Best (imaginary) workout

The boy decided today that he wanted to play baseball. But it's a little to cold and mucky to head to our local park to play for real. So we ended up playing virtual baseball. We don't have a fancy video game system, so we had to resort to using our imagination.

This means there was a lot of arm waving (for the batter) and pretend throwing (for the pitcher), but the best part was we got to decide ourselves where the balls went. Suddenly my athletic dreams had come true and I hit a home run! It was a lot of fun and silliness, and surprisingly a good workout since we were actually running 'bases' even if the rest of the game was make-believe. It really was a perfect energy burner for a dreary January day, and spring training is just around the corner!
