A day at the mall

The day finally arrived!  Our big trip to Destiny USA!  We had a little time to kill in the morning so Eve took a swim.

At the mall.  First things first, the ropes course!  The moment Lex has been eagerly awaiting for the last five months!

Harnesses on!

Here they go!

Turns out it was a little scary! Look at that serious face!

 

While Lex and Alan did the ropes course, Eve and I went to Build-A-Bear, the thing Eve has been eagerly awaiting.  She saved up all her money to buy this bear and some clothes.

They had a whole rack of Girl Scout clothes you could buy for your bear, including GS undies! I was amused, but we didn’t buy any.

Eve and Chocolate, her new teddy bear.

Rosy joined us at this point and we headed back to the ropes course to check on Alan and Lex.  They were having a blast!!

Having fun.

 

image

Such concentration! This one had no railings, just the tether to hang on to.

 

image

So high!!

 

image

This one made Alan say “whee!” The beams swayed as he walked over them!

 

image

These boys survived the ropes course!! And LOVED it!

We had lunch at the food court, then headed for the carousel.

Fun on the ponies.

Then right back upstairs for the Mirror Maze.  We went through a bunch of times and loved every time.  The place makes me laugh and smile the whole time.  It was crowded this time, which introduces a new kind of fun to the experience.

This is what Alan has been eagerly awaiting!  Pole Position!  He raced hard and was #1 in best lap time!  They gave him a little award certificate and all.  He LOVED it!  :)

Alan is in car #18.

Coming around the corner.

After Pole Position we headed downstairs for glow in the dark mini-golf.  It was an interesting experience and a tough course!

Lex putting.  It was pretty dark in there!

Eve putting. She had the best shirt for black light fun! :)

By this time we were all really tired, so we headed to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.  Dinner was delicious, of course, and we were sure to save room for dessert!

I think this is the first time the kids have had cheesecake. Lex was slightly hesitant, but that piece was full of candy so he overcame his fear and dug in. If only everything new came coated in candy! :)

After dinner and dessert we did a little of this. Well, they did. There rest of us steeled ourselves for the cold air and drive home.

Goodbye Aunt Rosy! Thanks for spending the day at the mall with us! :)

Back at the hotel this was about all we could manage.

 

Now it is late and the morning will come early. It always does in a hotel. I am off to bed! Tomorrow is another busy day.
