Ice Cream Walk

Toddlers are a pain to go for walks with, unless they’re in a stroller or wagon or something.  They walk so very slow, and often they walk in the wrong direction.  They stop to look at everything, picking up rocks, trash, anything they see.  A walk down two blocks can take all day.

But a few days ago, Lori (who’s back up here for a visit right now) discovered the trick to making a toddler walk a little faster.  We were in a lovely area of Portland, the Alberta Arts District.  We were walking back to our car from lunch, several blocks.  Luckily someone had the idea to stop for ice cream (gee, I wonder who and who else that might have been), and then this happened:

We got to the car in record time.
