Harris Bobbitt = The Best Father a Girl Could EVER Have!

He has the love of a lot of women! His oldest daughter, his oldest granddaughter, his youngest daughter (me), his middle daughter and his sister.

With Father’s Day this weekend, I wanted to take a few moments to say that I am very proud to be able to call Harris Bobbitt my father. My Dad is very hard-working, willing to lend a hand and happiest when he is outdoors. My Mom and Dad had three daughters. Some men might have wished for a boy and treated his daughters differently but not our Dad. He took his daughters every where and taught us everything he knew. Or tried to anyway.      Our Dad always made time for us and enjoyed our company. Growing up on… » Continue Reading

Fit Family Feature #43 (Christina)

Fit Family Feature #43 (Christina)

This weekly post series for Country Fit Family is called Fit Family Feature. In this series I will be interviewing fellow fit parents about what they do for exercise and how they make time for fitness in their busy lives.  I know as parents we are always pressed for time and are often exhausted at the end of the day. Working out is usually the last thing on our to-do lists. I am hoping the Fit Family Features will showcase how other parents are managing and perhaps inspire others to get active.            In this week’s Fit Family Feature,… » Continue Reading

Little Biker Crew {Wordless Wednesday}

  Introducing the Fantastic Four Biker Crew with Gunner the Golden as mascot.  My friend Sarah and I are both stay-at-home-moms and we get together a couple times a week to take our four kids on adventures. This was their first time riding their bikes on the bike trail. Last year we pulled them in the bike trailer all summer.  We each pushed our youngest on their bikes while the big guys raced ahead. Gunner the Golden got a nice walk out of it as well.    Do your kids like biking? Where is their favourite place to ride bikes?… » Continue Reading
