My Favorite Way to Get Vitamin D!!!

After reading about the supreme importance of Vitamin D3 in building and maintaining a healthy immune system, I made sure to push the Vitamin D3 this winter, and it may have paid off -- we stayed pretty healthy this winter.  Matthew did get the flu a couple weeks ago . . . .but everyone else dove into the supplements full force, taking Vitamin C, D3, Garlic, Echinacea, and Elderberry around the clock . . . and no one else got sick, thankfully!  So, I think I will continue to see that we get plenty of Vitamin D3.

The children have enjoyed taking Vitamin D3 gummies, while I've been taking Cod Liver Oil capsules.  Yesterday, it was such a beautiful day and I was tired of being stuck in the stuffy house, so we took this approach to getting our Vitamin D.  I decided this is my favorite way to get Vitamin D!  ;)

As you can see, we practically had the beach to ourselves and it was So Peaceful!!!!   I think I'm going to enjoy living so close to the beach!  ;)

I miss the days when we lived close to the beach! Although, we didn't take advantage of it as much as we should have....it seemed like too much of a hassle to find a place to park, and then deal with the sandy mess that accompany toddlers enjoying an afternoon at the beach! (My "ideal" home would be ocean front...just walk off my deck and enjoy a refreshing walk along the surf!)

Such a contrast to my day filled with sleet, freezing rain, and 5 inches of snow! :)
I am glad you were able to enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery! Maybe one day we will get to join you!

Every summer I say I am going to the ocean more often. We are just 30 minutes away and I never go as often as I want. Once again I am going to make an effort to go once a week. There is nothing like a walk on the beach!! Once you get your stuff organized on that first beach outing then it isn't as bad after that! Just keep it in the car and you can go on a whim!! I will go to the beach I will go to the beach I will go to the beach!! OK that does it I'm going more!!:)

I guess we're so used to experiencing sunshine all year round that we never think about whether we're getting enough Vitamin D or not. We just assume we are. (And hopefully that's right because I don't like the sound of cod live oil! lol).

We're only five minutes from the beach and we don't visit it as often as we could. However 'your' beach is far prettier than 'ours'.
