Almost every night since January 1, Brad and I have taken an after dinner walk. We have walked in snow, but we avoid the rainy nights. It's been really lovely.
When the temperatures got a little warmer, we started taking the dogs with us. They were a hot mess. But, we now have harnesses for their craziness and they are actually pleasant to walk again. (There is nothing worse that two easily distracted dogs yanking your arm off every time they see a squirrel.)
Now that it's not quite so dark after dinner, the kids decided to join us. It only works if dinner is ready as soon as dance is over and everyone has their homework finished before dinner. In fact, last night was the first night it actually worked. And it was lovely. This could very easily become my favorite time of the day, walking and chatting and laughing our way through the neighborhood.
