I have no idea how it started but for some reason, my kids call the new outdoor San Tan Mall the mama mall. Dale and I were supposed to go out for our Mother's day date Friday night but we couldn't find a babysitter so we decided to all go to the mama mall and play for a bit. And to maybe let mama buy a new shirt to make herself feel better about not going on a date.
Not many people can pull off the big glasses:
Rex is a soda freak and we hardly ever let him have some so this was maybe the best night ever for him:
We found this cute little guy:
Actually, he's not real. As soon as Tabby reached out to pet him, I made a barking noise. She jumped about a mile. What a mean mom! Rex was really nervous about the dog. He didn't know what to make of it.
We love the play area:
This is the first time Ella actually played on the toys. Usually she is trying to escape:
She's got awesome sliding skills.
What? Filthy feet? Me? Never!
I don't care what kind of shoes they are, Ella will get them off. It's more trouble finding the pair of shoes she chucked in a store somewhere than just having her go barefoot.
I know this is an odd picture but there's a cute story behind it:
These little sprinkler markers are all over the mall area right now. Tabby goes up to one to see what the picture is on it. Then she runs over to me and says, "Those flags mean we are supposed to watch out for reindeer." Well, obviously. What else could they mean?
