Life is Full of Firsts!

Well, Simon and Bennett had their very first look around the
Does that make me a bad mom that they've never even been inside of the Disney Store?

Well, regardless, I took Simon and Ben to the mall on Sunday afternoon. No daddy. No Talon.
We had such a fun time together. And I wasn't a sweaty mess as we were leaving because I was dealing with all of the kids at the same time. Usually it's just too much! But Simon and Ben are a lot more self sufficient these days so it was really great. We had lunch in the food court. Bought gumballs. Rode the elevator twice. Rode the escalator twice. Rode the carousel once - a.) I wasn't going to spend another 4 bucks and b.) I was so dizzy I just about threw up.
Thanks for a great day boys! I love hanging out with you.
And I got a really cute Buzz Lightyear costume for Halloween next year for 10 bucks! Gotta love that!

I so understand the sweaty mess of the mall adventures!! If, by some glitch in the matrix, I find my self going to the mall with all of my boys, you will always see me in a tank top even if it is January!! Stress, embarrassment, and anger cause an unflattering amount of perspiration!

Oh girl, you are so right!!! Stress, embarrassment and anger...in that order! NOT FUN!

I'm proud of you Mel! :) My kids have only been in that store a couple of times, but they love it! It is really hard to manuever a stroller in there, so that's nice that Talon wasn't with. I'm sure Jonnie had fun with him though! :)

The girls have never been inside the "Princess Store" either. Ain't planning to open that can 'o worms anytime soon!!

Melanie, it seems like your pictures are kind of blurry. Its the kind of bluriness that reminds me of when I got a huge fingerprint on the lens of my camera.... just thought I'd mention it in case that's what's causing it! :)

Melanie said...

Thanks Michelle! The same thing happened last Christmas. I thought my camera was broken. It took forever for me to figure it out!

so.... was there a smudge or do i need glasses? did i tell u the same thing last year? i remember that for some reason...

Melanie said...

oh yeah! the whole lens was covered with a big huge smudge! :) i don't remember about last year...except that i had some really hazy pictures. a few of them actually looked kinda cool. outside at mike & penny's. it sort of looked like it was snowing! i'm glad i didn't have to get a new camera though!
