When my kids learned that I walked going to Marland Heights, their first question was "Did you bring something to protect you from bad guys?" I told them that I picked up a palm size rock just in case I have to defend myself lol. They they asked me if they can join me next time. I told them that we have to practice first before they can go on a long walk like that so they agreed. We have been going around our neighborhood walking almost everyday after they got off from school.
On June 4, after I jogged, they asked if we can go to Pap's walking. I told them that I don't want to take them there without Dad because it would be hard for me to look for two on the road. They agreed to wait but they suggested for us to walk to Starvaggi Park. We have walked there for a couple of times already and they did fine so I thought, it won't be bad since it is only a total of 2.4 miles from here to there and back.
I was going to bring bottles of water but decided to just bring some cash to surprise the kids. We don't really buy soft drinks or soda here at home but once in a while we give them that as a treat. Since we were going for a walk, I thought it would be nice to drop by from the convenient store and buy them a drink. They were thrilled about that when we went inside the store.
They spent 30 minutes playing in the park and then we head back home since it was getting so hot. I wish that we could have went earlier when the heat of the sun wasn't so intense yet.
We stopped once on the way back because my son was over heating. I thought it was a cute picture when he sat by the garage sale sign lol.
When we arrived home, they chilled out by eating some of these fruit chillers.
