Hey guys,

how could I phrase the following?

A mother and daughter are walking to the kitchen, with the daughter's friend following behind them.
The mother's arm is around the daughter's shoulder while they're walking and the daughter is looking back at the friend, thinking about something.

How could I phrase that in the neatest way possible?
I've already got the thought down, I just for the life of me cannot figure out a good way to phrase that action of the mother and daughter walking off like they are.

Any help guys?
