Dunkin' Donuts

Yes, I love Dunkin' Donuts. And so do C6 & Q5, of course. What is not to love? Sweet, sweet, fatty delicious donuts!

Today after my run I offered to walk with them to D&D if they had a protein-filled breakfast. We did this a few times last summer, fairly successfully for C5, but Q4 just couldn't walk the whole way without collapsing into a crying heap. Both girls agreed, C6 had a veggie hotdog for breakfast, and Q5 an egg. And out the door we went.

We started off at 8:13 am, very happily walking hand in hand. This was not a powerwalk, to be sure, but more of a friendly family stroll.

Walking to D&Ds

I'm not sure how long it took us to get there, but C6, upon finishing her doughnut, told me it was worth it.

And the walk home, where any tiredness and trouble is likely to emerge, was easy. C6 walked the last quarter mile home herself, and let herself in the house.

Q5 complained about feeling sick, but never stopped walking and never started to whine.

The whole trip took over an hour and a half to walk a mile there, eat in the store, and walk a mile home. But it was worth it.
