos. This is my favorite option when I am burnt out on my regular workout routine. It is always nice to change it up.
I just recently fell in love with Sarah Baumert's audio podcasts. If you have done yoga before and don't need to see the visuals, her podcasts are amazing. She is really easy to follow and her voice is so calm and soothing.

We have a squash plant, pumpkins, and watermelon. They are obviously planted way too close together. It is a bit out of control.
Mitch picked a couple of cherry tomatoes, but they were eaten before I could take a photo.
We have lots of green tomatoes.
We have one teeny, tiny watermelon growing.
We have lots of pumpkins. Harper brought a plant home from school, but we think that maybe the kids planted some pumpkin seeds in the garden back at Halloween. We have at least 3 more pumpkin plants that sprouted up out of nowhere. Mitch also dug a potato volunteer out of the compost bin and planted it.
We have herbs, lots of basil and dill.
My little garden sure does make me happy.
