When was the last time you did something fun?

Something silly, out of character or just plain goofy?

It's great to be reminded to let loose a little and have fun. The kids love it when you do! We had a water fight with the hose on the weekend and it was really fun.

On a more serious note :) Two studies last month found that laughing is good for the heart and for lowering high blood pressure. Check out:
