For quite some time, we have been trying to find a place that we both enjoy working out at. We finally found the place and it is Title Boxing. That's right, we have joined a boxing club. They have something that is called Power Hour and it is basically an hour of continuous cardio. You do a 15 minute warm-up with the trainer and then 35 minutes of hitting the bags with different punches that the trainer yells out. After the exhausting 50 minutes, you have a 10 minute cool down. It is a great work out and we both really enjoy it. Julie had a free week there and when it ran out we both decided that we wanted to join because it was something we could see ourselves doing. Upon joining this Saturday, we could both either get the gloves or we could get a free starter kit. Julie's brother-in-law, Phillip, used to be a member of Title Boxing so Lance got his gloves which meant that we got the free starter kit for Julie. Julie went the girly route and got the pink bag, pink boxing gloves, and bright green wraps. We'll keep everyone updated on our progress.
We have not had a lot of chances lately to spend time with Julie's mom, Nancy, so we decided to spend the day with her Saturday. We were both interested in seeing the movie Captain Phillips and we were lucky because Nancy wanted to see it also. We all thought it was a fantastic movie and really tense throughout. When the movie was over we decided to grab a bite to eat at B.D.'s Mongolian Barbecue. If you have never been there before it is really good. You actually get to pick what you want to eat and put it in a bowl. The cooks then stir fry everything you have in your bowl and you eat it up. The meal, like the movie, was delicious. All in all it was a really nice day.

Last weekend Powell Gardens (one of our favorite places) held their annual Harvest Celebration and Antique Tractor Celebration. We had never been to this before, but have always been curious to see what it was about. We made sure to get there a little early, so we could eat in one of our favorite places, Cafe Thyme, and as always we were not disappointed with the food. The Harvest Celebration was really fun and it reminded us both of a county fair. They had homemade ice cream, tractor pull races, pumpkin gourd competition, and tractors as far as the eye could see. We really enjoyed it and will definitely go back next year.
