You all know that it’s our family’s favorite time of year… Baseball season!!  With Dave and Avery both playing, and Dave and I coaching, our lives revolve around practice and game schedules.   It’s busy, it’s exhausting, it’s non-stop, but it’s fun and we love it!Have fun ncoaching youth sports

The thing is, Dave is old. (I can say that, because I am still young. I’m a whole month younger than him!) and his body doesn’t always want to keep up with what his mind THINKS it can do. I mean, honestly, he is very fit, and healthy, but we all know how our bodies just don’t bounce back as quickly as they used to once we get past a certain age (For us it was 30. At 30, it all started to go downhill.)12985532_10153588522101452_4807828029980697048_n

So, sometimes, he needs a little help with the aches and pains that come with the baseball player/coach territory. Hit in the arm with a bat, wielded by an exuberant 5 year old? Sore back from hitting grounders for fielding practice? Achy shoulder after pitching 7 innings?  Headache after a night of trying to get 4 and 5 year olds to “LISTEN!”  Dave uses TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain!  It lets him take control of  muscle pain and take back his day!TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain at Target

Dave keeps a bottle of TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain at his shop, and one at home in the medicine cabinet. And, right now, Target  has an awesome  deal that helps keep us fully stocked.  When you buy 2 of the following products, you get a $5 gift card:

  • Extra Strength TYLENOL® – 100 ct or 225 ct
  • TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain – 100 ct
  • Extra Strength TYLENOL® Rapid Release Gels – 100 ct or 225 ct

You can find all the details HERE

You can use that gift card to buy another bottle of Extra Strength TYLENOL® the next time you’re out, or  if you’re anything like me, you’d go straight over to the cafe and grab yourself a delicious caffeinated beverage. You earned it!Tylenol 8HR

Since we are such a baseball crazed family, I thought we should advertise that on the front of our house. We already have the perfectly manicured lawn that looks like baseball field (haha, no we don’t.) But I wanted to make a fun Baseball wreath to hang on our door. (Because I really should take down our St. Patrick’s Day wreath…)TYLENOL® 8 HR

This project is really easy, but you will need some power tools. Well, one power tool. You’ll need a drill.

Drill holes in baseballsCarefully drill a hole through the center of your baseballs.
