The Destination or the Journey?

Willie was invited by his grandfather to go to the store to get some groceries. It was a long walk in the snow, but he always enjoyed his grandfather's company. As they walked across the countryside, Willie ran over to his neighbor's barn to pet the cow, and then returned back to the road with his grandfather. Then, he ran over to the other neighbor's tree that had a swing hanging from one of the branches. He took a few swings, and then ran back to catch up with his grandfather. A little farther along the road, he saw Sally, a girl from school, sitting on her front porch. Willie ran over to say, “Hi,” and then came back to the road.
