    I probably should have mentioned that I do them from my knees, LOL. My abs need to get stronger, my back is probably doing the most work.

    Thanks ljosaitis!

    Flag Day weekend we went for a walk at Castle Island in South Boston. Little did we know, Fort Independence was open for tours - which is a rarity. I had to share this photo from our tour with all my fellow patriots that enjoy this site. I think this photo is a good representation of our countries founding principles - Family & Freedom & Strength! USA!
