The Scenic Route

Toddler going for a walk

And I, I took the road less traveled by.  I was using a GPS system.

 Does anyone else have this problem?
I love my iPhone.
I didn't have a smart phone until late 2010.  
I didn't think I needed one.
Now I often wonder how I lived without it.

Remember the days when you had to look up an address before you left the house?
You'd print out the google maps directions or, going way back, you would break out the big map in true tourist fashion.
Well, now I just breeze out the door and depend on my iPhone to guide me in the right direction.
This is usually successful but not always efficient.

The other day I took the kids to this fantastic play area at the John Janzen Nature Centre.
It had been years since I'd been {my last memory is getting pooped on by a just-hatched chick as a pre-teen} so I got out my trusty iPhone and plunked in the address.

I even knew better.
I passed the turn that I knew I should take and exited onto a freeway like maps told me to, seriously?
Good thing we weren't in a rush or in the middle of a potty emergency.

I'd like to say it won't happen again.
Wishful thinking.
