Dear FAMILY Friend,

It's so strange to say, but school is just around the corner...

With the craziness of back-to-school, it's easy to fall out of our healthy routines and fall privy to the convenient and unhealthy meal choices like frozen pizza. The change in schedule and pace also affects our exercise habits- or lack thereof. Read this article to see how you can go back-to-school the healthy way!

Title: Our Brady Bunch Trip to Hawaii     
When your vacation starts with dragging 3 kids out of bed at 4:30 a.m. to make a mad dash to the airport, one of them is car-sick, and you use up your whole trip's worth of handiwipes cleaning vomit off your luggage even before you check-in, you know you're in for a special kind of trip. And our trip to The Big Island of Hawaii didn't disappoint... to read the rest, click here!
