Evening Stroll

The other night, Daughter D. announced that she would like the family to take an "evening stroll" after dinner.

"A what?" I asked. ('Evening Stroll' not being in my daily vocabulary.)

"An evening stroll," she replied. "That's when the whole family goes out after dinner and takes a walk around the neighborhood."

And so we did. And we did it the next night, and again the night after that.

3 nights later, and it's my favorite part of the day. She's got some good ideas, that daughter D.

The highlight of tonight's stroll was son D. pretending to be a GPS device. Using the same exact voice on his Dad's Garmin Nuvi, he instructed us at each corner to "turn left in 200 feet onto xyz road." When we got back home he announced, "Arriving at destination."

I'd like to think that there is a slight chance our children won't grow up to be techie geeks. But looking at who their parents are, that is unlikely.
