A Walk In The Park

Shira got the day off, and it was nice enough to really take advantage of it. We took a great walk in the Four Mile Run area in Arlington. It has just enough trees to make you feel like your in the wilderness, all while being in town.

Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks that Arlington makes a great place to walk:

[A] December 2007 report released by the Brookings Institution ranks the Washington region first among the country's major metropolitan walkable areas per capita, citing Arlington's pedestrian-friendly urban villages and smart growth as key contributing factors. Seven of the 20 most walkable communities highlighted by the report are Arlington County urban villages.

Even if kids are dissapointed, I have to say, I'm quite satisfied with a 50 degree Christmas.
