July Fourth Fun!!!
Maura and my friend Vicki is often behind the camera. She is a great friend, and we finally got a picture of her. Vicki has a great sense of humor and swings a mean kettlebell. She made this weekend unforgettable!
There was some fun and relaxation for us this weekend! Aaron, Shawn, Maura, Vicki and I all headed up to Alexandria in honor of Independence Day. Aaron and Shawn's parents generously hosted all of us at their home. I could not have asked for nicer in-laws.
We started with some fun water riding on Big Mable, a huge water toy pulled by Ralph Friday on the pontoon boat. That evening we watched fireworks from the pontoon boat as well.

On Saturday Mike Nelson and Jodi showed up. Maura insisted on a push-up workout. Ten sets of ten was on the menu... then some goofing around with kettlebells. Maura and I followed this up with a new form of ab work... check out the video for your viewing pleasure.
We also got a few special visitors... Amanda and Steve Reishus, and Rob stopped by! Steve Reishus is another kettlebell/powerlifting enthusiast from blogosphere, meeting him and his wife Amanda was a real treat. They are a very sweet couple. Rob is a very nice guy as well... he need a blog though.
It was so nice to spend the holiday weekend with friends... it is important to mix some fun in with training. This weekend was near perfection.
