So, does anyone remember how a few days ago I was writing a post about how we were working on turning our garage into a gym? We had just used what we could scrounge up from our tax return to purchase a punching bag as a sort of family exerciser /stress reliever / physical conditioner. With this new piece of equipment (and the car henceforth being kicked out of the garage) I was getting all sorts of ideas of ways to use this area for a physical excellence room.
Well this morning we got an unexpected phone call from Frito Lay informing us that we had won the grand prize at the commissary (military grocery store) – the Sportcraft Step Back 3 Basketball Arcade.
Now, granted, I did put our name in the drawing but it’s one of those things where you don’t ever expect to actually win.
Nonetheless we were so excited! We picked it up this evening and spent a while putting the whole thing together and lots of laughs and fun playing it afterwords. It is a really nice and very sturdy set, one of those things were we would have probably never just went out and bought it on our own, but I’m so glad that we got it because it’s been a lot of fun.
We were so blessed to be able to get this. It was actually a great workout because we were jumping and dashing around, all three of us playing together in a race against the clock, and it’s the kind with a three point line (sensors on the floor mat) so that definitely added to the moving back-and-forth aspect. And Hunter? He was actually able to play it quite well. This was great because even though we have a basketball hoop right by our backyard, it’s a little bit too tall for him so he has a hard time making it in.
We are so thankful for this wonderful blessing and new addition to our fun room!
