We know this path well.
It winds around our neighborhood and many days were spent pushing a stroller along this stretch trying to lull a baby boy to sleep.
As he grew we began to make our way through the neighborhood with a push toy or wagon.
I don't know when or why we stopped, but we did.
We recently found our way back to these walks. This time he is walking beside me while his baby sister sits in the stroller. He wants to walk barefoot, so we spend a lot of time dodging tiny pebbles that pierce feet.
It feels good to be outside in the early morning hours before the air becomes so hot you can barely breathe.
This simple and familiar route has become a refreshing way to begin the long summer day.
