I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Things to Do While on a Walk

 We like to take long walks. It is our favorite way to get exercise. However, walking can also be boring. So here are some fun ways we recommend to pass time while walking.

1) Play games - You can play real games like wWord Association or make up a game. We often make up games that have to do with Broadway shows which is one of our favorite subjects.

2) Have a light snack or drink water - You don't want to eat too much while you walk because that would defeat the purpose of the exercise, and also, it is harder to walk with a full stomach. However, if you are going to be out a really long time you might want to take something to eat, and no matter how long you are walking for you will definitely want to take water.

3) Talk - When you are walking together that is a really good time to have fun discussions or even serious ones if you are in an area where there aren't a lot of other people around.

4) Observe  - Sometimes, it is fun just to pay attention and see what's around you.

5) Make up Stories - You can make up stories in your own head as you walk or you can make up a story together by taking turns adding words or details.

6) Listen to music - If you are alone or in a more populated area, you can listen to music on your phone or mp3 with earbuds. If you are in a more isolated area, you can listen to music out loud with your walking companions.

7) Sing Songs - If you are in an area where you are not likely to bother people, you can sing songs while you walk.

What do you like to do while you walk?

Tune in tomorrow for Tips for Tuesday.
