Today in Healthy Lifestyles, we cooked healthy s'mores right here at the Max Higbee Center! What made our s'mores healthy you ask? "Bananas and dark chocolate," said Mr. Wonder. That's right, instead of marshmallows we used bananas and instead of milk chocolate we used dark chocolate. "I cut the bananas," said Shrek. So did several other members. "It was different but good," said Ms. Powerful. I think most people agreed. We learned about safely using a grill, but due to the wind we cooked our s'mores on a camping stove instead. "I liked them," Jalapeño Dragon. Glad to hear it!
Today we went in a nice healthy walk in the sunshine! Everyone had a picnic lunch, and some of us made it all the way to Zuanich Park to meet with a group of new friends who were visiting from Canada! Unfortunately they were held up at the border for a long time so we didn't get to visit for too long before having to walk back, but while there we got a chance to meet new people and fly some kites they brought with them! "I made new friends today!" said Midnight Jalapeño, who, among others, had a great time flying kites and practicing international diplomacy.
The rain changed our plans, but we made the best of it! Instead of tennis at the park, we did basketball at the YMCA! We worked on our passing form by practicing our bounce pass, chest pass, and overhead pass. We also worked on shooting with good form, and how to dribble with good form!

Today we our monthly fitness testing. This included sit ups, push ups, jumping, dancing, get up and go, and sit and stands.
What a fantastic day!
Sweating happened.... because we worked so hard!
We walked to glass beach. While we were there we saw shells, ducks, and geese!
We have decided to focus on our arms this month. Some of us wore arm weights!
After the beach, we walked around downtown and stopped for a refreshment at Starbucks, before heading back to Max Higbee Center to rest before our next adventure.
