A Walk to the Post Office

Mommy and I often walk to the post office. It’s only a block away, but it takes us about 30 minutes because of frequent stops and explorations. We chronicled our journey today.

001

Here I am finding out that we get to go outside. I love it!

010

I try to put on my own shoes, but I can’t quite figure it out yet.

013

Mommy helps me put them on.

014

Shoes are on!

021

Coat is on. Let’s go!

022

Dragging Mommy down the stairs.

024

Freedom!

025

Our first stop of the day is to check out the sprinkler head. Have to keep those things working!

026

I get a little sidetracked in the yard, but Mommy gets me going in the right direction again.

028

Let’s go this way!

030

Hmmm…gotta check out this hole.

031

I’ll just go ahead and stick my finger in it.

034

Okay, back to walking.

036

Time to cross the street.

037

But first I need to check out these yellow bumps.

041

And I need to pick up a tiny rock.

043

We made it across crosswalk number one. Now it’s time for crosswalk number two.

045

I’ve got a rock in each hand and I’m going to the post office. What more could a girl want?

046

Oops. Dropped the rocks.

047

Just about have them picked up.

048

Got my rocks again. Let’s go!

050

I always like to pause here to look up at my favorite tree.

051

Isn’t it nice?

052

Okay, on our way again. (Notice, though, that Mommy has to hold onto my wrist because I’m holding onto my precious rocks.)

053

Oh my gosh! More rocks! I immediately drop my old rocks to get two new rocks.

056

I had to sit down to give myself time to pick the best rocks.

059

WE MADE IT!

062

I’m so happy that we’re finally here.

061

I expressed my joy by doing a little dance on the drain cover.

064

Here’s my area of the post office.

065

That’s my box.

066

There’s my mail.

067

We’ve got our mail. Let’s go home!

068

Out the door…

069

…down the slope, and…

071

Wait, what is this? Somebody dropped their mail. We can’t go home yet!

072

Mommy, please open the door.

073

I have some mail to return!

077

Okay, glad that’s been taken care of. Now we can go home!

078

We always get to see lots of big trucks on our walks. I love waving at them!

082

Starting our long journey home with a stick in hand.

084

Back to visit the amazing rock collection.

085

Ummmm…I don’t want this stick anymore.

088

I need a good handful of rocks!

093

Checking out the signs along the sidewalk.

097

Here comes a tractor! Another one of my favorite things to see on our walks.

098

Bye, bye tractor.

100

Time to go back across the street. Mommy always makes me hold her hand for this part. I’m not a big fan of that.

102

A quick break between the crosswalks. I was initially distracted by the yellow arrow, but then I found MORE ROCKS!

103

Crosswalk #2. I was sneaky and ran ahead of Mommy.

105

There goes another truck. Bye, bye truck.

106

The final stretch. We’re almost home.

107

Stopping to look at these pretty yellow flowers. I don’t know why Daddy doesn’t want them in our yard. They’re beautiful.

108

There’s just enough time to take a brief moment to roll around on the sidewalk.

109

Last bit of sidewalk, and…

110

We’re home!

All of that happened in just one block! Can you imagine what I will do when I’m older and can walk faster and farther?!
