Started Walking!

Since my dad and me are trying to stay healthy we started walking around our neighborhood for about 30 minutes almost every night. I prefer to walk in the day time but, my dad likes to walk after we eat our dinner and it is usually night time by then. At least there is not as many cars driving around as there is in the day time. So we don't have to constantly try to avoid them while we are walking. Also there are alot of trees in our neighborhood and you can hear all the sounds of the possums, armadillos, rabbits, and raccoons scurrying across our neighbor's lawns. So, in a way it's kind of fun to walk at night.

  1. you got quite a bit of wildlife in your neighborhood. I have not seen an armadillo before, but have seen rabbits, possums and racoons where we have lived before.

    Walking is a great exercise!! Glad you and your dad are doing it together for the benefits of it plus getting to spend that time together. We usually try to walk Koda before it gets dark but in the winter months we have to walk him when it is dark, it is always good to carry a flashlight I think!

    enjoy the day!

  2. Ya, it is fun. Armadillos are basically just rats with shells on the top of them. We have street lamps in our neighborhood so we can see well. : )
