Our 9-MIle Journey to Fitness Part 1 - Pennsylvania AVenue

Last weekend,  June the 13th, we took  our children for a 9-mile journey of walking.  We did some short distance walks before embarking onto this long but fun journey with the whole family.  The kids were so excited that they even went to bed  very early (that is hard to do  during summer time, lol).  We woke up early,  ate a good breakfast and we got out the door around 9 am because we  were worried that  it might rain.   We should have went earlier because it did not rain anyway.  
I brought the camera with me  because  I wanted to  document  this  moment with our children.  My husband  told me that I shouldn't bring anything since it is a long walk but knowing me, I can't let this happen without photos.
We took the long route because it was safer with the kids.  Instead of going  to Cove Hill which is a shorter route but  dangerous for the kids, we went  along Pennsylvania Avenue.
The beauty about going for a walk like this is you get to enjoy the wildlife beauty.  If you look closely on the photo below, you can see the deer eating by the fence beside the  water tower.
We always see deer when we are driving but it is different when you see it when you are traveling by foot.
We stopped for family shots before going down Greenbrier Road.  We were looking at the  next 4 miles of our walk and the kids are  certainly  prepared for it.
This is just the  1.5 mile of our walk.  I will continue to post the continuation of our  journey on another post because  I will run out here of space if I put it all in one  post lol.  This is the first time that we  did this long walk.  Tune in to see how  they do on the rest of our journey.

  20. This is a great idea, my 10 year old would love this. We would have to put the 3 year old in the stroller but I think we would all enjoy the walk for sure.
