    Please help me with rewriting sentence.

    Dear teacher,

    For the 2 sentences below:

    We have dinner.
    Then my father usually goes out for a walk.


    Please advise me which one below is correct:
    My father usually goes out for a walk after dinner.

    They're both correct but suggest slightly different situations.

    The first suggests that he always goes for a walk after dinner, no matter where he has eaten dinner or with whom.

    The second suggests that he always goes for a walk after you have eaten together as a family.
