    march

    We cannot go into the house, but I can still walk through the rooms in memory. I can still see the enthusiastic family marching into and out of the house. I could never have enough of being with them.

    Q: Is "marching" naturally used here?

    Thanks!

    For me, it is a little odd. I have never seen families march except in parades.

    So can you think of any natural word which has a similar meaning? Can I use "pouring" instead?

    Thanks!

    Yes, that would be better for me: or running, or moving, or walking.
