Day 18: Throw Away the Directions

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.

Our random path led us high into the air on this walkway.
And around & around on this "balance beam" for about a 1/2 hour.

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