A Day of Walking

We had another great day of weather here in Kansas City - it was a little colder and the wind picked up quite a bit from yesterday, but it was still a fantastic day to be outside. Mira and I were feeling adventurous today, so we decided to walk all the way to Target, which was 2 1/2 miles from our house, which of course, made it a 5-mile round trip journey. Fortunately, there aren't too many hills and there are sidewalks the entire way. Mira was all smiles on the way there - the wind was gusting at times, which got her laughing and very excited. I think the noise from all of the traffic on some of the busier streets captured her attention too, as she was doing a lot of scanning. On the trip back, Mira finally became worn out and was quiet. She wasn't upset or tired, just going with the flow and chilled out. She did however, do a considerable amount of eye-rubbing on the return home. It could have been because she was tired or it could have been the sun - it's difficult to tell. We came back from our long walk and put the headphones on her, to see if she would enjoy listening to some music. We did manage to go out again to the park next door, which Mira caught a second wind and did a fair amount of kicking and moving around. She didn't have any big tonic-clonics today, but she had countless jerks and twitches. She probably had 40 or 50 spasms and jerks just on our walk alone.
