Hope He Has A Concealed Carry Permit...

No fear walking home from McDonalds in the dark I had my own body guard.

He's only 6 and it's not a real gun - but maybe in the dark "the bad guy" wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

We decided to walk to a new McDonalds late this afternoon. Took us an hour to walk there... After we ate, dad ran on ahead and met us part way home with the car :)

Actually we were only about a 15 min walk from home when he met up with us - so we could have walked the rest of the way...but it was nice for the kids as they were tired.

Speaking of fast food - I'm starting to think that it ain't worth ordering a soda at ff places b/c they are so watered down and taste nasty! I've been noticing in the past few months at all different eateries - the soda has been watery.

I guess if you are going to walk to eat fast food, you might as well walk for an hour to burn off all those calories. :)

Yeah that's kind of how I look at it...don't have to feel (as) guilty about all the extra calories :)

Walking to all forms of entertainment and eating out would definitely limit the spending...and limit the food consumption.

I'm not opposed to walking and I do it a lot - my problem with it is the amount of time it takes. For instance walking to the library with the kids, and back might take an extra 40 min as opposed to driving. Though if you already exercise for about 30 min in a day - you could consider that your exercise. Walking with a 6 & 9 yr old though doesn't exactly equal a cardiac workout though.

I'm still pushing a stroller when I walk anywhere these days.

We walk to the grocery store and drug store about 2 times a week, but it is only 1/2 a mile each way. I have no idea if there are sidewalks all the way to the library... I might have to look into that.

I just mapped it and my library is a 6 mile walk. That would take at least an hour and a half at my pace these days... I don't think that will be happening any time soon. :)

I get tired just thinking about the walks you all take! Good for you!
