I gave in to the kids’ wishes and installed Pokémon Go on my phone so we could all go out and “Pokémon go” together. That turned out to involve a lot of Pokémons and not a whole lot of “going”.

Apparently the neighbourhood is crawling with Pokémons, and every few minutes you have to stop to throw virtual balls at them.

The kids also noticed that we hadn’t walked so much, after we got home and they saw that their Pokémon egg was nowhere near hatching. (Eggs hatch after you have walked a certain distance with them.) They tried walking around in the house to get it to hatch, but the GPS signal was too weak and this did not work at all.
