Are You Playing Pokemon GO?

I recently downloaded the Pokemon GO app for me and the kids.  When I first heard about it - I had ZERO interest in it. I was never a Pokemon fan, and didn't really get all the hype.  Then, I started to think about it.  I figured that if the kids were into it, it would get us out of the house (although we already spend a lot of time outside with the pool membership, this was more time out and in nature).

Once we started playing, I quickly realized why people loved it so much.  Hubby took Mr.K to the football game Sunday night, which left me and Mr. J.  We decided to go for a walk to a few pokestops.  We were gone for an hour, and we ended up with over 12000 steps for the day (we did a smaller walk earlier in the day). Monday morning after he woke up, we did the same walk again.

He is actually ASKING me to go for walks with him. Mr. K does the smaller walks, but his legs wouldn't last the long one.  It's a fun activity for the 3 of us to do together.  When we go to the pokestops at different parks, they play in between spinning the stops.

So - are you playing Pokemon GO?

    1. If I didn't have the kids, I may have lost interest quickly, but I now play it even without them
