31 Days of Adventure Day 18
Throw Away the Directions
"Take a drive (or a bike ride) without a map. If you're with someone, take turns choosing which direction to go when you reach an intersection." - daily email prompt
Our family went to Peoria yesterday. Jarrod & an intern had a meeting with their Park District. Cadence & I took in the Peoria Zoo. You always get maps at zoos. I decided to use this opportunity for yesterday's adventure. I looked where the giraffes were - the one animal Cadence wanted to see - and put the map away.
Then I let her lead.
You see letting a three-year-old lead is pretty much like throwing away all maps because they go in the most random path known to man. And we had the most random fun time! Maybe I should let her lead more often.

|And finally, to this whale slide for probably just as long.|
